Bates, L: Everyday Sexism/Laura Bates (Autor)
In a culture that's driven by social media, women are using this online space to come together, share their stories and encourage a new generation to recognise the problems that women face. This book is a call to arms in a new wave of feminism, and it proves sexism is endemic - socially, politically and economically - but women won't stand for it.

Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism/ Natasha Walter (Autor), Anna Bentinck (Erzähler)
"I once believed that we only had to put in place the conditions for equality for the remnants of old-fashioned sexism in our culture to wither away. I am ready to admit that I was wrong."
Empowerment, liberation, choice. Once the watchwords of feminism, these terms have now been co-opted by a society that sells women an airbrushed, highly sexualised and increasingly narrow vision of femininity. Drawing on a wealth of research and personal interviews, Living Dolls is a straight-talking, passionate, and important book that makes us look afresh at women and girls, at sexism and femininity - today.

Surviving Sexism in Academia: Strategies for Feminist Leadership / Kirsti Cole (Herausgeber), Holly Hassel (Herausgeber)
This edited collection contends that if women are to enter into leadership positions at equal levels with their male colleagues, then sexism in all its forms must be acknowledged, attended to, and actively addressed. This interdisciplinary collection—Surviving Sexism in Academia: Strategies for Feminist Leadership—is part storytelling, part autoethnography, part action plan. The chapters document and analyze everyday sexism in the academy and offer up strategies for survival, ultimately 'lifting the veil" from the good old boys/business-as-usual culture that continues to pervade academia in both visible and less-visible forms, forms that can stifle even the most ambitious women in their careers.

Misogynation: The True Scale of Sexism/Laura Bates (Autor)
'Following [Everyday Sexism] will make most women feel oddly saner.' Caitlin Moran
'Piercingly astute.' Stylist
Laura Bates, pioneering feminist, activist and bestselling author, has given voice to hundreds of thousands of women through her international Everyday Sexism Project. Drawing attention to both hidden and blatant sexist acts and attitudes, Laura has exposed the startling truth behind misogyny in our society: systemic, ingrained and ignored.
From Weinstein to Westminster, a torrent of allegations of sexual harassment and assault have left us reeling. One hundred years since some women were first given the right to vote, we are still struggling to get to grips with the true extent of gender inequality that continues to flourish in our society.
In this collection of essays, originally published in the Guardian, Laura Bates uncovers the sexism that exists in our relationships, our workplaces, our media, in our homes and on our streets, but which is also firmly rooted in our lifelong assumptions and in the actions and attitudes we explain away, defend and accept. Often dismissed as one-offs, veiled as 'banter' or described as 'isolated incidents', MISOGYNATION joins the dots to reveal the true scale of discrimination and prejudice women face.
A bold, witty and incisive analysis of current events, MISOGYNATION makes a passionate argument for stepping back, opening our eyes and allowing ourselves to see the bigger picture.

How to Be a Woman/Caitlin Moran (Autor, Erzähler)
1913 - Suffragette throws herself under the King's horse. 1969 - Feminists storm Miss World. Now - Caitlin Moran rewrites "The Female Eunuch" from a bar stool and demands to know why pants are getting smaller. There's never been a better time to be a woman: we have the vote and the Pill, and we haven't been burnt as witches since 1727. However, a few nagging questions do remain...Why are we supposed to get Brazilians? Should you get Botox? Do men secretly hate us? What should you call your vagina? Why does your bra hurt? And why does everyone ask you when you're going to have a baby? Part memoir, part rant, Caitlin Moran answers these questions and more in "How To Be A Woman" - following her from her terrible 13th birthday ('I am 13 stone, have no friends, and boys throw gravel at me when they see me') through adolescence, the workplace, strip-clubs, love, fat, abortion, TopShop, motherhood and beyond.
Caitlin Moran had literally no friends in 1990, and so had plenty of time to write her firstnovel, The Chronicles of Narmo, at the age of fifteen. At sixteen she joined music weekly Melody Maker and at eighteen briefly presented the pop show 'Naked City' on Channel 4. Following this precocious start she then put in eighteen solid years as a columnist on The Times - both as a TV critic and also in the most-read part of the paper, the satirical celebrity column 'Celebrity Watch'.
The eldest of eight children, home-educated in a council house in Wolverhampton, Caitlin read lots of books about feminism - mainly in an attempt to be able to prove to her brother, Eddie, that she was scientifically better than him. Caitlin isn't really her name. She was christened 'Catherine'. But she saw 'Caitlin' in a Jilly Cooper novel when she was 13 and thought it looked exciting. That's why she pronounces it incorrectly: 'Catlin'. It causes trouble for everyone.

Coping With Sexism and Misogyny /Gloria G. Adams (Autor)
Whether in classrooms, in workplaces, on social media, on college campuses, at public venues, or within the political arena, subtle as well as blatant sexism and misogyny still permeate society on many levels. The effects manifest themselves in offensive language, unequal treatment and opportunities, sexual harassment, and violence. They can devastate self-esteem, emotional and physical health, academic achievements, and personal ambitions. While delivering an insightful glimpse into the prevalence and negative influences of sexism and misogyny in modern culture, this resource also offers practical, empowering, and proactive coping strategies. Readers also glean useful information through features including Myths and Facts.

The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls/Mona Eltahawy (Autor)
A bold and uncompromising feminist manifesto that shows women and girls how to defy, disrupt, and destroy the patriarchy by embracing the qualities they’ve been trained to avoid.
Seizing upon the energy of the #MeToo movement, feminist activist Mona Eltahawy advocates a muscular, out-loud approach to teaching women and girls to harness their power through what she calls the “seven necessary sins” that women and girls are not supposed to commit: to be angry, ambitious, profane, violent, attention-seeking, lustful, and powerful. All the necessary “sins” that women and girls require to erupt.
Eltahawy knows that the patriarchy is alive and well, and she is fed the hell up: Sexually assaulted during hajj at the age of fifteen. Groped on the dance floor of a night club in Montreal at fifty. Countless other injustices in the years between. Illuminating her call to action are stories of activists and ordinary women around the world—from South Africa to China, Nigeria to India, Bosnia to Egypt—who are tapping into their inner fury and crossing the lines of race, class, faith, and gender that make it so hard for marginalized women to be heard. Rather than teaching women and girls to survive the poisonous system they have found themselves in, Eltahawy arms them to dismantle it.
Brilliant, bold, and energetic, The Seven Necessary Sins for Women and Girls is a manifesto for all feminists in the fight against patriarchy.

A God Who Hates: The Courageous Woman Who Inflamed the Muslim World Speaks Out Against the Evils of Islam/Wafa Sultan (Autor)
From the front page of The New York Times to YouTube, Dr. Wafa Sultan has become a force radical Islam has to reckon with. For the first time, she tells her story and what she learned, first-hand, about radical Islam in A God Who Hates, a passionate memoir by an outspoken Arabic woman that is also a cautionary tale for the West. She grew up in Syria in a culture ruled by a god who hates women. "How can such a culture be anything but barbarous?", Sultan asks. "It can't", she concludes "because any culture that hates its women can't love anything else." She believes that the god who hates is waging a battle between modernity and barbarism, not a battle between religions. She also knows that it's a battle radical Islam will lose. Condemned by some and praised by others for speaking out, Sultan wants everyone to understand the danger posed by A God Who Hates.

Big Porn Inc: Exposing the Harms of the Global Pornography Industry /Melinda Tankard Reist (Herausgeber)
The unprecedented mainstreaming of the global pornography industry is transforming the sexual politics of intimate and public life, popularizing new forms of hardcore misogyny, and strongly contributing to the sexualization of children. Yet, challenges to the industry continue to be dismissed as uncool, antisex, and moral panic. Unmasking the lies behind the selling of porn as entertainment, this book reveals the shocking truths of an industry that trades in violence, crime, and degradation while discussing topics such as racism in gay male porn, the use of animals in porn, child pornography, and BDSM (bondage, dominance, sadism, and masochism). Fearless and controversial, this examination will challenge the current view of pornography.

Purple Dandelion: A Muslim woman's struggle against violence and oppression/ Farida Sultana (Autor), Shila Nair (Autor), Helen Clark (Vorwort)
Farida Sultana's journey from a frustrated child and teenage bride to a proud and independent Muslim woman has been fraught with risk and danger. PURPLE DANDELION is a true story of courage and determination, pointing the way to a different future for oppressed and abused women the world over.
'An inspirational story of bravery and enterprise.' - Helen Clark, Head of the United Nations Development Programme
For many Muslim women, life is a continual struggle to realise their true potential and assert their right to a peaceful life. It is a familiar experience to Farida Sultana. An unconventional child who struggled through her adulthood and married life, surviving violence and abuse, she has emerged as a strong advocate against all forms of violence and cultural and religious oppression against women.
Her story begins in Bangladesh, where she found herself in conflict with the traditional values of her family and the Islamic culture that prevents girls and women from learning music and the arts. Her arranged marriage to a doctor at the age of 18 took her to worn-torn Iran with her husband and young daughter, then to the UK and finally to New Zealand. At each stage of her journey, she attempts to describe her inner quest to find herself, while also capturing the nuances, sights and sounds of the events unfolding around her: in Bangladesh during its freedom struggle, in Iran during the Iran-Iraq war, in Britain as a single mother and a survivor of domestic violence, and in New Zealand as an immigrant woman.
Soon after her arrival in New Zealand, Farida became aware that there were many more immigrant women like her who had to overcome domestic violence and the oppressive, patriarchal societies they lived in. Their need drove her to initiate Shakti, which set up the first immigrant women’s refuge in the country. It has now grown into the largest immigrant women’s organisations in New Zealand, bringing together women and families of over 42 different ethnicities, some of whose experiences and struggles are also described in this book.
In recognition of her work, Farida was awarded the Queen’s Service Medal for Community Service in 2003. In recent years she has been working in Asian and Middle Eastern countries encouraging women to condemn violence and claim their human rights.
Farida Sultana has been working in the area of violence against women for over 17 years. She first became associated with Shakti AID UK as a survivor of violence and then as a volunteer. In 1995 she started Shakti in New Zealand. Farida is an advocate for various migrant and refugee issues, works closely with the wider communities and also serves on various boards in New Zealand. She has one adult daughter.
Shila Nair (co-author) qualified and worked as a journalist in India for 15 years before she migrated to New Zealand with her husband. She has since divorced and has requalified as a counsellor. Being a survivor of violence herself, she is a passionate advocate for the cause of violence against women. She has been working with Shakti since 2002.
Foreword by Helen Clark, former New Zealand Prime Minister, now Head of the United Nations Development Programme.

A Lab of One's Own: One Woman's Personal Journey Through Sexism in Science/ Rita Colwell (Autor), Sharon Bertsch McGrayne (Autor)
A riveting memoir-manifesto from the first female director of the National Science Foundation about the entrenched sexism in science, the elaborate detours women have taken to bypass the problem, and how to fix the system.
If you think sexism thrives only on Wall Street or in Hollywood, you haven’t visited a lab, a science department, a research foundation, or a biotech firm.
Rita Colwell is one of the top scientists in America: the groundbreaking microbiologist who discovered how cholera survives between epidemics and the former head of the National Science Foundation. But when she first applied for a graduate fellowship in bacteriology, she was told, “We don’t waste fellowships on women.” A lack of support from some male superiors would lead her to change her area of study six times before completing her PhD.
A Lab of One’s Own documents all Colwell has seen and heard over her six decades in science, from sexual harassment in the lab to obscure systems blocking women from leading professional organizations or publishing their work. Along the way, she encounters other women pushing back against the status quo, including a group at MIT who revolt when they discover their labs are a fraction of the size of their male colleagues’.
Resistance gave female scientists special gifts: forced to change specialties so many times, they came to see things in a more interdisciplinary way, which turned out to be key to making new discoveries in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Colwell would also witness the advances that could be made when men and women worked together—often under her direction, such as when she headed a team that helped to uncover the source of the anthrax used in the 2001 letter attacks.
A Lab of One’s Own shares the sheer joy a scientist feels when moving toward a breakthrough, and the thrill of uncovering a whole new generation of female pioneers. But it is also the science book for the #MeToo era, offering an astute diagnosis of how to fix the problem of sexism in science—and a celebration of the women pushing back.

Untamed /Glennon Doyle (Autor)
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today.”—Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book Pick)
In her most revealing and powerful memoir yet, the activist, speaker, bestselling author, and “patron saint of female empowerment” (People) explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet others’ expectations and start trusting the voice deep within us.
“Untamed will liberate women—emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love
This is how you find yourself.
There is a voice of longing inside each woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends. We hope all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives and wonder: Wasn’t it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontent—even from ourselves.
For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her own discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. But she soon realized they had come to her from within. This was her own voice—the one she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be. Glennon decided to quit abandoning herself and to instead abandon the world’s expectations of her. She quit being good so she could be free. She quit pleasing and started living.
Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is.
Untamed shows us how to be brave. As Glennon insists: The braver we are, the luckier we get.

Worldwide violence against women, girls and female childs are like epidemics, We must end the one sided war on women, girls, female childs and female babies. Men worldwide abuse, beat, murder, torture, rape, enslave, harass, stalk, bully females, only because they are female. Hate crimes and hate against women and girls have many faces today:
Femicide, female infanticide, war rapes, mass rapes, gang rapes, daily tournantes like in France, daily rapes worldwide of children, girls and women, mass mutliation connected with mass rape like in the Congo, mass rape connected with stoning like in Syria and Iraq, rape and murder of indigenous women and girls like in Canada, muslim gang rapes like in Sweden, France, Britain and Germany, FGM, breast ironing, physical mutilation connected with domestic and sexual violence, child marriages, forced marriages, underaged marriages, forced starvation and murder of female babies like in India, the arabic countries or Africa, honor killings, stoning, execution and punishment of rape and assault victims, sexual torture, witch hunts, widow murder, sexual murder, dowry murder, murder, mass rape and abduction of schoolgirls like in Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan, acid attacks, sexual and domestic violence, victim blaming of victims of sexual and domestic assault, daily hate speech, collective sexual harassment in crowds like tarrush gamea, puplic sexual harassment like Eve teasing, persecution, rape and murder of lesbians and suffragettes, sexism and hate speech in the society and the media, abductions connected with forced marriages and conversion like in many muslim countries, upskirting, cyber stalking, cyber bullying, online harassment,street harassment, workplace harassment, campus harassment, violence during child birth, sexist dress codes, sex slavery, human trafficking, forced prostitution, sadistic pornography, child pornography, revenge porns, snuff porns with torture,rape and murder of girls and women, sadistic stalking, sexism at the workplace and the campus, body shaming, forced child births, shackling pregnant women in prison like in the U.S., sexual torture in prison like in the Iran and India, driving ban for women like in Saudi Arabia, forced dress codes like the Burka in most alle Muslim countries, women hating laws like punishment laws (stoning, lashing, inprisonment of assault and rape victims) in the sharia, women hating in religions like in the Islam or during the dark ages in the christian religion connected with mass murder on women ( 6 Million women, girls and female childs had been raped, tortured, mutilated and burned alive as witches in 300 years in Europe in the name of God and the church) hate preaching against women like in the Islam or the Hindu religion, forced abortionsn selective abortions of females and sterilizations like in China, lack of education and contraception and civil and human rightsn, police brutality against women and girls worldwide like in India and the U.S., heinous sexism in the media, the society and at the workplace. We must call the crimes and the hate by the name and we must together fight against that. The half of the world belongs to the women, without women there is no life on earth.
If women are responsible for preventing rape…
then why is the advice given to us always to lock ourselves in our homes after dark unless escorted or to let people we trust guard our drinks and monitor whether we are too intoxicated to protect ourselves?
Why are we not, rather, told to keep company with other women: to watch them, their drinks, their bodies? Why are we told to depend on others instead of to look out for each other? If women are responsible for preventing rape…
then why is the emphasis so often on being wary of strangers and not of those men with whom we are most intimate? For women who do not live in war zones or other places where the social order has shattered, stranger rape is much less likely than rape by someone known and trusted.
Why are we not told to stop trusting men? If women are responsible for ending rape…
then wouldn’t that be the most effective way to protect ourselves? No, no, we must never be advised to do something that would limit men’s access to us. If women are responsible for preventing rape…
then can we ever be happy?
We are not happy now when, even if we follow all the rules of prevention, we are not safe. If we kept all the men out of our lives, and it worked to end rape, would those of us with male friends and lovers or male colleagues we respect be happy? If women are responsible for preventing rape…
Then we who live in relatively orderly social worlds cannot just focus on ourselves. We cannot take back only our nights. We should not be advised to protect ourselves alone. Men must end the cruel war against women, girls, female childs. Together we can create a better world.

Professors are valued professionals. What they say impact on students. Such line of thought is dangerous, it is also evil.
