...<b>The History of American Catholic Women.</b>, Kenneally, James J.
7 Kenneally, James J. ...The History of American Catholic Women.

Unused. Tight and clean. Previous owners name whited-out is the only flaw.

Their courage, independence, and healthy self-images, and the compromises they had to make, come across very clearly as Kenneally shows the diversity of these women, acknowledging the traditionalists while focusing on the feminists.

___<B>Women Writing Women: An Anthology of Spanish-American Theater of the 1980s (Suny Series in Latin American and Iberian Thought and Culture)</B><br>, Salas, Teresa Cajiao
11 Salas, Teresa Cajiao ___Women Writing Women: An Anthology of Spanish-American Theater of the 1980s (Suny Series in Latin American and Iberian Thought and Culture)

U.S.A. State University of New York Press 1997.
 9780791432068
 Soft cover.
 
No flaws or blemishes but minimal retail shelf handling. Unused; Unread.
This first anthology in English dedicated exclusively to Spanish-American women playwrights includes eight plays by award-winning authors who have received national and international acclaim.

While these playwrights articulate concerns similar to those of their male counterparts-social injustice, the question of identity, the role of art, the power of writing-their feminist perspectives offer a fresh view of Spanish America by challenging traditional male representations of women.

While the plays humorously reveal the cultural and social politics of each country, they also examine seriously the absurdities of everyday life.

The playwrights include Isidora Aguirre (Chile), Sabina Berman (Mexico), Myrna Casas (Puerto Rico), Teresa Marichal (Puerto Rico), Diana Raznovich (Argentina), Mariela Romero (Venezuela), Beatriz Seibel (Argentina), and Maruxa Vilalta (Mexico).

No flaws or blemishes; but minimal retail handling.
In the introduction to her book, Women's Friendships in Literature, Janet Todd says that the main reason for writing the book is to prove Virginia Woolf wrong. In A Room of One's Own, Woolf claims that she has never encountered a description of real female friendship in the course of her reading. Todd totally disagrees with her. She feels that Eighteenth century literature in particular is "rich in presentations of female friendship"
