Our image of nineteenth-century American women is generally divided into two broad classifications: victims and revolutionaries. This divide has served the purposes of modern feminists well, allowing them to claim feminism as the only viable role model for women of the nineteenth century. In All-American Girl, however, Frances B. Cogan identifies amid these extremes a third ideal of femininity: the “Real Woman.” Cogan's Real Woman exists in advice books and manuals, as well as in magazine short stories whose characters did not dedicate their lives to passivity or demand the vote. Appearing in the popular reading of middle-class America from 1842 to 1880, these women embodied qualities that neither the “True Women”—conventional ladies of leisure—nor the early feminists fully advocated, such as intelligence, physical fitness, self sufficiency, economic self-reliance, judicious marriage, and a balance between self and family. Cogan's All-American Girl reveals a system of feminine values that demanded women be neither idle nor militant.

Emmy(r) Award-winning Judge Cristina Perez, of Cristina's Court, imparts ten "laws" to empower women. With her quick wit, charm, and genuine compassion, Judge Perez has not only redefined the role of intimidating TV court judge, but also gained the trust and respect from a new generation of young women. In It's All About the Woman Who Wears It, Judge Perez lends the same candid voice, humor, and understanding that she applies in Cristina's Court to ten impactful laws. Together, these laws can teach women that the real essence of being sexy comes from a strong sense of identity. They address the problems women commonly face that prevent them from realizing their full potential for happiness. Sharing personal experiences that have made her the confident woman she is today as well as the many real-life lessons imparted from her cases, Judge Cristina's words will resound among this new generation of women who take a no-nonsense approach to life and, above all else, want to be true to themselves.

All the Anxious Girls on Earth marks the debut of a startingly original literary voice. Zsuzsi Gartner's exuberant prose gives voice to unforgettable characters who survive by their wits as they cope with indifferent relationships, lackluster jobs, and the myriad curve-balls life throws their way. A woman calls in fake bomb threats from the nineteenth floor of a bank tower as revenge against her ex-lover. The mother of a girl killed by a teenage urban guerilla thrives spectacularly in her industrious grief, transforming herself into a forgiveness guru and talk-show host. Lured into the wilderness by her desire for a man who rebuilds vintage airplanes, a young woman finds she lusts more for biscotti and city sidewalks. A small, heroic child makes a guileless request for pajamas and creates a psychic storm at the center of her anxious, achievement-mad parents' lives. Rendered in a jittery, jazzed-up prose that has been compared to that of Lorrie Moore and Mary Flanagan, these stories brilliantly capture the pathos, beauty, and alienation of contemporary life and signal the arrival of a writer to watch. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In the 2020s the female birthrate starts to decline. By 2059 only one newborn in twenty is female. This drop in the number of females in the population causes serious social upheavals: changes in sexual mores, the lives of both men and women, occupations, marriage traditions, commerce, and crime. By 2040, the year Julia is born, there is only one female birth for every five males. The situation continues to worsen in the second half of the twenty-first century, until by the time Julia is in her teens, the ratio has dropped to one in twenty-five. Scientists around the world scramble to discover what is causing this decline in female birth and to find a remedy. The world is turned upside down by the social changes brought about by the epidemic. This story tells how the surplus men try to adjust to the situation, and how women handle their newfound power, which comes with a high price: severe restrictions on their freedom and safety. After a failed marriage, Julia prospers as a courtesan, a high-status occupation in the new society. Catherine, Julias daughter, is abducted as a teenager by religious fundamentalists and her life follows radically different path from that of her mother.
