Bathing beauty Esther Williams, bombshell Jane Russell, exotic Carmen Miranda, chanteuse Lena Horne, and talk-show fixture Zsa Zsa Gabor are rarely hailed as great actors or as naturalistic performers. Those terms of praise are given to male stars like Marlon Brando and James Dean, whose gritty dramas are seen as a departure from the glossy spectacles in which these stars appeared. Like a Natural Woman challenges those assumptions, revealing the skill and training that went into the work of these five actresses, who employed naturalistic performance techniques, both onscreen and off. Bringing a fresh perspective to film history through the lens of performance studies, Kirsten Pullen explores the ways in which these actresses, who always appeared to be “playing themselves,” responded to the naturalist notion that actors should create authentic characters by drawing from their own lives. At the same time, she examines how Hollywood presented these female stars as sex objects, focusing on their spectacular bodies at the expense of believable characterization or narratives. Pullen not only helps us appreciate what talented actresses these five women actually were, but also reveals how they sought to express themselves and maintain agency, even while meeting the demands of their directors, studios, families, and fans to perform certain feminine roles. Drawing from a rich collection of classic films, publicity materials, and studio archives, Like a Natural Woman lets us take a new look at both Hollywood acting techniques and the performance of femininity itself.

ABSTRACT: Hans Baldung Grien used the innovative chiaroscuro woodcut technique, invented in Germany in 1508, to create his prints Witches' Sabbath (1510) and Fall of Man (1511). This thesis argues that Baldung's depictions of witches and of Eve are connected by the chiaroscuro woodcut technique. The chiaroscuro print establishes a conceptual genealogy that begins with Eve as humanity's first female transgressor and results in the sixteenth-century witch. The chiaroscuro woodcut technique removes the sixteenth-century witch of Witches' Sabbath and Biblical personage Eve in Fall of Man from discrete traditional iconographic lineages and encourages the viewer to understand witches and Eve as natural women. The new category of the natural woman serves as a way to analyze the relationship between early modern witches and Eve, as well as their pictorial and textual connections to the Christian hermit and the folkloric wild woman. Furthermore, the chiaroscuro technique elevated the woodcut by making it a luxurious, fine-art print, and thus allowed Baldung to depict his female subjects independent of any explicit textual or visual precedents. Indeed, Baldung used the technique to introduce a darkness, mood, and drama that was impossible to capture with other techniques in the graphic arts.

For years women thought they had only two choices for menopause; avoid taking synthetic hormones altogether and suffer the occasionally debilitating side effects of menopause, such as bone loss, or accept a prescription for HRT and with it an increased risk of some cancers. But, as this groundbreaking book proves, there is a better, safer, more effective way. In NATURAL WOMAN, NATURAL MENOPAUSE, Marcus Laux and Christine Conrad cut through the confusion and show women that they can take natural, plant-derived hormones, now widely available, which match their own hormones exactly without any known side effects. Accessible as well as authoritative, NATURAL WOMAN, NATURAL MENOPAUSE features stories of other women who, like Christine Conrad, found they didn't have to accept less than a completely safe alternative. This invaluable guide also offers readers their complete plan for long-lasting health and renewed vitality. Following their 'Natural Woman' plan, which features the right combination of plant-derived hormones, nutritional supplements, a plant-rich diet and an exercise programme to eliminate and even reverse the effects of bone loss, women will find not only that they will be more energetic and radiant, but they also will be adding years of good health to their lives.

This book examines the work of the classical social theorists -- Durkheim, Weber, Marx, Engels and Freud -- from a feminist perspective. The focus is on the theoretical approach adopted by each theorist in his examination of the nature of human nature and, more specifically, the nature of sex relationships.
