Until recently, scholars assumed that women stopped speaking after they won the vote in 1920 and did not reenter political life until the second wave of feminism began in the 1960s. Nothing could be further from the truth. While national attention did dissipate after 1920, women did not retreat from political and civic life. Rather, after winning the vote, women's public activism shifted from a single-issue agenda to the myriad social problems and public issues that faced the nation. As such, women began to take their place in the public square as political actors in their own rights rather than strictly campaigning for a women's issue. This anthology documents women's activism during this period by introducing heretofore unpublished public speeches that address a wide array of debated topics including child labor, international relations, nuclear disarmament, consumerism, feminism and anti-feminism, social welfare, family life, war, and the environment. Some speeches were delivered in legislative forums, others at schools, churches, business meetings, and media events; still others before national political organizations. To ensure diversity, the volume features speakers of different ages, races, classes, ethnicities, geographic regions, and political persuasions. The volume editors include short biographical introductions as well as historical context for each selection.
You never know what treasures can be found in someone's attic. Unfortunately for bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright, some of them are worth killing for in the latest in the New York Times bestselling Bibliophile Mystery series.
If you've been paying attention to the mobile phone world lately, there are two names that will likely jump to the front of your mind: Apple and Android. While these two companies get the lion's share of the publicity (and a proportionately large number of device sales), both of them were actually very late to the party. Microsoft, it turns out, practically invented the smart phone. Back in the pre-iPhone days, Windows was arguably the biggest player in the nascent PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) market - helping the savviest and most forward-thinking businessmen get their work done digitally. By contrast, Apple was still trying to peddle the universally maligned Newton Message Pad. Whether you've been a loyal Windows Phone user for years or you're just now growing tired of the same-old-same-old world of iOS or Android, this guide will help to make sure that you have all of the tools you need to make Windows Phone 8 your new favorite. We'll take you through Live Tiles, SkyDrive, Multitasking, Kids Corner, and a lot more - everything you'll need to make the most of your Lumia 920, HTC 8X, Samsung ATIV S, or any other Windows Phone 8 Device on the market.
