Having ovaries: unabashed, gutsy, feisty, playful, challenging, full of chutzpah, mettlesome, naughty, victorious, straight from the hip, full-flavored, outrageous, righteous, loving, inspiring, bold as brass, self-assured, self-confident, self-possessed, daring, heroic, wild, wanton, crazy, optimistic, unflappable, pushy, unstoppable, impressive, rebellious, kick-ass, carefree, having moxie, having heart, having no fear . . . “That takes balls” are words of praise usually reserved for a man who has done something tough, fearless, and maybe a little crazy—someone who pushes the boundaries or breaks a few rules. But when it comes to hotheaded courage, impassioned activism, quirky wisdom, or bold confrontation, women have got what it takes—and then some! That Takes Ovaries! is a lively, fun, and often touching celebration of women and girls doing their thing their way: * Kathleen, who reduced a would-be burglar to tears by lecturing him about black pride (all while standing in her underwear) * Elaine, a sky surfer who plunges from airplanes on a 30-inch surfboard * Rachel, a high school junior who organized 100 high school girls to take on the boys who harassed them * Denise, a teenage cashier who faced down an irate, gun-wielding gangbanger in an inner-city fast-food joint * Joani, a public health educator who opened the country’s first women-oriented sex-toys store * Eva, who made the dangerous, illegal journey from Central America to the United States in order to give her children a better life Now that takes ovaries!

In this unprecedented, fascinating book which covers women in theatre from the 1910s to the 2010s, author Lynne Greeley notes that, for the purposes of this study, "feminism" is defined as the political impulse toward economic and social empowerment for females or the female-identified, a position perceived by many feminists as oppositional to ideas of femininity that they see as personally and politically constraining and that "femininity" comprises social behaviors and practices that mean as "many different things as there are women," some of which are empowering and others of which are not. This book illuminates how throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, playwrights and artists in American theatre both embodied and disrupted the feminine of their times. Through approaches as wide ranging as performing their own recipes, energizing silences, raging against war and rape, and inviting the public to inscribe their naked bodies, theatre artists have used performance as a site to insert themselves between the physicality of their female presence and the liminality of their disrupting the role of the feminine. Capturing that place of liminality, a neither-here-nor-there place that is often unsafe, where the established order is overturned by acts as banal as raising a plant, women have written and performed and disrupted their way through one hundred years of theatre history, even within the constraints of a variably rigid and usually unsympathetic social order. Creating a feminist femininity, they have reinscribed their place in the culture and provided models for their audiences to do the same. This comprehensive tome, part of the Cambria Contemporary Global Performing Arts headed by John Clum (Duke University) is an essential addition for theater studies and women's studies.

In the 1970s a group of pioneering feminist entrepreneurs launched a movement that ultimately changed the way sex was talked about, had, and enjoyed. Boldly reimagining who sex shops were for and the kinds of spaces they could be, these entrepreneurs opened sex-toy stores like Eve’s Garden, Good Vibrations, and Babeland not just as commercial enterprises, but to provide educational and community resources as well. In Vibrator Nation Lynn Comella tells the fascinating history of how these stores raised sexual consciousness, redefined the adult industry, and changed women's lives. Comella describes a world where sex-positive retailers double as social activists, where products are framed as tools of liberation, and where consumers are willing to pay for the promise of better living—one conversation, vibrator, and orgasm at a time.

Ο Ιππότης των Επτά Βασιλείων λαμβάνει χώρα σχεδόν έναν αιώνα πριν από τα γεγονότα του Game of Thronesκαι περιλαμβάνει τρεις ιστορίες που αποτελούν το προοίμιο του αριστουργήματος του George R. R. Martin με τίτλο Το Τραγούδι της Φωτιάς και του Πάγου. Οι περιπέτειες αυτές, που παρουσιάζονται για πρώτη φορά συγκεντρωμένες σε έναν τόμο, αφηγούνται γεγονότα από την εποχή που η δυναστεία των Ταργκάρυεν εξακολουθεί να κατέχει τον Σιδερένιο Θρόνο και οι μνήμες από την ύπαρξη της τελευταίας δράκαινας παραμένουν ακόμη ζωντανές. Ο νεαρός, αφελής, αλλά γενναίος περιπλανώμενος ιππότης σερ Ντάνκαν ο Ψηλός υπερέχει των αντιπάλων του – αν όχι σε πείρα, σίγουρα σε ανάστημα. Στις περιπέτειές του τον συνοδεύει ο μικροσκοπικός του ακόλουθος, ένα αγόρι ονόματι Εγκ – του οποίου το πραγματικό όνομα (και επτασφράγιστο μυστικό) είναι Αίγκον Ταργκάρυεν. Παρόλο που σε ολόκληρο το Γουέστερος δύσκολα θα έβρισκε κανείς πιο απίθανους ήρωες, το μέλλον επιφυλάσσει σε αυτούς τους δύο ένα σπουδαίο πεπρωμένο… καθώς και ισχυρούς εχθρούς, βασιλικές ίντριγκες κι εξωφρενικά κατορθώματα.
