Manifesta : young women, feminism, and the future by Jennifer Baumgardner( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Young women today live by feminism's goals, yet feminism itself is undeniably at a crossroads; 'girl power' feminists appear to be obsessed with personal empowerment at the expense of politics, while political institutions such as Ms. and NOW are so battle weary they've lost their ability to speak to a new generation. In Manifesta, Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards examine the snags in the movement - from the dissolution of Riot Grrrls into the likes of the Spice Girls, to older women's hawking of young girls' imperiled self-esteem, to the hyped hatred of feminist thorns like Katie Roiphe - and prove that these snags have not, in fact, torn feminism asunder. In contrast, they show the vibrance with which the movement has evolved, detail important political goals that still need to be achieved, and spell out what a world with true equality would look like"--Jacket

Chronicling the battles that have shaped modern conceptions of feminism across generations, this book illuminates how younger women are reliving--often without realizing it--the battles of the past.

Grassroots : a field guide for feminist activism by Jennifer Baumgardner( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A handbook for anyone involved in, or contemplating, feminist activism. Relates the author's experiences as a grassroots organizer embracing creative new forms of activism. Aimed at everyone from students to professionals, stay-at-home moms to artists, Grassroots answers the perennial question: What can I do? Based on the authors' own experiences, and the stories of activists as well as everyday people, Grassroots encourages people to move beyond the "generic three" (check writing, calling congresspeople, and volunteering) and make a difference with clear guidelines and models for activism. The authors draw heavily on individual stories as examples, inspiring readers to recognize the tools right in front of them--be it the office copier or the family living room--in order to make change.--From publisher description
Look both ways : bisexual politics by Jennifer Baumgardner( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For author and activist Baumgardner, bisexuality has always been more than the "sexual non-preference of the '90s." Here she takes a close look at gay and bisexual people on the national cultural stage and the issues their growing visibility raises. In a society supposedly grown more open and accepting, what can it mean that bisexuality continues to be marginalized by both gay and straight cultures, and dismissed either as a phase or, worse, a cop-out? Baumgardner discusses her own experience as a bisexual, and the struggle she's undergone to reconcile the privilege of a woman who is perceived as straight, and the empowerment and satisfaction she's derived from her relationships with women. Her book is a study in bisexual lives lived secretly and openly, and an exploration of the lessons learned by writers, artists, and activists who have refused the either/or paradigm defended by both gay and straight communities."--Publisher description

F 'em! : goo goo, gaga, and some thoughts on balls by Jennifer Baumgardner( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"F 'em! is a mix of old and new essays by Baumgardner, ranging in tone from laugh-out-loud confessional to sobering analysis. She investigates topics as varied as purity balls, sexuality, motherhood, and shared breastfeeding; rape, reproductive rights, and the future of feminism. The essays in F 'em are rounded out by candid one-on-one interviews with leading feminists who have influenced Baumgardner's perspectives - including Riot Grrrls' Kathleen Hanna, Native American activist Winona LaDuke, transgender activist Julia Serano, and artists like Ani DiFranco, Björk, and Amy Ray. At turns intimate, fierce, philosophical, and funny, they are an intimate window into the minds and hearts of Third Wave pioneers. Holding it all together is Baumgardner's insightful thinking about what it means to be a feminist today, as she answers frequently-asked questions: What does it mean to be a woman today? Do we even need feminism anymore?"--Pub. desc

Slut : a play and guidebook for combating sexism and sexual violence( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""SLUT is truthful, raw, and immediate! Experience this play and witness what American young women live with everyday."--Gloria Steinem - Remember the slut at your school? Whether used as a slur or reclaimed as an expression of sexy confidence, this word has been used as an acceptable excuse for rape, bullying, and the sexual double standard. In the spirit of The Vagina Monologues, this riveting, critically acclaimed play, written in collaboration with New York City high school students, sheds light on enduring feminist issues. The play is accompanied by production notes, a guide for talk-backs, and provocative essays by Carol Gilligan, Jennifer Baumgardner, and Jarrod Chin of Mentors in Violence Prevention (MVP), among others, providing the resources to inspire change within our communities and ourselves. Katie Cappiello and Meg McInerney are the creative director and managing director of the revolutionary feminist acting school The Arts Effect. In their ten years of teaching, they have brought theater arts programming to public, private, and special education schools worldwide. Their work has been hailed by Secretary of State Hillary R. Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Eve Ensler, Kathy Najimy, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler, and they have been honored by The National Women's Hall of Fame and The United States Congress for their dedicated, cutting-edge work empowering young girls. Jennifer Baumgardner is the executive director of The Feminist Press at CUNY as well as an author, activist, and filmmaker."--

Outlaw woman : a memoir of the war years, 1960-1975 by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1968, the author became a founding member of the early women's liberation movement. Along with a small group of dedicated women, she produced the seminal journal series, No More Fun and Games. She was also a dedicated anti-war activist and organizer throughout the 1960s and 1970s. During the war years she was a fiery, indefatigable public speaker on issues of patriarchy, capitalism, imperialism, and racism. She worked in Cuba with the Venceremos Brigade, and formed associations with other revolutionaries across the spectrum of radical and underground politics, including the SDS, the Weather Underground, the Revolutionary Union, and the African National Congress. But unlike the majority of those in the New Left, she grew up poor, female, and part-Indian in rural Oklahoma, and she often found herself at odds not only with the ruling class but also with the Left and with the women's movement. Her odyssey from dust-bowl poverty to the urban radical fringes of the New Left gives a working-class, feminist perspective on a time and a movement which forever changed American society. -- From book jacket
