R309 R197 Discovery Miles 1 970 Save R112 (36%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The first book to explore menstruation in the current cultural and political landscape and to investigate the new wave of period activism taking the world by storm. After centuries of being shrouded in taboo and superstition, periods have gone mainstream. Seemingly overnight, a new, high-profile movement has emerged one dedicated to bold activism, creative product innovation, and smart policy advocacy to address the centrality of menstruation in relation to core issues of gender equality and equity. In Periods Gone Public, Jennifer Weiss-Wolf the woman Bustle dubbed one of the nation's "badass menstrual activists" explores why periods have become a prominent political cause. From eliminating the tampon tax, to enacting new laws ensuring access to affordable, safe products, menstruation is no longer something to whisper about. Weiss-Wolf shares her firsthand account in the fight for "period equity" and introduces readers to the leaders, pioneers, and everyday people who are making change happen. From societal attitudes of periods throughout history in the United States and around the world to grassroots activism and product innovation, Weiss-Wolf challenges readers to face stigma head-on and elevate an agenda that recognizes both the power and the absolute normalcy of menstruation.

Visit the blog for the book at www.brooklynbyname.com From Bedford-Stuyvesant to Williamsburg, Brooklyn's historic names are emblems of American culture and history. Uncovering the remarkable stories behind the landmarks, Brooklyn By Name takes readers on a stroll through the streets and places of this thriving metropolis to reveal the borough's textured past. Listing more than 500 of Brooklyn's most prominent place names, organized alphabetically by region, and richly illustrated with photographs and current maps the book captures the diverse threads of American history. We learn about the Canarsie Indians, the region's first settlers, whose language survives in daily traffic reports about the Gowanus Expressway. The arrival of the Dutch West India Company in 1620 brought the first wave of European names, from Boswijck ("town in the woods," later Bushwick) to Bedford-Stuyvesant, after the controversial administrator of the Dutch colony, to numerous places named after prominent Dutch families like the Bergens. The English takeover of the area in 1664 led to the Anglicization of Dutch names, (vlackebos, meaning "wooded plain," became Flatbush) and the introduction of distinctively English names (Kensington, Brighton Beach). A century later the American Revolution swept away most Tory monikers, replacing them with signers of the Declaration of Independence and international figures who supported the revolution such as Lafayette (France), De Kalb (Germany), and Kosciuszko (Poland). We learn too of the dark corners of Brooklyn"s past, encountering over 70 streets named for prominent slaveholders like Lefferts and Lott but none for its most famous abolitionist, Walt Whitman. From the earliest settlements to recent commemorations such as Malcolm X Boulevard, Brooklyn By Name tells the tales of the poets, philosophers, baseball heroes, diplomats, warriors, and saints who have left their imprint on this polyethnic borough that was once almost disastrously renamed "New York East." Ideal for all Brooklynites, newcomers, and visitors, this book includes: *Over 500 entries explaining the colorful history of Brooklyn's most prominent place names *Over 100 vivid photographs of Brooklyn past and present *9 easy to follow and up-to-date maps of the neighborhoods *Informative sidebars covering topics like Ebbets Field, Lindsay Triangle, and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge *Covers all neighborhoods, easily find the street you're on

A lead title for Fall 2017. ONLY BOOK OF ITS KIND: There has never been a book on menstrual equity or a book examining the history of societal attitudes toward menstruation, the product innovation, or policy change activism behind period feminism. And certainly never a book on periods that's come at such a pivotal moment in the conversation. IDEAL AUTHOR: Jennifer Weiss-Wolf is a leading voice for equitable menstrual policy in America. Newsweek deemed her the "architect of the U.S. policy campaign to squash the tampon tax." In partnership with Cosmopolitan, Jen spearheaded the first U.S. "No Tax on Tampons" Change.org petition, which now has more than 58,000 signatures. Jennifer's work has appeared in the New York Times, TIME, Bloomberg News, New York Daily News, Cosmopolitan, The Nation, Newsweek, Medium, and Ms. magazine, among others. She has spoken on the subject of menstrual equity to the Planned Parenthood Federation, New York University, Columbia Law School, and more. GROWING PLATFORM: Jen's platform continues to grow: In early 2017 she was featured as an expert on menstrual equity on both Dr. Oz and in Lena Dunham's influential newsletter, Lenny Letter, which reaches more than 400,000 subscribers. She's also been tapped as a contributor for THERE WILL BE BLOOD (Macmillian, 2018), an anthology on menstruation issues with leading names like THINX CEO/founder Miki Agrawal; comedian Margaret Cho; Broad City's Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson; and Youtuber and menstrual activist Ingrid Nilsen. HIGH-PROFILE CONNECTIONS: Jen has secured a blurb from feminist legend Gloria Steinem and will ask for her help to promote the book. She also works regularly with Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times. She is close to and can rely on support from Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles and Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards and will request promotional help from both. A number of marketing and PR firms have offered their services to Jennifer and the cause of menstrual equity pro bono. These alliances can be revisited closer to on-sale.

Director Brian De Palma revisits similar terrain that he covered in his 1989 film, 'Casualties of War', in this 'fictional documentary' loosely based on a real-life gang rape and multiple murder perpetrated by US soldiers in Iraq in 2006. Centred around a small army group stationed at a checkpoint in Iraq, the film alternates points of view, balancing the experiences of these inexperienced young men with those of the western media and local Iraqi people. Utilising an array of different filmic styles, from video diaries and surveillance footage, to produced documentaries and news coverage, De Palma forces the viewer to question how 'truth' is reported and asks difficult questions about the brutalising effects of war on all those involved.

Moving adaptation of a short story by Alice Munro, starring Julie Christie as Fiona, who has been married to Grant (Gordon Pinsent) for almost 50 years. The couple's commitment to each other appears unwavering, and their everyday life is full of tenderness and humor. This serenity is broken only by the occasional, carefully restrained reference to the past, giving a sense that this marriage may not always have been such a fairy tale. This tendency of Fiona's to make such references, along with her increasingly evident memory loss, creates a tension that is usually brushed off casually by both of them. But as the lapses become more obvious and dramatic, it is no longer possible for either of them to ignore the fact that Fiona is suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

After becoming orphaned as a boy in mysterious circumstances, Simon (Devon Bostick) has been brought up by his Uncle Tom (Scott Speedman).

When Simon's teacher Sabine (Arsinee Khanjian) reads Simon's class a news story about an attempted aircraft bombing, Simon identifies strongly with the story and rewrites it as a version of the accident that caused his parents' death. As his interpretation of the story gathers momentum and ends up in the public arena on the internet, Simon finally comes face to face with his own memories and experiences - and discovers that only he can decide what to believe about his fractured past.
