Malcolm launched EMILYs List, a powerhouse political organization that seeks to ignite change by getting women elected to office. The rest is riveting history: Between 1986 when there were only 12 Democratic women in the House and none in the Senate and now, EMILYs List has helped elect 19 women Senators, 11 governors, and 110 Democratic women to the House.    Incorporating exclusive interviews with Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Tammy Baldwin, and others, When Women Win delivers stories of some of the toughest political contests of the past three decades, including the historic victory of Barbara Mikulski as the first Democratic woman elected to the Senate in her own right; the defeat of Todd Akin ("legitimate rape") by Claire McCaskill; and Elizabeth Warrens dramatic win over incumbent Massachusetts senator Scott Brown.   When Women Win includes Malcolm's own story the high drama of Anita Hills sexual harassment testimony against Clarence Thomas and its explosive effects on womens engagement in electoral politics; the long nights spent watching the polls after months of dogged campaigning; the heartbreaking losses and unprecedented victories but its also a page-turning political saga that may well lead up to the election of the first woman president of the United States.     ...

This is the burden of philosopher Slavoj Žižeks argument in this pathbreaking and eclectic new work. Recent history has seen developments such as quantum physics and Freudian psychoanalysis, not to speak of the failure of twentieth-century communism, shake our understanding of existence.In the process, the dominant tradition in Western philosophy lost its moorings. To bring materialism up to date, Žižek – himself a committed materialist and communist – proposes a radical revision of our intellectual heritage. He argues that dialectical materialism is the only true philosophical inheritor of what Hegel designated the "speculative" approach in thought.Absolute Recoil is a startling reformulation of the basis and possibilities of contemporary philosophy. While focusing on how to overcome the transcendental approach without regressing to naive, pre-Kantian realism, Žižek offers a series of excursions into todays political, artistic, and ideological landscape, from Arnold Schoenbergs music to the films of Ernst Lubitsch...

    I Have Devoted My Life to the Clitoris [Elizabeth Hall] (Tapa Blanda)

    - Autor: Elizabeth Hall- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: Tarpaulin Sky Press- ISBN-13: 9781939460073- Páginas: 80- Dimensiones: 20.07cm. x 13.21cm. x 0.76cm.- Peso: 0.03 kg.- Descripción:Literary Nonfiction. California Interest. LGBT Studies. Women's Studies. Elizabeth Hall began writing I HAVE DEVOTED MY LIFE TO THE CLITORIS in the summer of 2010 after reading Thomas Laqueur's Making Sex. She was particularly struck by Laqueur's bold assertion: "More words have been shed, I suspect, about the clitoris, than about any other organ, or at least, any organ its size." How was it possible that Hall had been reading compulsively for years and never once stumbled upon this trove of prose devoted to the clit? If Lacquer's claim was correct, where were all these "words"? And more: what did size have to do with it? Hall set out to find all that had been written about the clit past and present. As she soon discovered, the history of the clitoris is no ordinary tale; rather, its history is marked by the act of forgetting. "Marvelously researched and sculpted... Bulleted points rat-tat-tatting the patriarchy, strobing with pleasure."aDodie Bellamy "Freud, terra cotta cunts, hyenas, anatomists, and Acker, mixed with a certain slant of light on a windowsill and a leg thrown open invite us... Bawdy and beautiful."aWendy C. Ortiz "Gorgeous little book about a gorgeous little organ... Mines discourses as varied as sexology, plastic surgery, literature and feminism to produce an eye-opening compendium... The 'tender button' finally gets its due."aJanet Sarbanes "God this book is glorious... You will learn and laugh and wonder why it took you so long to find this book."aSuzanne Scanlon "The luxury of lingering in pleasure is what Hall's book gives its readers, not only because the subject is at once sexy and scientifically compelling, but because it is rendered with graceful care, delivering in small bites an investigation of the clit that is simultaneously a meditation on the myriad ways in which smallness hides power."aThe Rumpu...

Golden LCSW- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: G H Publishing, LLC- ISBN-13: 9780965464949- Páginas: 58- Dimensiones: 21.59cm. x 13.97cm. x 0.36cm.- Peso: 0.14 kg.- Descripción:The Way Men Heal is a concise book that offers insight into the masculine side of healing. Have you ever wondered why men and women seem to heal differently? If so, this is a book for you. It explains how and why men and some women heal in an active mode rather than an interactive one. It offers plenty of examples including Eric Clapton and how he healed after the death of his young son Conor, and Michael Jordan and how he healed after his fathers murder. You will see how these men and many others use action as a means to tell their story. You will see how they are pulled to the future and use honoring as a means to heal rather than the expected interactive "talking about the past" modes. You will see how those who use these modes do so in a way that is simply not easily detected. It is basically invisible. The book offers a section on how to help the men you love and also a section offering therapists clinical ideas for working with men. If you are a man, read this book to affirm your unique way of healing. If you are a woman, read this book to understand the men you love. When we understand each other our relationships flourish...
