As a young girl, Hillary Diane Rodham’s parents told her she could be whatever she wanted--as long as she was willing to work for it. Hillary took those words and ran. In a life on the front row of modern American history, she has always stood out--whether she was a teen campaigning for the 1964 Republican presidential candidate, winning recognition in Life magazine for her pointed words as the first student commencement speaker at Wellesley College, or working on the Richard Nixon impeachment case as a newly minted lawyer. For all her accomplishments, scrutiny and scandal have followed this complex woman since she stepped into the public eye—from her role as First Lady of Arkansas to First Lady of the United States to becoming the first female U.S. senator from New York to U.S. secretary of state. Despite intense criticism, Hillary has remained committed to public service and dedicated to health-care reform, children's issues, and women’s rights. Now, she aspires to a bigger role: her nation's first woman president. In Hillary Rodham Clinton: A Woman Living History, critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal gives us an intimate and unflinching look at the public and personal life of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Illustrated throughout with black-and-white photographs and political cartoons, this is a must-have biography about a woman who has fascinated--and divided--the public, who continues to push boundaries, and who isn’t afraid to reach for one more goal. "After decades in the public eye, Hillary Rodham Clinton is still an enigma, as Blumenthal (Tommy: The Gun That Changed America) emphasizes in this compelling portrait of the former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State’s journey from budding activist to presidential aspirant." —Publishers Weekly, starred review

If you grew up in the era of mood rings and lava lamps, you probably remember Free to Be . . . You and Me--the groundbreaking children's record, book, and television special that debuted in 1972. Conceived by actress and producer Marlo Thomas and promoted by Ms. magazine, it captured the spirit of the growing women's movement and inspired girls and boys to challenge stereotypes, value cooperation, and respect diversity. In this lively collection marking the fortieth anniversary of Free to Be . . . You and Me, thirty-two contributors explore the creation and legacy of this popular children's classic. Featuring a prologue by Marlo Thomas, When We Were Free to Be offers an unprecedented insiders' view by the original creators, as well as accounts by activists and educators who changed the landscape of childhood in schools, homes, toy stores, and libraries nationwide. Essays document the rise of non-sexist children's culture during the 1970s and address how Free to Be still speaks to families today. Contributors are Alan Alda, Laura Briggs, Karl Bryant, Becky Friedman, Nancy Gruver, Carol Hall, Carole Hart, Dorothy Pitman Hughes, Joe Kelly, Cheryl Kilodavis, Dionne Kirschner, Francine Klagsbrun, Stephen Lawrence, Laura L.

As the number of women candidates for office in the U.S. increases each election cycle, scholars are confronted with questions about the impact of their sex on their chances for success. Chief among these questions involves the influence of gender stereotypes on the decisions voters make in elections in which women run against men. While previous research has claimed that gender stereotypes undermine women's chances of success, Kathleen Dolan, through an original national survey of over 3000 adults, turns this conventional wisdom on its head. She demonstrates that voters do hold gendered attitudes, both positive and negative, about women candidates, but that these attitudes are not related to the political decisions they make. Instead, in deciding for whom to vote, people are influenced by traditional political forces, like political party and incumbency, regardless of the sex of the candidates. In the end, When Does Gender Matter? shows that women candidates win as often as do men and that partisan concerns trump gender every time.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Women Studies / Gender Studies, grade: 1,0, LMU Munich (Amerika-Institut), language: English, abstract: The USA remains one of very few powerful democratic nations that are yet to elect a female head of state. This BA thesis aims to deconstruct the idea of the modern USA as a "post gender society" and show that gender in reality still matters - in society just as in presidential politics. Kaisers analysis first of all, aims to illustrate the different layers the famous glass ceiling is made of - in American society in general and in presidential politics in specific. Furthermore it displays how these invisible barriers have affected Hillary Rodham Clinton as an individual woman on her rise to power. And finally it proposes to analyze Clinton's changing strategies from 2008 to 2016 to deal with gender as a variable in her efforts to become president.

Nagrađivana nigerijska spisateljica Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (1977.) zasjala je na svjetskoj književnoj sceni romanom Polovica žutog sunca u kojem prikazuje građanski rat u Nigeriji. Amerikana, njezin treći i jednako snažan roman, ocrtava život u poslijeratnoj Nigeriji, ali i u SAD-u i Velikoj Britaniji. Roman je dobio nagradu američkog Nacionalnog udruženja književnih kritičara (kojom su svojedobno ovjenčane i nobelovke Alice Munro i Toni Morrison). Amerikana ponajprije prati sudbinu mladog para ̶ Ifemelu i Obinzea. Njihova Nigerija shrvana je korupcijom i siromaštvom, a ljudi bježe iz zemlje, i to ne zbog gladi ili rata, već zbog „letargije uzrokovane nedostatkom izbora“. Samosvjesna Ifemelu odlazi na studij u Ameriku gdje proživljava neuspjehe i pobjede, nove ljubavne veze i prekide, ali stalno osjeća težinu onoga o čemu u Nigeriji nikad nije razmišljala: svoje rase. Obinze ne uspijeva dobiti američku vizu i odlazi u Englesku gdje radi ilegalno i na kraju je uhićen. Trinaest godina poslije Obinze živi u Nigeriji, obogatio se i zasnovao obitelj, a Ifemelu u SAD-u piše duhovit blog o rasnim temama koji joj donosi slavu i stipendiju na Princetonu. Prekretnica romana njezina je odluka da se vrati u Afriku. Nakon toliko godina odvojenosti i promjena Ifemelu i Obinze sastaju se u naizgled drugačijoj Nigeriji... Amerikana je roman o snazi prve ljubavi i mladenačkim snovima, životu u emigraciji, političkim previranjima, američkom snu. Ona je bogata tapiserija puna živopisnih likova koja prikazuje dva svijeta, onaj nigerijski i američki. Iako progovara o tome što znači biti crne boje kože u 21. stoljeću na Zapadu i ispisuje snažnu priču o rasi i identitetu, Amerikana je u osnovi knjiga o težnji svakoga od nas da u ovome razlomljenom, napuknutom i često okrutnom svijetu nađemo svoje mjesto i smisao. „Neke knjige pripovijedaju velike priče, neke mijenjaju naš pogled na svijet. Amerikana uspijeva u jednom i drugom.“ The Guardian
