From the best-selling author of Women Who Read Are Dangerous, here are portraits of vanguard women writers, past and present, from Austen to Woolf, and Anais Nin to Toni Morrison. For many women writers, merely pursuing their vocation constituted an act of resistance. In this book, best-selling author Stefan Bollman creates revealing one-page portraits of important women writers, from across genres and around the world, each paired with a beautiful photograph or painting. Here are canonical women writers, including Isak Dinesen, Beatrix Potter, and Sylvia Plath; living luminaries such as Toni Morrison, Isabelle Allende, and Arundhati Roy; and lesser-known but no less important women like Selma Lagerlof, the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, and Irene Nemirovsky, author of the rediscovered Holocaust memoir Suite Francaise. Francine Prose contributes a foreword that explores the women's courage and talent. AUTHOR: Stefan Bollmann, author of Abbeville's best-selling Women Who Read Are Dangerous, lives in Munich. SELLING POINTS: * A series of short illustrated biographies, from medieval era to the present day, told with the premise that for many women, writing itself is an act of resistance. * In a giftable format and illustrated with paintings and photographs of the featured writers, it can be merchandised with books about books, feminist books, and even art books. * The book's thesis is especially relevant to readers today, with the rise of the women's march,#metoo, and other women's activist movements in the past 18 months. * By the same author and in the same format as the best-selling Women Who Read Are Dangerous. 70 illustrations
"This book brings together a selection of paintings, drawings, prints and photographs for women reading by a diverse range of artists from the Middle Ages to the present day. Each image is accompanied by a commentary explaining the context in which it was created - who the reader is, her relationship with the artist, and what she was reading. This book will appeal to book lovers and anyone interested in the depiction of women in art."--BOOK JACKET.

The story of the American university in the past half century is about the rise of women in participation as students, faculty members, college athletes, and in subsequently changing the overall university culture for the better. Now almost sixty percent of the overall college student population in America is female, and still growing. By the year 2000, women surpassed men worldwide in attendance at higher education institutions. At the same time, after years of a disproportionate dominant male professoriate, female faculty members are now becoming the majority of university professors. While top university presidents are still largely male, women have achieved real gains in the overall administrative ranks and trustee positions. In all areas of the university disparities still exist in terms of compensation and balance in key areas of the academy, but the overall positive trend is clear. Few to this date have recognized and chronicled this extraordinary change in college education—one of society’s fundamental and influential institutions. For universities the test for the future is to make the changes needed in broad areas within higher education from financial aid to curriculum, student activities, and overall campus culture in order to better foster a newly empowered majority of women students.
