Astro turf : the private life of rocket science by M. G Lord( Book )

During the late 1960s, while M.G. Lord was becoming a teenager in Southern California and her mother was dying of cancer, Lord's father--an archetypal, remote, Cold War-era rocket engineer--disappeared into his work at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, helping build the space probes of the Mariner Mars 69 mission. Thirty years later, Lord found herself reporting on the JPL, triggering childhood memories and a desire to revisit her past as a way of understanding the ethos of rocket science
The accidental feminist : how Elizabeth Taylor raised our consciousness and we were too distracted by her beauty to notice by M. G Lord( Book )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 586 libraries worldwide
Movie stars build their roles into brands--and the Taylor brand is startlingly feminist. In her breakout film, "National Velvet" (1944), Taylor challenged gender discrimination, playing a jockey who had to pose as a male to race. Her next landmark, "A Place in the Sun" (1951), tackles abortion rights. In "Butterfield 8" (1960), she is censured not because she's a prostitute, but because she controls her own sexuality. And the classic "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966) depicts the anguish that befalls a woman when the only way she can express herself is through her husband's career and children. Taylor's personal life, too, is remarkable: financially autonomous, she supported her parents as a teenager. As an adult, she supported the right of people to love whomever they love--regardless of gender. Her legendary friendships with her gay male costars inspired her to become a major fundraiser for AIDS research in the 1980s, before the cause became fashionable. Drawing upon unpublished letters and scripts, as well as interviews with Gore Vidal, Robert Forster, Austin Pendleton, Kevin McCarthy and others, this is a long overdue reappraisal.--From publisher description

Drawing conclusions editorial cartoonists consider Hillary Rodham Clinton ( visu )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
Running mate: Geraldine Ferraro's candidacy for Vice President in the 1984 presidential election drew fascinating gender-based commentary from editorial cartoonists. The subject of the first woman candidate on a major party ticket was irresistible. The cartoonists' commentary on Ferraro's candidacy took a variety of forms--some predictable, such as relying on images of aprons and rolling pins and swapped gender identity, and others with a surprising level of sexual innuendo. The film features interviews with Ferraro herself and with three political cartoonists
