3 Jepsen, Dee Women: Beyond Equal Rights
0849904048 / 9780849904042; What do women really want? The author digs deep to find out why women's problems have been only partially solved by legislation, why women have so much difficulty in discovering their true identity and self-worth, and how men have been affected by women's new self-awareness and changing status. Insightful discussion focuses on such volatile issues as abortion and homosexuality; the chain of family authority, including the biblical "submission"; the role of church and society in promoting the value of women, with attention to the influence of advertising, media, and particularly "the Playboy mentality" on attitudes toward women. The author offers an affirmative voice for all women, for all human beings. . . . Includes endnotes. The reddish binding has a 1" horizontal scratch near the bottom. The jacket has been price clipped. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

Stitches: a Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair, Lamott, Anne
4 Lamott, Anne Stitches: a Handbook on Meaning, Hope and Repair
What do we do when life lurches out of balance? How can we reconnect to one another and to what's sustaining when evil and catastrophe seem inescapable? These questions are at the heart of Stitches, and the author explores how we find meaning and peace in these times; where we can start again after personal or public devastation. We begin by gathering together the torn shreds of our emotional and spiritual fabric and sewing them back together, one stitch at a time. Slowly this quilt begins our life again, and embedded in it are strength, warmth, humor, and humanity. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
