"Bold Girls Speak inspires girls to go boldly where God calls. This collection of Old and New Testament short stories follows smart, problem-solving girls who persevere and thrive with God's help in difficult circumstances. Most are unnamed and overlooked, living in a foreign culture, but the small ones can make a big difference. A few of the main characters are well known and named, but most are found in tucked-away verses in the shadows of the powerful. The girls live in historical and social-cultural settings authentic to the Bible, and they increase the reader's curiosity about biblical times and places. Each story is accompanied by age-appropriate commentary and discussion questions appropriate for classes, mother-daughter groups, home-schoolers, and Christian schools, as well as those reading for enjoyment.

This play, a specified text for Revised Higher English, is the story of three women in war-torn Belfast. Although their men have been killed or imprisoned for their political activities, everyday life must go on. However, the arrival of a disturbing young girl and the revelations which follow threaten to disrupt their friendship. The main themes are largely domestic - relationships between women and within families, dreams and homemaking. The language is colloquial with Irish idioms, and many contemporary references, and there is a poignant ending. The play is aimed at students of English, particularly those studying Higher Grade English. In 1991 Rona Munro won the Susan Smith Blackburn Award and "The Evening Standard" Most Promising Playwright Award for "Bold Girls".

Everybody had thought the car-jacking led to the banker's murder. Then he turns up in a photograph taken by his kidnappers. But if the banker is still alive, whose ashes are buried in his grave? Reporter Eddie Bourque is back, chasing down a story that could make his career. Eddie is a real maverick, stubborn as a mule, smart and intuitive - in fact, he has the requisite nose for news. And he's lucky in getting the tip of a lifetime. It leads him to ask difficult questions and chase down unlikely leads - like his imprisoned brother, Henry Bourque, a man Eddie scarcely knows. Does Henry have a real clue or is he conning Eddie, not just about the banker but about whether he committed the double murder that sent him away for life? Eddie's hunt for answers takes him across the neighborhoods of his old industrial mill town, Lowell, Massachusetts - its past, its gritty, multicultural present, its power structures, its underbelly - and deep into his own family's dark secrets. As Eddie and his new sister-in-law struggle to untangle the knots, they hear the echoes of a forgotten crime and find bodies blocking their path to truth. Someone is killing Eddie's new sources....

In the film world today, there is extraordinary attention paid to actors, actresses and directors, yet the producers who gave many of them their first breaks and helped mold their careers have managed to remain outside the limelight. This work covers producers who gave early breaks to actors and actresses like Al Pacino and Demi Moore, directors like Steven Spielberg and Todd Haynes, and writers like Aaron Sorkin. These legends may never have become known if not for their producers' behind-the-scenes insight and ability to recognize talent. Interviewees include David Brown (Jaws, A Few Good Men), Martin Richards (Chicago, The Shining), Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson (Goldeneye, Die Another Day), Dino DeLaurentiis (La Strada, Hannibal), Michael Phillips (Taxi Driver, The Sting), Martin Bregman (Serpico, Scarface), Lauren Shuler Donner (You've Got Mail, X-Men), Robert Chartoff (Rocky, Raging Bull), Mace Neufeld (The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games), Paula Wagner (Vanilla Sky, Mission: Impossible), and many, many more!

For some time, reality TV, talk shows, soap-operas, and sitcoms have turned their spotlights on women and girls who thrive on competition and nastiness. Few fairytales lack the evil stepmother, wicked witch, or jealous sister. Even cartoons feature mean and sassy girls who only become sweet and innocent when adults appear. And recently, popular books and magazines have turned their gaze away from ways of positively influencing girls' independence and self-esteem and towards the topic of girls' meanness to other girls. What does this say about the way our culture views girlhood? How much do these portrayals affect the way girls view themselves? In Girlfighting, psychologist and educator Lyn Mikel Brown scrutinizes the way our culture nurtures and reinforces this sort of meanness in girls. She argues that the old adage “girls will be girls”—gossipy, competitive, cliquish, backstabbing— and the idea that fighting is part of a developmental stage or a rite-of-passage, are not acceptable explanations. Instead, she asserts, girls are discouraged from expressing strong feelings and are pressured to fulfill unrealistic expectations, to be popular, and struggle to find their way in a society that still reinforces gender stereotypes and places greater value on boys. Under such pressure, in their frustration and anger, girls (often unconsciously) find it less risky to take out their fears and anxieties on other girls instead of challenging the ways boys treat them, the way the media represents them, or the way the culture at large supports sexist practices. Girlfighting traces the changes in girls' thoughts, actions and feelings from childhood into young adulthood, providing the developmental understanding and theoretical explanation often lacking in other conversations. Through interviews with over 400 girls of diverse racial, economic, and geographic backgrounds, Brown chronicles the labyrinthine journey girls take from direct and outspoken children who like and trust other girls, to distrusting and competitive young women. She argues that this familiar pathway can and should be interrupted and provides ways to move beyond girlfighting to build girl allies and to support coalitions among girls. By allowing the voices of girls to be heard, Brown demonstrates the complex and often contradictory realities girls face, helping us to better understand and critique the socializing forces in their lives and challenging us to rethink the messages we send them.

A bold and inspiring memoir and manifesto from a renowned voice in the women's leadership movement who shows women how to cultivate the single skill they really need in order to thrive: the ability to let go. Once the poster girl for doing it all, after she had her first child, Tiffany Dufu struggled to accomplish everything she thought she needed to in order to succeed. Like so many driven and talented women who have been brought up to believe that to have it all, they must do it all, Dufu began to feel that achieving her career and personal goals was an impossibility. Eventually, she discovered the solution: letting go. In Drop the Ball, Dufu recounts how she learned to reevaluate expectations, shrink her to-do list, and meaningfully engage the assistance of others—freeing the space she needed to flourish at work and to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships at home. Even though women are half the workforce, they still represent only eighteen per cent of the highest level leaders. The reasons are obvious: just as women reach middle management they are also starting families. Mounting responsibilities at work and home leave them with no bandwidth to do what will most lead to their success. Offering new perspective on why the women’s leadership movement has stalled, and packed with actionable advice, Tiffany Dufu’s Drop the Ball urges women to embrace imperfection, to expect less of themselves and more from others—only then can they focus on what they truly care about, devote the necessary energy to achieving their real goals, and create the type of rich, rewarding life we all desire.
