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

14 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 1,286 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
Grassroots : a field guide for feminist activism by Jennifer Baumgardner( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 772 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

I still believe Anita Hill( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the fall of 1991, Anita Hill captured the country's attention, when she testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee describing sexual harassment by Clarence Thomas, who had been her boss, and was about to ascend to the Supreme Court. We know what happened: she was challenged, disbelieved, and humiliated; he was given a life-long appointment to decide America's judicial fate. What is less known is how many women and men were inspired because of Anita Hill's bravery, how her testimony changed the feminist movement, and how she singlehandedly brought public awareness to the issue of sexual harassment. Thomas might have won his seat, but Anita Hill's legacy mobilized the women's movement and our need to demand more than the status quo. Twenty years later, this collection brings together three generations to witness, respond to, and analyze Hill's impact and present insights in law; politics; the confluence of race, class, and gender; the persistent questioning of women's credibility; and current cases of sexual harassment. With original contributions by Anita Hill, Melissa Harris-Perry, Catharine MacKinnon, Patricia J. Williams, Eve Ensler, Ai Jen Poo, Kimberly Crenshaw, Lynn Nottage, Gloria Steinem, Lani Guinier, Lisa Kron, Mary Oliver, Edwidge Danticat, Kevin Powell, and many others

Writing dysfunction : a problem in college composition courses by Amy Richards( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many college students who have been labeled semi-literate because of their excessively poor writing ability in fact possess a neurological dysfunction known as dysgraphia. The symptoms of this disorder range from a consistent but minor inability to spell to a major disarrangement of letters and syntax. The best way to identify dysgraphic students is to acquaint composition teachers with the writing peculiarities that distinguish them from students with more traditional deficiencies. Unfortunately, even when such students have been identified treatment is not easy. In individual conferences some improvement in spelling has been produced through overlearning, a technique used for elementary school students with similar problems. Severely dsygraphic students at many universities may receive help from vocational rehabilitation programs. The most valuable help for dysgraphics, however, can be given in the classroom by composition teachers if they ignore spelling and instead stress the composing process and standard grammar. To establish the causes of deficient writing among college students in general, it is essential to isolate the specific causes as they are discovered. Identifying dysgraphia makes it possible to recognize other factors that contribute to the label of illiteracy. (Student papers are appended.) (Fl)
