For Her Own Good from the Author: Barbara Ehrenreich. This women's history classic brilliantly exposed the constraints imposed on women in the name of science and exposes the myths used to control them. Since the the nineteenth century, professionals have been invoking scientific expertise to prescribe what women should do for their own good. Among the experts’ diagnoses and remedies: menstruation was an illness requiring seclusion; pregnancy, a disabling condition; and higher education, a threat to long-term health of the uterus. From clitoridectomies to tame women’s behavior in the nineteenth century to the censure of a generation of mothers as castrators in the 1950s, doctors have not hesitated to intervene in women’s sexual, emotional, and maternal lives. Even domesticity, the most popular prescription for a safe environment for woman, spawned legions of “scientific” experts. Barbara Ehrenreich and Dierdre English has never lost faith in science itself, butinsist that we hold those who interpret it to higher standards. Women are entering the medical and scientific professions in greater numbers but as recent research shows, experts continue to use pseudoscience to tell women how to live. For Her Own Good provides today’s readers with an indispensable dose of informed skepticism.

For Her Own Good Legal Justifications Used To Exclude Women And Girls From Sports from the Author: Emily Schmit. Using Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and a review of the history of sport in the United States, this thesis provides a critical feminist analysis of how the legal system perpetuates and justifies sport as a male domain. The gender hierarchy in sport continues to be supported through the interpretation of the law meant to rectify gender disparities. The analysis of legal records in this thesis demonstrates that cultural and social beliefs regarding women and sport are evident in the construction of the law and impacts court rulings. Title IX and its subsequent interpretations and regulations, specifically, the Contact Sports Exemption, are manipulated in an unconstitutional manner reinforcing the traditionally male dominated institution of sport. This thesis argues that despite the nondiscrimination intent and purpose of Title IX, false assumptions about gender are perpetuated within the law and make gender equality in sport difficult, if not impossible.

from the Author: Susan Cain. Кілька століть нам нав’язували ідеальний образ людини — комунікабельної, харизматичної, енергійної, — мовляв, саме ці риси — запорука успіху. Тому й не дивно, що більшість переступила через себе, намагаючись відповідати цьому взірцеві. Сьюзен Кейн вважає, що час скинути маски, і на численних прикладах з політики, бізнесу, освіти, громадського та культурного життя розповідає, у чому криється потенціал тихих людей. Кейн сама інтроверт, тому щиро ділиться порадами, як здобути успіх на роботі і в особистому житті, при цьому залишаючись самим собою.

All In Her Own Good Time from the Author: Betty Hartman. Charlotte Miller has not had an easy life. She has survived the loss of two beloved husbands and divorced a third, a difficult task to accomplish at the time. Since her third husband, Bill, died two days ago, Charlotte is in limbo. She has a lot of responsibilities, including their nine children and one on the way. Her step-son has told Charlotte that she and her children are welcome to remain on the family ranch, but she is getting a much different feeling from her daughter in-law. Unwilling to become a slave in her former home, Charlotte packs up her children and leaves for New Eden, Oregon, the town she helped found over twenty years ago. Charlotte knows that hotel living is not what's best for young children. They need fresh air and sunshine. But what are the odds of finding a place large enough for herself and nine children? While Charlotte grapples with these basic problems, she meets two very different men who want to take the place of her late husband. One is the new sheriff, a much younger man, while the other is a free soul who couldn't possibly be serious about a woman with so many children. Charlotte's children are growing up and becoming individuals much too fast for her. A critical rift develops between her two oldest sons, a rift that threatens to destroy their love for each other and even their loyalty to the rest of the family. Charlotte faces all her difficulties head-on, as mothers have done for generations; but is even Charlotte Miller wise enough to overcome all these problems?

Too Safe For Their Own Good from the Author: Jennie Lindon. Adults often try to create a risk-free environment for children, but this can reduce their opportunities to manage their own risk, making it difficult for them to learn how to judge new situations. This practical guide shows how adults can share their own skills with young children and promote understanding of safety within an interesting learning environment.The first edition made a huge contribution to the debate around children and risk. Over ten years later, this new edition thoroughly re-examines the issues of the first edition and assesses recent developments such as risk-benefit analysis and the importance of outdoor experiences.Written for the full range of practitioners involved with children, it will support them to take the middle path of offering enough challenge to benefit children, while avoiding the extremes of over-protection or careless practice.
