Big girls don't cry : the election that changed everything for American women by Rebecca Traister( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,133 libraries worldwide
It was all as unpredictable as it was riveting: Hillary Clinton's improbable rise, her fall and her insistence on pushing forward straight through to her remarkable phoenix flight from the race; Sarah Palin's attempt not only to fill the void left by Clinton, but to alter the very definition of feminism and claim some version of it for conservatives; liberal rapture over Barack Obama and the historic election of our first African-American president; the media microscope trained on Michelle Obama, harsher even than the one Hillary had endured fifteen years earlier. Meanwhile, media women like Katie Couric and Rachel Maddow altered the course of the election, and comedians like Tina Fey and Amy Poehler helped make feminism funny. As Traister sees it, the 2008 election was good for women. The campaign for the presidency reopened some of the most fraught American conversations about gender, race and generational difference, about sexism on the left and feminism on the right, all difficult discussions that had been left unfinished but that are crucial to further perfecting our union

Part 4. When we read about great women in history books, or see them in paintings, we don't always get the full picture. For example, the great feminist foremother. You probably think these were women of great principle, and you'd be right. But how tough was it for them to stick to those principles. You'd probably be surprised to know that many of them faced struggles not unlike those we face today. Lori Marso is the author of Feminist Thinkers and the Demands of Femininity: The Lives and Work of Intellectual Women. The book details some of the struggles early feminist intellectuals and the women who laid the foundations for modern feminism. Over the next few weeks we'll be talking with Lori about a few of those women and their challenges. We start today with England's first great feminist, Mary Wollstonecraft. (6:31)

Still, some believe the key difference between this latest court case...and earlier Supreme Court rulings lies in the make-up of the court since the departure of moderate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. Laura Liyama reports... (4:45)
