This book explores the experience of women whose mothers called themselves feminists - young women directly influenced by the examples and teachings of mothers working toward equality and the transformation of the home, the workplace, and the world at large. Rose L. Glickman, a feminist historian and mother, has interviewed fifty women between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five of varied ethnic backgrounds and family structures, to find out where they stand on the issues central to their mothers' feminist perspective. Their candid, thought-provoking, often surprising responses reveal the complexities behind media generalizations about the "post-feminist" generation. Daughters of Feminists begins by exploring the daughters' attitudes toward the word feminist itself. In subsequent chapters, each on a different topic, the daughters tell how growing up in a feminist household shaped their values, choices, and aspirations. They discuss work, family life, friendship, sexuality and femininity, self-image, public and private roles, feminism and racism. This book is an illuminating look at a diverse group of young women as they reinterpret their mothers' legacy to fit their own lives and times. It is filled with personal anecdotes that will engage mothers, daughters, and all readers concerned with the unfolding story of feminism in today's social climate.
Austrian writer Ingeborg Bachmann is widely regarded as one of the most important 20th century authors writing in German. This book examines her poetry and prose in historical context, arguing that the feminist interpretations of her writings are the result of shifts in theoretical emphases over a period of three decades.
"A completely new and different book from her earlier Sandino's Daughters. The core is a dozen lengthy interviews with feminist women (all but one), hence not randomly drawn from Nicaraguan society. Randall opens the volume with a useful, wide-ranging interpretative survey of history, politics, and the social situation of women. One observation that sticks: women who most resembled men in their conduct rose highest under Sandinista rule"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
An unprecedented analysis of an alarming schism in the wome's movement: the differences between black and white women's perspectives, attitudes and concerns. It presents an overview of women's status through history and discusses the vital issues where common differences occur; sexuality, men and marriage, mothers and daughters, media images, and the direction of the movement itself.
In 1976, Adrienne Rich wrote in Of Woman Born: Motherhood as Experience and Institution that Othe cathexis between mother and daughter_essential, distorted, misused_is the great unwritten story.O In the quarter century since Rich wrote those words, the topic of mothers and daughters has emerged as a salient issue in feminist scholarship. Using womenOs writing, film, feminist theory, and personal experience, contributors to Mothers and Daughters explore how the mother/daughter relationship is represented and experienced as a site of empowerment. This volume will offer readers an important and welcome chapter in the story of the complex relationship that is a part of nearly every womanOs life.
With its focus on narratives, its attention to contextual and material realities, and its collection of women-identified liturgies in global context, Dissident Daughters claims prominence within the growing literature on women's ways of worship. This book not only introduces liturgical texts, but focuses on the communities that create and celebrate these liturgies. Dissident Daughters gives voice to the women activists in these communities who show how their communities came into being; how social, cultural, and political realities shaped them and their liturgies; and how they envision their lives in and as communities of faith. In drawing the different narratives together, Dissident Daughters displays the expanse of the worldwide expression of women's rites, and how each is shaped by distinctly different contexts of struggle and hope.
Feminisms and Womanisms brings together theory and practical application, so that feminist discourse interacts as a partner with the lived experience of women's social action. The selections combine classics in feminist thought with work from modern theorists and offer a solid foundation in international feminism. The conceptual understanding embedded in the terms feminism and womanism contributes to feminist discourse, a carefully differentiated focus on the ideological uses of language to define relationships that have been historically mired in domination. The terms also define the way gender often has been used to signify and support domination. Given that feminism and womanism are interpretive concepts, there is always a sense that knowledge-making is in progress; for there is nothing static or stagnant about feminism, feminist theory and feminist action. The formative nature of the feminist movement has, of necessity, a parallel interpretive theory. This reader embraces both the formative nature of the movement and the accompanying interpretive theories. It also pays attention to the chronological, cultural, geopolitical, racial and ethnic landscapes and sites where women live, carry out social action and theorize issues of equality. For both the general and academic reader, this book will be edifying while providing exposure to the feminist, womanist voices that inform the scholarship.
