In 2008, the Vatican Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life initiated an Apostolic Visitation to examine the quality of life of women religious in the United States. Power of Sisterhood: Women Religious Tell the Story of the Apostolic Visitation serves as an historical record of the event and describes the experience of the women who participated in it. This book, initiated by a group of women in leadership in their communities during this unprecedented time, grew out of a survey that gleaned the essence of the experience from as many congregations of women religious as possible. After framing the Visitation as a story, situating it in an historical and theological context, tracing its chronology, and detailing the experience as revealed in the survey, the book delves into the deeper meaning of the Visitation for women religious as they experienced it and as they move into the future.

This book is written with courage and bracing honesty. The author, before she does anything else, shares her own story of pain and confusion, thereby making it clear that she writes from a well of understanding. This is not some abstract checklist of what it takes to be a whole woman; rather, it is a heartfelt guide composed by a woman who has suffered through and survived the very challenges she wants to help other women overcome. Every woman should give this book to at least one other woman, and certainly every mother to her daughter. And it must be pointed out: no man will be the poorer for reading this for a better understanding of how very different a woman's struggles and needs are from his own. This book says, "Woman, heal thyself." The author makes it clear that this must happen first, before a woman can heal others, and that this can only happen by embracing God's healing love. The author's tone is conversational, sometimes even humorous in the midst of calamity. Clearly-recalled details draw the reader into her experiences, teaching through example, and the message of God's omnipresence and faithfulness is brought home repeatedly. There is universally sound advice here for struggling men, as well: ..".you are not the mistakes you make." Xulon Press Every woman should have a mentor or friend they can look to for advice during both the challenging and joyful times in life. Cheryle T. Ricks is that friend and through her conversational style of writing, you feel as if she's right next to you as you read. Her transparency lends authenticity to her life story and credibility to her wise words. You'll walk away from this book feeling as if you've made a new friend. Erika Bennett, Xulon Press Editor

This history of the largest block women's organization in the United States is not only the story of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority (DST), but also tells of the increasing involvement of black women in the political, social, and economic affairs of America. Founded at a time when liberal arts education was widely seen as either futile, dangerous, or impractical for blacks, especially women, DST is, in Giddings's words, a "compelling reflection of block women's aspirations for themselves and for society." Giddings notes that unlike other organizations with racial goals, Delta Sigma Theta was created to change and benefit individuals rather than society. As a sorority, it was formed to bring women together as sisters, but at the some time to address the divisive, often class-related issues confronting black women in our society. There is, in Giddings's eyes, a tension between these goals that makes Delta Sigma Theta a fascinating microcosm of the struggles of black women and their organizations. DST members have included Mary McLeod Bethune, Mary Church Terrell, Margaret Murray Washington, Shirley Chisholm, Barbara Jordan, and, on the cultural side, Leontyne Price, Lena Horne, Ruby Dee, Judith Jamison, and Roberta Flack. In Search of Sisterhood is full of compelling, fascinating anecdotes told by the Deltas themselves, and illustrated with rare early photographs of the Delta women.

In the 1970s, feminist slogans proclaimed “Sisterhood is powerful,” and women’s historians searched through the historical archives to recover stories of solidarity and sisterhood. However, as feminist scholars have started taking a more intersectional approach—acknowledging that no woman is simply defined by her gender and that affiliations like race, class, and sexual identity are often equally powerful—women’s historians have begun to offer more varied and nuanced narratives. The ten original essays in U.S. Women's History represent a cross-section of current research in the field. Including work from both emerging and established scholars, this collection employs innovative approaches to study both the causes that have united American women and the conflicts that have divided them. Some essays uncover little-known aspects of women’s history, while others offer a fresh take on familiar events and figures, from Rosa Parks to Take Back the Night marches. Spanning the antebellum era to the present day, these essays vividly convey the long histories and ongoing relevance of topics ranging from women’s immigration to incarceration, from acts of cross-dressing to the activism of feminist mothers. This volume thus not only untangles the threads of the sisterhood mythos, it weaves them into a multi-textured and multi-hued tapestry that reflects the breadth and diversity of U.S. women’s history.
