Proper Silly Sisters: No More To The Dance Volk...
7,75 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The classic 1988 collaboration between these two great singers, now at budget price with an attractive new sleeve design. Maddy Prior and June Tabor are arguably the finest and most influential women folk singers of their generation. Maddy, most well known as the voice of Steeleye Span, has captured many a heart with her stirring and melodic singing in front of a full tilt electric band. June, on the other hand, has trod a more solitary path, recognised as the most affecting of solo singers."No More To The Dance" was their second collaboration and is by turns playful and restrained, exuberant and thoughtful, rhythmical and melodic, capturing the two great singers at the peak of their form.

Eighteenth-Century Female Voices
58,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work focuses on the issue of women's education in a series of novels written by women in the second half of the eighteenth century. On the one hand, the surface plots are conservative, thus reaffirming the social order, on the other hand, numerous subversive narrative techniques undermine the surface stories, drawing attention to the consequences of the arbitrary limitations society imposed on middle-class women as well as to the sense of entrapment and the resulting anxieties they experienced. In showing the increasing female readership ways to negotiate between the behavioural codes of a patriarchal society and their own need for personal freedom, these novels can be read as early feminist critiques of society.

Maiden

zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

Maiden is the inspirational story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook on charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World Race in 1989. Tracy s dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she re-mortgaged her home and bought a second-hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. With the support of her remarkable crew she went on to shock the sport and prove that women are the equal of men.
