“Filled with fascinating detail . . . this second volume of French’s massive and valuable work is an example of scholarship and clear vision.” —Publishers Weekly This volume of New York Times–bestselling author Marilyn French’s monumental history analyzes and evaluates the lives of women in societies around the world between feudal times and the French Revolution. Drawing upon fifteen years of collaboration with a team of researchers and prominent historians, the volume opens with fascinating chapters comparing medieval Europe and Japan, disparate cultures which nevertheless shared traditions of male dominated aggression and competitiveness. French then shows how, in Europe, this tradition led to colonialism and imperialism, and the horrific subjugation of indigenous societies, just as women were subjugated in the conquerors’ home countries. As French makes clear in this impassioned women’s history, only with the French Revolution did the political force women exerted powerfully change the course of history. “French gives us grand theory at its best, wading through copious amounts of scholarly data on the histories of civilizations and offering up, in readable prose, an important synthesis.” —Library Journal

The year is 1970: The Supreme Court has legalized abortion, “Equal Pay for Equal Work” is now the law, and Affirmative Action programs attempt to redress past injustices and inequities. Women are coming together nationwide in “consciousness-raising” groups, sharing their knowledge and experiences with each other. A group of six women in Stentoria, California bond through such a group, and support each other as women in this new “Movement” are forming collectives; publishing their own books and periodicals; creating an exciting new genre of “Women’s Music”; as well as starting their own bookstores, to make these new materials readily available to the community. New spiritual movements—focused on the “Divine Feminine” principle—are also beginning. Even some men are sympathetic and supportive of these ideals. But as the 1980s arrive, the situation changes: the “backlash” against the women’s movement in politics and the media seemingly turns into a full-fledged “war,” specifically targeting the gains that women have achieved. Opposition from traditional religions hardens, and women’s reproductive rights come under renewed attack; the Equal Rights Amendment fails, even as women themselves debate controversial questions: such as banning pornography, and how to view a rising “Third Wave” of the women’s movement. Ominously, the threat of AIDS seemingly brings the era of “sexual freedom” to a close. The six women deal with all these issues, as well as personal challenges—including balancing work and family responsibilities. As the new century begins, they reflect about what the women’s movement ultimately accomplished. In a world now characterized by growing economic inequality, increasing low self-esteem for some women (exemplified by cosmetic surgery and “extreme makeovers”), legalized same-sex marriage, and media attention to Transgender issues, this book may help you to appreciate not only how far we’ve come, but how far we have yet to go.

There have always been mail-order brides in America—but we haven’t always thought about them in the same ways. In Buying a Bride, Marcia A. Zug starts with the so-called “Tobacco Wives” of the Jamestown colony and moves all the way forward to today’s modern same-sex mail-order grooms to explore the advantages and disadvantages of mail-order marriage. It’s a history of deception, physical abuse, and failed unions. It’s also the story of how mail-order marriage can offer women surprising and empowering opportunities. Drawing on a forgotten trove of colorful mail-order marriage court cases, Zug explores the many troubling legal issues that arise in mail-order marriage: domestic abuse and murder, breach of contract, fraud (especially relating to immigration), and human trafficking and prostitution. She tells the story of how mail-order marriage lost the benign reputation it enjoyed in the Civil War era to become more and more reviled over time, and she argues compellingly that it does not entirely deserve its current reputation. While it is a common misperception that women turn to mail-order marriage as a desperate last resort, most mail-order brides are enticed rather than coerced. Since the first mail-order brides arrived on American shores in 1619, mail-order marriage has enabled women to improve both their marital prospects and their legal, political, and social freedoms. Buying A Bride uncovers this history and shows us how mail-order marriage empowers women and should be protected and even encouraged.

Anne Wilson Schaef builds on her former bestseller, Womens Reality, her New York Times bestseller When Society Becomes an Addict, and her multi-million copy bestseller Meditations for Women Who Do Too Much to bring us all up to date on the Womens Movement. She explores the potentially positive impact that women can and must harness to step forward for further development of the human race and for the planet as a whole. She explores the history of the waves of the Womens Movement and the personal, interpersonal, and cultural stoppers that have kept women from reaching their full potential. She demonstrates how womens special talents and assets are essential for dealing with the symptoms of what has become a dysfunctional society. This book not only offers hope and opportunity for women to step up and shape a society with their unique gifts, it offers hope for the planet itself.
