Shortlisted for the Parliamentary Book Awards 2017 ‘Jess Phillips writes like she talks: brilliantly. Her humour and passion shine through every page. Loved it.’ Robert Webb If you’re thinking, ‘Jess, who?’ then I’m glad that there was something about ‘Everywoman’ and ‘truth’ that caught your eye. Or you might already know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about the stuff I care about. Because I’m a woman with a cause, I have been called a feminazi witch, a murderer and threatened with rape. The internet attracts a classy crowd. So, speaking the truth isn’t always easy but I believe it’s worth it. And I want you to believe it too. The truth can be empowering, the truth can lead to greater equality, and the world would be incredibly boring if we let all of those people who allegedly know everything, say everything. By demanding to be heard, by dealing with our imposter syndrome, by being cheerleaders, doers not sayers, creating our own networks and by daring to believe that we can make a difference, we can. We’re women and we’re kick-ass. And that’s the truth. 'Joyfully candid and very funny.' Guardian 'Jess Phillips knows the truth . . . and here she shows how scary and sad as well as joyful and liberating the answers can be.' Damian Barr 'Everywoman has all the laughs [of Lena Dunham and Caitlin Moran] with a backbone of real glinting anger . . .there were so many funny and wise things on each page that whittling them down into a review seemed impossible.' Julie Birchill, Spectator 'As fresh as mountain air amid the Westminster tumbleweed.' Metro 'Arresting.' Observer

This Palgrave Handbook provides a definitive account of women’s political rights across all major regions of the world, focusing both on women’s right to vote and women’s right to run for political office. This dual focus makes this the first book to combine historical overviews of debates about enfranchising women alongside analyses of more contemporary efforts to increase women’s political representation around the globe. Chapter authors map and assess the impact of these groundbreaking reforms, providing insight into these dynamics in a wide array of countries where women’s suffrage and representation have taken different paths and led to varying degrees of transformation. On the eve of many countries celebrating a century of women’s suffrage, as well as record numbers of women elected and appointed to political office, this timely volume offers an important introduction to ongoing developments related to women’s political empowerment worldwide. It will be of interest to students and scholars across the fields of gender and politics, women’s studies, history and sociology.

In 1919 Nancy Astor was elected as the Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton, becoming the first woman MP to take her seat in the House of Commons. Her achievement was all the more remarkable given that women (and even then only some women) had only been entitled to vote for just over a year. In the past 100 years, a total of 491 women have been elected to Parliament. Yet it was not until 2016 that the total number of women ever elected surpassed the number of male MPs in a single parliament. The achievements of these political pioneers have been remarkable – Britain has now had two female Prime Ministers and women MPs have made significant strides in fighting for gender equality from the earliest suffrage campaigns to Barbara Castle's fight for equal pay to Harriet Harman's recent legislation on the gender pay gap. Yet the stories of so many women MPs have too often been overlooked in political histories. In this book, Rachel Reeves brings forgotten MPs out of the shadows and looks at the many battles fought by the Women of Westminster, from 1919 to 2019.

This edited collection offers the latest research into the reproduction of ‘hegemonic’ discourse and the ways in which the description and evaluation of social groups affects their ability to exercise cultural and political autonomy. The book examines the representations of a number of communities and social groups, both within their ‘micro-contexts’, and with reference to the economic, political, social, cultural and technological ‘macro-contexts’ in which they are embedded. The analysis highlights the connections between discourse, power, dominance and social inequality, focusing on patriarchal, capitalist and postcolonial representations and power imbalances. Based on a combination of theoretical and empirical analyses, the collection offers an array of macro-social critiques based on the analysis and critical understanding of contemporary contexts and representations, and how they contribute to political, social, economic and cultural practices.

Summary The inspiration for this book was derived from a message first delivered on Mothers Day from the Pulpit of Christ Temple Christian Fellowship. The message focused on the love and commitment of a faithful woman and her expectations for the same from her spouse. The response from the women in attendance was overwhelming. Building upon the outline of the original message is research gained from counseling sessions, one on one interviews, and the undisputed source for truth, The Holy Bible. I now submit to you the passion that is universal to all women. It is the one thing that remains immutable since the dawn of creation and has since fueled the flames of fantasy, romance, and desire for all those in search of it. It is timeless, and gives no respect to age, ethnicity, or culture. It is incontestably the one thing that resides at the very core of Every Woman s Dream, True love. About The Author Dwain K White Sr. has been preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ for the past fifteen years and has been pastor of Christ Temple Christian Fellowship (formerly Christ Temple Baptist Church) located in Baltimore, Maryland since 1999. He and his wife Diane currently reside in Reisterstown, Maryland with their three sons. Pastor White is not only a preacher, but an accomplished musician, writer, arranger, and producer with two CD s to his credit (Hymnology by The Upper Room Players, and The Power Of God by Maximum Glory). He has also worked with countless artists, groups, musicians, choirs, and Grammy Award winning writers, but preaching and teaching the gospel is where he remains most passionate. Pastor White has now reached another milestone in his life. The intensity of his preaching and teaching is strikingly vivid in this book (which is the first of many to come).
