No longer relegated to reporting on society happenings or household hints, women columnists have over the past twenty years surged across the boundary separating the "women's" or "lifestyle" sections and into the formerly male bastions of the editorial, financial, medical, and "op-ed" pages. Where men previously controlled the nation's new organizations, were the chief opinion givers, and defined what is newsworthy, many women newspaper columnists are now nationally syndicated and tackle the same subjects as their male counterparts, bringing with them distinctive styles and viewpoints. Through these frank and lively interviews, Maria Braden explores the lives and work of columnists Erma Bombeck, Jane Brody, Mona Charen, Merlene Davis, Georgie Anne Geyer, Dorothy Gilliam, Ellen Goodman, Molly Ivins, Mary McGrory, Judith ("Miss Manners") Martin, Joyce Maynard, Anna Quindlen, and Jane Bryant Quinn. Pofiles describe how these writers got started, where they get the nerve to tell the world what they think, how they generate ideas for columns, and what it's like to create under the pressure of deadlines. Representative columns illustrate their distinctive voices, and an introductory essay provides a historical overview of women in journalism, including pioneering women columnists Fanny Fern, Dorothy Thompson, and Sylvia Porter. Braden finds that today's women columnists frequently raise issues or use examples unique to their gender. Because they are likely to have a direct personal connection to current social issues such as abortion, child care, or sexual harassment, they are able to provide fresh perspectives on these provocative topics. In doing so, they are helping to define what is worthy of attention in the '90s and to shape public response. A unique addition to the literature on women in journalism, this book will interest general readers as well as students of journalism, literature, American studies, and women's studies. Aspiring writers will find here role models and practical guidance.

But that isn't what Lipman says. Instead, she uses data, reams of it, to expose how the system is rigged against women. She then calls for men to join the fight to make the workplace more equal' SUNDAY TIMES STYLE MAGAZINE Women spend their working lives adapting to an environment set up for men, by men: from altering the way they speak to changing the clothes they wear to power posing. But still the gender gap persists. And once you see it - women being overlooked, interrupted, their ideas credited to men - it's impossible to ignore. But it needn't be this way. Diving deep into the wide range of government initiatives, corporate experiments and social science research Joanne Lipman offers fascinating new revelations about the way men and women work culled from the Enron scandal, from brain research, from transgender scientists and from Iceland's campaign to 'feminise' an entire nation. Packed with fascinating and entertaining examples - from the woman behind the success of Tupperware to how Google reinvented its hiring process - That's What She Said is a rallying cry to both men and women to finally take real steps towards closing the gender gap.

"My dear Mrs. Marks, I wish you felt at liberty to tell me just what is the trouble. I should consider it confidential of course." Of course. Mrs. Marks would not want to be accused of gossiping. But her tone--not to mention her facial expressions--made it clear that trouble was brewing and that it was really quite serious. When Mrs. Willard hear of the trouble from Mrs. Eastman, it seemed positively shocking. By the time the rumors made it to the young ladies of the church sewing society, they were considered "facts," damaging several reputations. But Mrs. Marks thinks nothing of it--until the table are turned! This book also includes the story "People Who Haven't Time and Can't Afford It." Heartwarming stories of faith and love by Grace Livingston Hill's aunt--Isabella Alden. Each book is similar in style and tone to Hill's and is set in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

The book was called Everything Men Understand About Women. Upon opening it, the reader found 100 blank pages. Get it? Very funny. But it gave T. J. Jefferson an idea. If men know nothing about the fairer sex, then why not go straight to the source? After all, if your toilet is backed up, you don't call your dentist, you call a plumber. So he asked strangers (and even some celebrities, such as Madonna, Shakira, Demi Moore, and Cameron Diaz) to fill the blank pages of his book. In That's What She Said, Jefferson shares 100-plus tips he's gathered from women of all ages and backgrounds in a collection of entries in their own words that are offbeat, funny, sometimes mean, often poignant–but always honest. For men, it's not a book on how to get a woman to go home with you but on how to keep her attention once you have it. And for women, think of it as an entertaining look at what other ladies are going through. You may find vindication ("amen, sister") or put it down, relieved that you aren' t "as crazy as her" or that your man isn't a complete cad. Organized by topics, including love, sex, beauty, lying, and listening, this is the ultimate look into the mind of today's modern woman. From the Trade Paperback edition.
The following 50 poems are about people that have directly affected my life. Some are tributes to loved ones that left my life too soon. They may be gone from this earth but are forever here in spirit and in my heart. Other poems are about people that have made a lasting impact on the way I think, feel and live my life. All of these people have touched my life and left me with much wisdom. I hope that you can relate to the special people in your life through my book of poems.
