This textbook for courses on women and politics thematically integrates two profound historical developments focusing on women's political participation in contemporary public life in the United States. The second wave of women’s rights activism has now spanned a half century producing a revolution in women’s presence and influence in the public realm of American life. Over the course of this same era, however, a second phenomenon of rising economic inequality has also dramatically changed the American landscape. Burrell’s text uniquely examines the effect of the age of inequality on women’s advancement toward economic and political equality and in turn how policy initiatives of the women’s movement have addressed inequality issues. Students will come to better understand what’s at stake in the politics and policy issues from the women’s rights movement to the "war on women" debate. Explaining a diverse set of issues and viewpoints, Burrell brings a fresh approach to the engagement of women in the public realm over the past half century. Framing this activism in the great economic divide of the same time period provides a thought-provoking, challenging, and broad thematic approach to this history. The text chronicles the many diverse types of actions women have taken in the contemporary era to achieve gender equity, empowerment, and a greater public voice. Women—both liberal feminist and conservative— have run for and been elected to positions of leadership at all levels of government. Women have formed organizations to lobby for equity in employment and education, in the military and to promote reproductive rights. They have engaged in unconventional political activities marching against and protesting the actions and policies of economic corporations and governmental institutions. Women with few economic resources have joined together to challenge local power structures. In addition to efforts to improve the lives and status of women in the United States, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) have formed to promote global women’s rights. Readers of this text will gain a great appreciation of the multiple political voices of American women and the challenges to continued unequal voices.

Cracked But Not Shattered thoroughly analyzes Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination with an eye to identifying what went wrong-why, the frontrunner, she ended up not breaking "the glass ceiling." Although her communication was flawed and the media coverage of her did reflect biases, these essays demonstrate how her campaign was in trouble from the start because of her gender, status as a former First Lady, and being half of a political couple.

In Dancing on the Glass Ceiling, Olcott, Hardy, and the contributors explore ideas about women and leadership, examining how they intersect with the growth of technology. In order to get a clear picture, they have explored the research plus interviewed women in various phases of their careers, as well as men who have witnessed the evolution of women's leadership responsibilities. The book addresses six major questions: Does the glass ceiling exist today, and if so, how has it manifested itself in the modern organization? What is the historical background and cultural importance of women in the workplace and how has that influenced women's roles in today's marketplace? What skills and talents do successful female leaders see as critical for women to succeed today? Are they the same for men? How has the technology revolution impacted leadership opportunities and challenges for women and men? Are women and men better suited for specific types of leadership roles? How can we build new organizational paradigms that center around the aggregate talents and abilities of women and men? Finally, the book challenges readers to consider these questions in their own work and within their own institutions and, as a result, to make decisions and plans for a new era.

Women in Media Careers takes an in-depth look at women's careers in mass media by outlining job descriptions and providing insider tips on how to begin a career. By investigating positions held by women in top media-owning conglomerates, authors Lee Bollinger and Carole O'Neill assert that while women in the media still struggle against the impenetrable glass ceiling, vibrant changes in the industry have left that ceiling more permeable than ever. Women are inching their way into the executive positions at top media conglomerates making them major power players in the industry. After comparing employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the top Fortune 500 media companies, Bollinger and O'Neill emphasize that despite the great odds set against women, they are succeeding in blazing a career path in mass media. Also discussed are the extraordinary women of the media industry who have gone beyond all boundaries and have succeeded in multiple genres of media or entertainment. Informative and inspiring, Bollinger and O'Neill's encouraging book offers women a reliable resource on the career opportunities in the mass media industry and how they can succeed in securing a position at the top.

Der Preis des Glücks Sie wollen das perfekte Paar sein, Kinder und Beruf unter einen Hut bringen, alles irgendwie richtig machen. Und sie finden die ideale Nanny, die ihnen das alles erst möglich macht. Doch wie gut kann man einen fremden Menschen kennen? Und wie sehr kann man ihm vertrauen? Sie haben Glück gehabt, denken sich Myriam und Paul, als sie Louise einstellen - eine Nanny wie aus dem Bilderbuch, die auf ihre beiden kleinen Kinder aufpasst, in der schönen Pariser Altbauwohnung im 10. Arrondissement. Wie mit unsichtbaren Fäden hält Louise die Familie zusammen, ebenso unbemerkt wie mächtig. In wenigen Wochen schon ist sie unentbehrlich geworden. Myriam und Paul ahnen nichts von den Abgründen und von der Verletzlichkeit der Frau, der sie das Kostbarste anvertrauen, das sie besitzen. Von der tiefen Einsamkeit, in der sich die fünfzigjährige Frau zu verlieren droht. Bis eines Tages die Tragödie über die kleine Familie hereinbricht. Ebenso unaufhaltsam wie schrecklich.

Despite real progress, women remain rare enough in elite positions of power that their presence still evokes a sense of wonder. In Through the Labyrinth, Alice Eagly and Linda Carli examine why women's paths to power remain difficult to traverse. First, Eagly and Carli prove that the glass ceiling is no longer a useful metaphor and offer seven reasons why. They propose the labyrinth as a better image and explain how to navigate through it. This important and practical book addresses such critical questions as: How far have women actually come as leaders? Do stereotypes and prejudices still limit women's opportunities? Do people resist women's leadership more than men's? And, do organisations create obstacles to women who would be leaders?This book's rich analysis is founded on scientific research from psychology, economics, sociology, political science, and management. The authors ground their conclusions in that research and invoke a wealth of engaging anecdotes and personal accounts to illustrate the practical principles that emerge. With excellent leadership in short supply, no group, organisation, or nation can afford to restrict women's access to leadership roles. This book evaluates whether such restrictions are present and, when they are, what we can do to eliminate them.

«Das Geheimnis der verlorenen Zeit» ist einer der megalomanischsten Romane der jüngeren amerikanischen Literaturgeschichte: ein gewitzter, raffinierter Mix aus Wissenschaft, Philosophie, Pop und Unterhaltung. Ein wilder Abenteuertrip, vom Wien der Jahrhundertwende bis ins Manhattan der Gegenwart, von der ersten Dimension in die vierte. Eingeschlossen in einer Blase angehaltener Zeit sitzt der junge Waldemar Tolliver in einem vermüllten Apartment am Central Park in New York und versucht, Herr seiner Geschichte zu werden. (Aber vielleicht hat er auch nur zu viel Science-Fiction gelesen.) Über hundert Jahre Familiengeschichte muss er erforschen und verstehen, um wieder in die Welt zurückkehren zu können. (Glaubt er.) Ein grandioses Panorama breitet sich aus: Waldemars Urgroßvater, Produzent eingelegter Gurken und Hobbyphysiker aus dem k.u.k. Znaim, war dem Geheimnis der Zeit auf der Spur. Nein, besser noch: dem Geheimnis menschlicher Reisen durch die Zeit! Leider gingen die Unterlagen bei einem dummen Unfall mit einem Automobil verloren. Drei Generationen von Tollivers – Genies, Kriminelle, Verlierer, Visionäre – ruhen fortan nicht, das Geheimnis zu lüften, obwohl bald ein deutscher Patentamtsangestellter namens Einstein mit ganz ähnlichen Theorien Schlagzeilen machen wird ... Um es mit Jonathan Lethem zu sagen: «John Wray ist die nächste Welle der amerikanischen Literatur.»

This empowering volume presents current empirical findings and rich personal insights into the evolving challenges women face in attaining—and thriving in—leadership positions. Contributors add new voices to emerging and familiar topics, including leadership styles and traits, growth and learning experiences within career paths, mentoring and entrepreneurial aspects of leadership, and workplace and societal resistance to women in roles of power. Representative first-person accounts shed significant light on real-world double standards and double binds (including the unique obstacles faced by minority women), why the glass ceiling still exists, and steps still needed to dismantle it. Coverage also addresses related legal issues, such as the ongoing fight against pay inequities and conflicts between the DeVos rules and Title IX regulations in the schools. Included among the topics: · · Turn ah-ha moments into pivotal learning. · The important role of women in social entrepreneurship. · Focus group becomes support group: women in educational leadership. · Issues confronting women leaders in academia: the quest for equality. · Leadership means using the courts to demand equal enforcement of and protection for women's constitutional and civil rights. · Organizations concerned with women and leadership. Whether one’s interest is local or global, scholars and students in courses on leadership, career development, and women’s studies will find Women and Leadership inspiring and stimulating in myriad domains, from research and business to politics and policy.
