James Phelps explores all the questions that we can only barely imagine the answers to about Australia´s toughest jails. This is a brutal and honest account of life inside Australia´s toughest jails, and all is not as you would expect. Do women rape each other? Do guards really trade 40-cent phone cards for sex? And do you think the most dangerous inmate in Australia is a man? This is the most comprehensive ever account of women´s prison life yet. You will hear about rapists, drug dealers, fallen celebrities and Australia´s most feared prisoner: the self-mutilating murderer, Rebecca Butterfield. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stan Pretty.

Damned Women: Sinners and Witches in Puritan Ne...
9,95 € *

In her analysis of the cultural construction of gender in early America, Elizabeth Reis explores the intersection of Puritan theology, Puritan evaluations of womanhood, and the Salem witchcraft episodes. She finds in those intersections the basis for understanding why women were accused of witchcraft more often than men, why they confessed more often, and why they frequently accused other women of being witches. In negotiating their beliefs about the devil´s powers, both women and men embedded womanhood in the discourse of depravity.Puritan ministers insisted that women and men were equal in the sight of God, with both sexes equally capable of cleaving to Christ or to the devil. Nevertheless, Reis explains, womanhood and evil were inextricably linked in the minds and hearts of 17th-century New England Puritans. Women and men feared hell equally, but Puritan culture encouraged women to believe it was their vile natures that would take them there rather than the particular sins they might have committed.Following the Salem witchcraft trials, Reis argues, Puritans´ understanding of sin and the devil changed. Ministers and laity conceived of a Satan who tempted sinners and presided physically over hell, rather than one who possessed souls in the living world. Women and men became increasingly confident of their redemption, although women more than men continued to imagine themselves as essentially corrupt.The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks. ´´Thoughtful and stimulating book...Strongly recommended.´´ (Choice)´´An important and valuable book...opens avenues for investigation that go beyond her splendid treatment of the ´witchcraft´ issue.´´ (The New England Quarterly)´´Exciting and provocative...makes a significant contribution to the scholarship about gender and religion.´´ (Journal of Interdisciplinary History) 1.

March Sisters: On Life, Death, and Little Women...

On its 150th anniversary, four acclaimed authors offer personal reflections on their lifelong engagement with Louisa May Alcott´s classic novel of girlhood and growing up. For the 150th anniversary of the publication of Louisa May Alcott´s Little Women, Kate Bolick, Jenny Zhang, Carmen Maria Machado, and Jane Smiley explore their strong lifelong personal engagement with Alcott´s novel--what it has meant to them and why it still matters. Each takes as her subject one of the four March sisters, reflecting on their stories and what they have to teach us about life. Kate Bolick finds parallels in oldest sister Meg´s brush with glamour at the Moffats´ ball and her own complicated relationship with clothes. Jenny Zhang confesses to liking Jo least among the sisters when she first read the novel as a girl, uncomfortable in finding so much of herself in a character she feared was too unfeminine. Carmen Maria Machado writes about the real-life tragedy of Lizzie Alcott, the inspiration for third sister Beth, and the horror story that can result from not being the author of your own life´s narrative. And Jane Smiley rehabilitates the reputation of youngest sister Amy, whom she sees as a modern feminist role model for those of us who are, well, not like the fiery Jo. These four voices come together to form a deep, funny, far-ranging meditation on the power of great literature to shape our lives.

Great Women of the Apocrypha: Susanna , Hörbuch...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Read for you by best-selling narrator, Steve Cook, Susanna is found in the Apocrypha under the name, sometimes called, ´´The History of Susanna´´. She was very beautiful and feared the Lord, having been raised by righteous parents who instructed her in Mosaic law. After being wrongly accused of a crime, and sentenced to death, Susanna cries out to God, who hears her and sends a young Daniel (yes, the very same) to her rescue. Daniel conducts a clever investigation and convinces her judges to change their minds and side with Susanna, condemning her accusers to death instead. Daniel´s wisdom was respected from that day forward. Much debate continues over which books should be considered part of Holy Scripture to this day. Various church councils have made different decisions about what should be included and which should not. But, all Christians who are serious about their walk in the Christian faith should read the Apocrypha, ponder its place in Christian history, compare what the great church scholars have said concerning it, consider why Jesus himself referred to it, and above all, prayerfully understand its significant contributions to the ultimate message of salvation, made available by Jesus the Messiah. 1.

Sometimes all that it takes to start over is the courage to say you will.In Kathleen’s home, red jeans were a sin. Parties were punishable with violence. Fear was part of the daily norm. Growing up in a Catholic cult, under the unforgiving eye of her abusive father, Kathleen knew from an early age that if she were to survive, she’d have to do it on her own.But when the time came to escape, she found herself in a damaging spiral of self-destruction. At rock bottom, and with nowhere to go, Kathleen stepped off a bus in the last place she ever thought she’d find peace: a remote and very Catholic community. Spending a year in almost complete silence, Kathleen feared this experience would prove to be just another step in her unraveling. Instead, with her demons quieted, she emerged with a fresh understanding of self, an empowering new purpose, and a sense of worthiness that she would never let be challenged again.Wholly Unraveled is Keele Burgin’s gripping and inspiring journey of self-discovery and of finally finding her voice against nearly insurmountable odds. 1.
