Trailblazing women take center stage in Feminist Icon Cross-Stitch, a collection of stylish patterns and capsule biographies that celebrates some of our favorite lady heroes. Feminism is back in the spotlight, and powerful women, from Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Malala Yousafzai to Gloria Steinem and Michelle Obama, have inspired a whole new generation to smash the patriarchy. With an introduction on the rise of modern feminism, and instructions on the basics of cross-stitch, this book features patterns for embroidering twenty iconic women -- like suffragette Susan B. Anthony, author Virginia Woolf, political icon Hillary Rodham Clinton, and pop superstar Beyoncé -- and ten empowering feminist sayings. This charming book gives today's nasty women everything they need to begin crafting hip, feminist works of art.

Yes. She. Can. Vote Her In addresses the unrealized dream of millions of American women: electing our first woman president. It makes the case for the urgency of women attaining equal executive power at all levels, including the presidency, and offers a comprehensive strategy for every woman to be a part of this campaign—the most important of our lifetimes. Women are wildly underrepresented at every level of the US government: federal, state, and local. Research has shown that women in executive government positions are far more likely than men to commit to policies that benefit women, girls, and other marginalized groups, so after centuries of underrepresentation, it’s clear: our best bet for creating a system that is more fair, balanced, and just for everyone is electing our first Madam President—as soon as we can. Vote Her In is organized around the inspirational messages seen on protest signs carried at the record-breaking 2017 Chicago Women’s March. Part One outlines the case for why we need to mobilize now, and Part Two provides a clear strategy for how to do it. Each chapter in Part Two includes an action plan that women can complete to help each other (or themselves) attain political power and work toward electing our first woman president. Author Rebecca Sive draws on her decades of political experience to create this crucial book, which empowers every American man, woman, and child who cares about our nation’s democratic future to harness their collective power in the run-up to 2020 and, at last, form a more perfect union.

We Were Feminists Once

Feminism has hit the big time. Once a dirty word brushed away with a grimace, "feminist" has been rebranded as a shiny label sported by movie and pop stars, fashion designers, and multi-hyphenate powerhouses like Beyoncé. It drives advertising and marketing campaigns for everything from wireless plans to underwear to perfume, presenting what's long been a movement for social justice as just another consumer choice in a vast market. Individual self-actualization is the goal, shopping more often than not the means, and celebrities the mouthpieces. But what does it mean when social change becomes a brand identity? Feminism's splashy arrival at the center of today's media and pop-culture marketplace, after all, hasn't offered solutions to the movement's unfinished business. Planned Parenthood is under sustained attack, women are still paid 77 percent-or less-of the man's dollar, and vicious attacks on women, both on- and offline, are utterly routine. Andi Zeisler, a founding editor of Bitch Media, draws on more than twenty years' experience interpreting popular culture in this biting history of how feminism has been co-opted, watered down, and turned into a gyratory media trend. Surveying movies, television, advertising, fashion, and more, Zeisler reveals a media landscape brimming with the language of empowerment, but offering little in the way of transformational change. Witty, fearless, and unflinching, We Were Feminists Once is the story of how we let this happen, and how we can amplify feminism's real purpose and power.

Australian Impressionism

Australia's distinctive landscape and sunny climate gave Australian Impressionism an intensity and radiance remarkable even in the international setting as the genre swept through the world's art communities during the second half of the 19th century. This book focuses on the first 15 years of the movement and follows five artists step-by-step. The story told in the Spring 2007 exhibition and in this catalog focuses on Charles Conder, Fred McCubbin, Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton, and Jane Sutherland. The material includes several thematic subjects, such as portraiture by Roberts and Streeton, and European symbolism. The art sometimes is anecdotal and contains a narrative. Australian plein air painters were interested in the way light evoked a particular emotion or mood and how to capture a fleeting moment within a short amount of time. These young artists saw themselves as leaders against the forces of conservatism and parochialism and stayed current with what was happening on the world stage. In response to a scathing review of their first exhibition, they wrote to the critic that they were 'working towards the development... of a great school of painting in Australia.' Among many lasting contributions of these painters, Jane Sutherland advanced the professional standing of women artists of her time.

"Will be a 'must read' for anyone studying performance art or the art and culture of Southern California. Cheng is a brilliant and original thinker and writes with a lively, engaged and engaging poetic style through which she attempts to enact the very passion and performativity that she explores in her objects of study."—Amelia Jones, author of Body Art/Performing the Subject "Dazzling on many levels, a major contribution not only to performance art scholarship but more generally to contemporary American art, feminist, and cultural studies. In Other Los Angeleses is going to transform performance studies because of the richness of Cheng's facts and scholarship and the equal richness of her theoretical frameworks and references."—Moira Roth, author of Difference Indifference
