Against Our Will Book Summary :

Susan Brownmiller’s groundbreaking bestseller uncovers the culture of violence against women with a devastating exploration of the history of rape—now with a new preface by the author exposing the undercurrents of rape still present today Rape, as author Susan Brownmiller proves in her startling and important book, is not about sex but about power, fear, and subjugation. For thousands of years, it has been viewed as an acceptable “spoil of war,” used as a weapon by invading armies to crush the will of the conquered. The act of rape against women has long been cloaked in lies and false justifications. It is ignored, tolerated, even encouraged by governments and military leaders, misunderstood by police and security organizations, freely employed by domineering husbands and lovers, downplayed by medical and legal professionals more inclined to “blame the victim,” and, perhaps most shockingly, accepted in supposedly civilized societies worldwide, including the United States. Against Our Will is a classic work that has been widely credited with changing prevailing attitudes about violence against women by awakening the public to the true and continuing tragedy of rape around the globe and throughout the ages. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as an Outstanding Book of the Year and included among the New York Public Library’s Books of the Century, Against Our Will remains an essential work of sociological and historical importance.

Femininity Book Summary :

With intelligence and humor, Susan Brownmiller explores the history and unspoken rules of the burden of “feminine perfection” What is femininity? How is it measured? What are its demands? How are women meant to dress, look, think, act, feel, and be, according to the mores of society? Susan Brownmiller offers a witty and often pointed critique of the concept of femininity in contemporary culture and throughout history. She explores the demands placed upon women to fit an established mold, examines female stereotypes, and celebrates the hard-won advances in women’s lifestyle and attire. At once profound, revolutionary, empowering, and entertaining, Femininity challenges the accepted female norm while appreciating the women throughout history who have courageously broken free of its constraints.

Against My Father s Will Book Summary :

"A Son is a son till he takes a wife; a daughter's a daughter all of her life."In AGAINST MY FATHER'S WILL, the reader follows Jane, an ordinary woman we can all identify with, as she metamorphosizes from captain of her high school cheerleading squad cheering only for males to feminist activist. Motivated by her experience at Smith College Jane aspires to become a modern, "liberated" woman, to break the housewife mold of her mother and her mother's contemporaries. That journey toward liberation entails painful conflict with her traditional father as she resists daughterly subordination, lawsuits against the sexism of her local government and country club, and always, an epic, internal battle to overcome culturally inculcated ideas of acceptability. When her father dies, she discovers that his Last Will and Testament favors her sister with the bulk of his estate, the family homes. Her principles and ideals collide with the searing emotional pain of rejection. Jane is left wondering if her father's Last Will and Testament is his final repudiation of her for her declaration of independence and equality.Filled with wit and heart, ultimately, Jane's memoir recounts the universal struggle to affirm and love oneself. It is her hope that her story will help other women recognize that the fight for dignity and equality rages not only without, but more deviously and crucially, within. Until the battle is won there, women are all still vulnerable to accept "less than" status.

Against Their Will Book Summary :

During the Cold War, an alliance between American scientists, pharmaceutical companies, and the US military pushed the medical establishment into ethically fraught territory. Doctors and scientists at prestigious institutions were pressured to produce medical advances to compete with the perceived threats coming from the Soviet Union. In Against Their Will, authors Allen Hornblum, Judith Newman, and Gregory Dober reveal the little-known history of unethical and dangerous medical experimentation on children in the United States. Through rare interviews and the personal correspondence of renowned medical investigators, they document how children—both normal and those termed "feebleminded"—from infants to teenagers, became human research subjects in terrifying experiments. They were drafted as "volunteers" to test vaccines, doused with ringworm, subjected to electric shock, and given lobotomies. They were also fed radioactive isotopes and exposed to chemical warfare agents. This groundbreaking book shows how institutional superintendents influenced by eugenics often turned these children over to scientific researchers without a second thought. Based on years of archival work and numerous interviews with both scientific researchers and former test subjects, this is a fascinating and disturbing look at the dark underbelly of American medical history.
