The messages of the 52+ lyrics in this book are on lifelong love, forever friendships, and deathless dreams. Obama and Hillary do not only communicate these messages; they have also lived them. They encapsulate the entirety of both their lives and experiences. Because they are universal messages, they are always up-to-date. They are the answers to 3 basic philosophical questions about human existence: Where did you come from? Why are you here? Where are you going? The respective answers to these universal questions are: I came from the life created by the union of a man and a woman in love. I am here on earth to make many friends. I am going to fulfill all my dreams!

This collection of essays deals with the interplay of language and social change, asking the question: How can language and society be made gender equal? The contributors examine the critical role of language in the lives of white women and women of color in the United States. Since language pervades many dimensions of women's lives, this study takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the issues considered. The volume is divided into three sections. The first, "Liberating Language," focuses on the active role women had in altering the extent of linguistic sexism in English during the 1970s. A second section, "Identity Creation," deals with the alteration of that portion of language which serves to name women and their experiences. The final section, "Women of Color," offers a rare and timely look at the particular problems confronted by minority women. It argues that women of color have different problems and different links to language than white middle-class women.

Dr. Jackie De Hon "bought" the culture's prescription for women while growing up in the 40s and 50s when women were allowed to be one of four thingswife/mother, teacher, nurse, or secretary. She educated herself as her children were growing up. Through her own experiences and her observation of the treatment of other women, she raised her own consciousnessas consciousness-raising missed Louisiana. She began writing and advocating publicly for women, children, and public education in the 70s. Seeking a wider audience so she could encourage more people to work for equity, she decided to publish this collection of perceptions, ideas, and concerns about women's and their families' everyday lives. She has taught communication on the university level and art in kindergarten through 12th grade. In addition, she administered the regional office of a federal job-retraining program for the Louisiana Department of Education before turning to full-time writing.

Recently we have seen a heightened awareness of the unequal treatment of women in the academic community in general and, in particular, of how part-time, sessional, and contract positions are being used to exploit academics. Women in the Canadian Academic Tundra is a timely call for action. It is a brave testimony to the persistence and resilience of women who, against many odds, continue to contribute to the academy with energy and determination. Their touching stories will appeal to all working women as well as to scholars of social sciences and women studies, equity groups, human rights advocates, and agents of governments. Unlike many impersonal statistical reports on the subject of inequality, the narratives in Women in the Canadian Academic Tundra describe the personal experiences, both rewarding and frustrating, of women in the often inhospitable academic setting. Full-timers, part-timers, prominent researchers, and high-ranking administrators intersect with immigrant women, Aboriginal women, women of different cultural and ethnic groups, and women who are physically challenged and health impaired. These women come to life through these narratives and observations, offering several centuries of experience in the academy.
