Motherhood In Mexican Cinema 1941 1991 from the Author: Isabel Arredondo. How were femininity and motherhood understood in Mexican cinema from the 1940s to the early 1990s? Film analysis, interviews with filmmakers, academic articles and film reviews from newspapers are used to answer the question and trace the changes in such depictions. Images of mothers in films by so-called third-wave filmmakers (Busi Cortes, Maria Novaro, Dana Rotberg and Marisa Sistach) are contrasted with those in Mexican classical films (1935-1950) and films from the 1970s and 1980s. There are some surprising conclusions. The most important restrictions in the depiction of mothers in classical cinema came not from the strict sexual norms of the 1940s but in reactions to women shown as having autonomous identities. Also, in contrast to classical films, third-wave films show a woman's problems within a social dimension, making motherhood political--in relation not to militancy within the left but to women's issues. Third-wave films approach the problems of Latin American society as those of individuals differentiated by gender, sexuality and ethnicity; in such films mothers are citizens directly affected by laws, economic policies and cultural beliefs.

Billionaire Romance from the Author: Kathleen Hope. She pulled him up into a lip-locked kiss, nodding when she felt his cock brush against her, touch questioning. He entered her and made her feel full. She hadn’t even seen him put on the condom, and she had never been better prepared for sex than she was that evening. Months of pressure she hadn’t even begun to suspect was building up inside her was let loose, every muscle relaxed and ready to follow the steady rhythm their bodies fell into as naturally as sleep. Later she would marvel that she had entirely forgotten...

From The Horrors Of World War Ii To A Great Love Story from the Author: Edith V. Landis. "I was one of the first seven German war brides to receive permission to come to the United States to marry an ex-GI after World War II. I was the first German war bride to come to Pennsylvania. It was such a happy moment when I was finally reunited with my fiancé, Ardell L Landis, who I would marry a short time later. Because there was so much attention given to World War II in the last few years, I was asked to speak at several historical societies and also had several speaking engagements at schools and churches. Everyone that heard my story encouraged me to write a book. This work is a product of that encouragement. This is a true story of my life in Germany during the Hitler Regime, World War II, six years of blackouts and air raids, and the last battle of Berlin by Russian troops. This is also the story of how I met my husband and our struggle to get through all the red tape for me to come to the United States so that we could be married. My story, unlike some others, had a happy ending. Since coming to the United States so long ago I have lived a full and happy life, but I will never forget the war and those horrible times. It is my hope that with this book I can give people a glimpse into that time in history so that my experience can speak for so many others. This is my story." Edith V. Landis

Thanks For The Memories from the Author: Jane Mersky Leder. The collective consciousness of World War II revolved around the virtues of bravery, sacrifice, and commitment. Members of the Greatest Generation toed political and social lines in hopes of winning the war. They fell into lockstep, not asking many questions and breaking few social and sexual mores. Or did they? In fact, World War II, like all wars, was an era of sexual experimentation and a general loosening of morals. During this time of conflicting emotions and messages, of great sacrifice, and of discovery, some groups, especially women, experienced a relaxing of bonds that had kept them in check. "Thanks for the Memories: Love, Sex, and World War II" is the true story of how that generation responded to the fervor of war and how those passions changed their livesand the relationships between the sexesforever. But this book is more than that. As Jane Mersky Leder writes, "Thanks for the Memories" opens the hearts and memories of a generation that is dying, by one estimate, at the rate of more than 1,000 a day. It not only exposes the Greatest Generation s sexual and romantic escapades, it underscores how those four war years revolutionized relationships (including those between gays) and helped set the stage for the second wave of the women s liberation movement. Many who never thought their stories mattered, Leder writes, now feel the pull of limited time, and the importance of leaving an accurate account for their children and grandchildren of what it was like to be a young man or young woman during World War II. This is their collective story. "

Nancy Love And The Wasp Ferry Pilots Of World War Ii from the Author: Sarah Byrn Rickman. She flew the swift P-51 and the capricious P-38, but the heavy, four-engine B-17 bomber and C-54 transport were her forte. This is the story of Nancy Harkness Love who, early in World War II, recruited and led the first group of twenty-eight women to fly military aircraft for the U.S. Army. When the United States entered World War II, the Army needed pilots to transport or "ferry" its combat-bound aircraft across the United States for overseas deployment and its trainer airplanes to flight training bases. Most male pilots were assigned to combat preparation, leaving few available for ferrying jobs. Into this vacuum stepped Nancy Love and her civilian Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS). Love had advocated using women as ferry pilots as early as 1940. Jackie Cochran envisioned a more ambitious plan, to train women to perform a variety of the military's flight-related jobs stateside. The Army implemented both programs in the fall of 1942, but Jackie's idea piqued General Hap Arnold's interest and, by summer 1943, her concept had won. The women's programs became one under the name Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), with Cochran as the Director of Women Pilots and Love as the Executive for WASP. Nancy Love believed that the women attached to the military needed to be on equal footing with the men and given the same opportunities to prove their abilities and mettle. Young women serving today as combat pilots owe much to Love for creating the opportunity for women to serve. Her foresight and tenacity nearly seventy years ago helped ensure their future. Now author Sarah Byrn Rickman, aviation historian, presents the first full-length biography of Nancy Love and her role in the WAFS and WASP programs, Her book will appeal to all with a love of flight.
