No Excuses

Author: Gloria Feldt
Publisher: Hachette UK
ISBN: 9781580053808
Release Date: 2010-09-28
Genre: Social Science

Feminist icon Gloria Feldt pulls no punches in this new book, which argues that the most confounding problem facing women today isn't that doors of opportunity aren't open, but that not enough women are walking through them. From the boardroom to the bedroom, public office to personal relationships, she asserts that nobody is keeping women from parity-except themselves. Feldt puts women's power into an historical context, showing the ways in which women have made huge leaps forward in the past, only to pull back right when they were at the threshold. Feldt argues that there's no excuse-whether it's the way women are socialized, or pressure to conform, or work/life balance issues-for women today not to own their power. Women are still facing unequal pay, being passed over for promotions, entering public office at a much lesser rate than men, and oftentimes still struggling with traditional power dynamics in their interpersonal relationships. Feldt's solution to all these places where women face inequality is the same: we need to shift the way we think to achieve true parity with our male counterparts. No Excuses is divided into nine chapters that organized around how women can change the way they think, and therefore the way they act. These include: Know Your History and You Can Create the Future of Your Choice; Define the Terms-First; Embrace Controversy; Employ Every Medium; and other helpful ideas for using the tools and resources women already have to create the changes they want to see. No Excuses is a timely and invaluable book to help women equalize gender power in politics, work, and love.

Genre: Business & Economics

Thoughts, advice, and stories from 40 successful women across a variety of careers—from authors to actresses, CEOs and professors—encouraging women to support each other in the workplace and in life—along with action plans on how all women can work together to break free from the binds of gender inequality. Women worldwide are breaking their silence—coming forward against the men that have oppressed and abused them in the #MeToo movement. It’s an exciting, liberating moment time of female empowerment—but now we have to relearn how to connect with each other. Instead of supporting each other through the challenges of a traditionally male-dominated working world, millions of women have experienced the polar opposite. Studies show that 30% of workplace bullies are female—employing tactics such as cyber bullying, verbal attacks, gossiping, and shunning to use against each other—and many women have garnered “mean girl” reputations as competitive and unsupportive in the workplace. Inside the galvanizing In This Together, 40 successful and eminent women from a wide range of fields show us how much we can achieve if we embrace our collective power and strength, instead of competing against each other—such as learning new skills to advance in our careers and ultimately earn more money, working to dramatically increase the number of women in leadership positions, and even recruiting men to take up workplace equality as their own impassioned cause. Empowering, stirring, and actionable, In This Together is an indispensable addition to every modern woman’s arsenal in our continued fight for the opportunities we deserve.

If you grew up in the era of mood rings and lava lamps, you probably remember Free to Be . . . You and Me--the groundbreaking children's record, book, and television special that debuted in 1972. Conceived by actress and producer Marlo Thomas and promoted by Ms. magazine, it captured the spirit of the growing women's movement and inspired girls and boys to challenge stereotypes, value cooperation, and respect diversity. In this lively collection marking the fortieth anniversary of Free to Be . . . You and Me, thirty-two contributors explore the creation and legacy of this popular children's classic. Featuring a prologue by Marlo Thomas, When We Were Free to Be offers an unprecedented insiders' view by the original creators, as well as accounts by activists and educators who changed the landscape of childhood in schools, homes, toy stores, and libraries nationwide. Essays document the rise of non-sexist children's culture during the 1970s and address how Free to Be still speaks to families today.

13 Dinge die mental starke Menschen NICHT tun

Author: Amy Morin
Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag
ISBN: 9783104032856
Release Date: 2016-05-25
Genre: Self-Help

Dieses Buch macht Sie stark! Und das sofort! Depression und Burnout sind für Amy Morin keine Fremdworte: Auf den Tag genau drei Jahre, nachdem sie ihre Mutter verloren hatte, starb ihr Mann ganz plötzlich an einem Herzinfarkt. Morin wurde mit nur 26 Jahren Witwe und musste selbst lernen, nach diesen schweren Schicksalsschlägen zu mentaler Stärke zu finden. Sie nutzte den Umbruch zum Neuanfang. Die Psychotherapeutin und Sozialpädagogin Amy Morin weiß: Wir alle sind nur so gut, wie unsere schlechtesten Angewohnheiten es zulassen. Sie sind wie eine schwere Last, sie behindern, ermüden und frustrieren. Sie halten uns davon ab, unser Potential voll auszunutzen, sie führen zu Depression und Burnout. Unsere mentale Stärke und Resilienz steigern wir, indem wir negative Verhaltens- und Denkmuster ablegen, wie z.B. in Selbstmitleid zu versinken, sofortige Erfolge zu erwarten oder das Alleinsein zu fürchten. Freuen wir uns stattdessen auf Veränderungen, besiegen wir unsere Ängste, werden wir glücklich und erfolgreich! Der erste Ratgeber mit einem ganz neuen Ansatz zur Verbesserung der mentalen Stärke und der Resilienz: mitreißend, effektiv und überzeugend!

Mit großer Spannung wurde sie erwartet, auch von Nicht-Katholiken: Die Umwelt-Enzyklika von Papst Franziskus nimmt die heute entscheidenden Themen in den Blick; es geht um die geht um soziale, ökologische und politische Zusammenhänge. Wohl selten war ein päpstliches Schreiben so aktuell und brisant und vor allem relevant für alle Gesellschaftsschichten und Menschen weltweit. Mit "Laudato si" beweist Franziskus, dass die Kirche nach wie vor eine unverzichtbare Stimme im Diskurs zur Gestaltung der modernen Welt ist. Wer verstehen will, wie Papst und Kirche die großen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit bestehen wollen, kommt an diesem Werk nicht vorbei. Ein Muss für jeden, der an den drängenden Fragen unserer Zeit interessiert ist.
