On Our Own Terms
On Our Own Terms (July 1992)
Redefining Competence and Femininity
Maggie Mulqueen - Author

By redefining current theories of competence motivation and sex-role identity, this work offers a powerful reconceptualiztion of what it means to be a competent woman in today's society. Analyses of case studies of competent women lead to a new theory that enables women to attain positive self-esteem based on internally desired and determined criteria. This new theory challenges prevailing theories of competence motivation and sex-role identity d...(Read More)
 
 
Pioneers and Homemakers
Pioneers and Homemakers (July 1992)
Jewish Women in Pre-State Israel
Deborah S. Bernstein - Editor

“It is a revisionary book which debunks a lot of the myths which have been attached to Zionism, and which graphically demonstrates, as well, the ways the experiences and contributions of women have been sidelined both by the Zionist male leadership and by historians of the movement up to now. The topic is both extremely significant in itself — this is truly a pioneering and important work — and central, as well, to several important f...(Read More)

Revealing Reveiling
Revealing Reveiling (July 1992)
Islamist Gender Ideology in Contemporary Egypt
Sherifa Zuhur - Author

"It provides an important look at the very comtemporary phenomenon of veiling in Egypt through the first-hand reports of the women whom Zuhur has interviewed. Her subjects come across as real people and their discussion in relation to the various questions asked provide quite compelling views of the reason why they favor -- and oppose -- veiling." -- Jane I. Smith, Iliff School of Theology

In modern Egypt, the pace of Islamic resurgence has ...(Read More)
 
 
The Tao of Islam
The Tao of Islam (March 1992)
A Sourcebook on Gender Relationships in Islamic Thought
Sachiko Murata - Author
Annemarie Schimmel - Foreword by

"This is a genuine foundational work in Islamic studies. It is an open door into the very heart of Islamic civilization, while at the same time it suggests the bases of important comparisons and insights for those interested in cognate areas in Western cultures.

"It is a fascinating, truly original work in both its guiding perspectives and its comprehensive, clearly presented account of a central dimension of Islam. There is nothing like it...(Read More)
 
 
The Battered Woman and Shelters
The Battered Woman and Shelters (February 1992)
The Social Construction of Wife Abuse
Donileen R. Loseke - Author

"The book brings a fresh and needed perspective to an issue that is too often treated in the simplistic fashion of a television movie. There are no persons wearing 'white' and 'black' hats in this book. Rather, the book focuses on the practical dilemmas and circumstances faced by shelter workers in fulfilling their professional obligations. Loseke offers us a way of seeing shelter work as it is. In doing so, she raises issues that some readers m...(Read More)
 
 
The Politics of Voice
The Politics of Voice (February 1992)
Liberalism and Social Criticism from Franklin to Kingston
Malini Johar Schueller - Author

"I am very impressed by Schueller's identification and analysis of the generic identity of these disparate texts as well as by her deft handling of the complex issues of the politics within and among them. I think that in itself constitutes a significant contribution to American literary scholarship. The author has done an excellent job of laying out the formal and rhetorical strategies common among these books that she labels as personal-politica...(Read More)
 
 
Women in Engineering
Women in Engineering (February 1992)
Gender, Power, and Workplace Culture
Judith S. McIlwee - Author
J. Gregg Robinson - Author

Who are the women who became engineers in the 1970s and 1980s?

How have they fared in the most male-dominated profession in America? This is the first book to answer these questions. It explores the backgrounds, family lives, work experiences, and attitudes of engineers in order to explain the unequal patterns of career development for women, who generally hold lower positions and receive fewer promotions than their male coun...(Read More)
 
 
They Call Her Pastor
They Call Her Pastor (February 1992)
A New Role for Catholic Women
Ruth A. Wallace - Author

"The book portrays a clear and detailed picture of the life and work of Catholic women pastors. The anecdotes and quotes make the people come alive. (It also) gives us the first look at an important religious phenomenon. It deals with the Church's struggle to come to grips with social changes in twentieth-century American society. These shifts include the women's movement, secularization, and desacralization of church structures. These p...(Read More)
 
 
The Annual Review of Women in World Religions
The Annual Review of Women in World Religions (October 1991)
Volume I
Arvind Sharma - Editor
Katherine K. Young - Editor

This annual encourages the exploration of horizons and perspectives in women's studies not possible otherwise. It is not confined in scope to the traditional religions--it also includes new religious movements within its scope, while at the same time providing an outlet for specialized studies on women in traditional religions to reach a wider audience. It thus incorporates both the traditional and contemporary dimension.

This work grew out...(Read More)
