A generation gap has emerged between parents and their daughters. Mothers and fathers have little idea about the pressures and expectations they face or how they feel about them. Drawing on in-depth interviews with young women and a wide range of psychologists and experts, renowned journalist and bestselling author Peggy Orenstein goes where most others fear to tread, pulling back the curtain on the hidden truths and hard lessons of girls’ sex lives in the modern world.

Shocking, brilliant, important. A fine addition to the feminist canon. - Emma Jane Unsworth For the first time I feel like I PROPERLY understand my vagina! I wish I had read this 23 years ago! - Scarlett Curtis From earliest childhood, girls are misled about their bodies, encouraged to describe their genitalia with cute and silly names rather than anatomically correct terms. In our schools and in our culture, we are coy about women while putting straight men's sexuality front and centre. Girls grow up feeling ashamed about their periods, about the appearance of their vulvas, about their own desires. They grow up without a full and honest sex education, and this lack of knowledge has serious consequences: the number of women attending cervical screening appointments in the UK is at a 20-year low while labiaplasty is the fastest growing type of plastic surgery in the world. Vagina provides girls and women with information they need about their own bodies - about the vagina, the hymen, the clitoris, the orgasm; about conditions like endometriosis and vulvodynia. It confronts taboos, such as abortion, miscarriage, infertility and masturbation. It tackles vital social issues like period poverty, female genital mutilation and the rights of transgender women. It is honest and moving as Lynn Enright shares her personal stories but this is about more than one woman - this is a book that will provoke thousands of conversations. We urgently need to talk about women's sexual and reproductive health, about our experiences of sex and pregnancy and pain and pleasure. Vagina: A Re-Education will help us do just that.

This critical account of the American Girl brand explores what its books and dolls communicate to girls about femininity, racial identity, ethnicity, and what it means to be an American. Emilie Zaslow begins by tracing the development of American Girl and situates the company’s growth and popularity in a social history of girl power media culture. She then weaves analyses of the collection’s narrative and material representations with qualitative research on mothers and girls. Examining the dolls with both a critical eye and a fan’s curiosity, Zaslow raises questions about the values espoused by this iconic American brand.

Twenty-two distinct essays, prepared especially for Lectures on the Psychology of Women, present readers with topics often not covered in depth in standard texts. Essays are written by feminist psychologists, all of whom are active and committed teachers and researchers within the psychology of women. More than half the lectures are new to this edition, and the others have been significantly updated to include recent research and contemporary examples. The book’s organization aligns with core texts, making it ideal supplemental reading. However, each lecture stands alone, so instructors can assign readings to meet their own course needs. Part I on the diversity of women includes lectures on women with disabilities, social class, immigration, relational race privilege, aging, sexual fluidity, and mothering. Part II delves into body images and female embodiment, with lectures covering such topics as the sexualization of girls, PMS, weight and body image, media representations of Black women, genital anxieties, and the hairless ideal. Part III addresses women’s physical and mental health with lectures on depression, multicultural therapy, Black women’s health in the U.S., and institutional corruption in psychiatry. Part IV focuses on discrimination, control, and violence against women with lectures on slut-shaming, online gender harassment, and microaggressions. Part V on social justice and activism includes lectures on awareness of intersectional identities, and the relation between the psychology of women and feminist activism.

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
