This new addition to the popular guidebook series explores women's experiences and the impact of their activities on the history and landscape of St. Louis. When the city was founded, most St. Louisans believed that "a woman's place is in the home," in the house of her father, husband, or master. Over the years, women pushed out the boundaries of their lives into the public arena, and in doing so they changed the face of St. Louis. In Her Place is a guide to the changing definition of a woman's place in St. Louis, beginning with the colonial period and ending with the 1960s. Each chapter explores the experiences of women during a specific time period and identifies the sites of some of their public activities on a map of the city created from historical sources. Along the way, readers will meet such significant St. Louis women as Harriet Scott, Susan Blow, Edna Gellhorn, and Philippine Duchesne and learn about the activities of the Ladies' Union Aid Society, the Sisters of Charity, the League of Women Voters, and the Harper Married Ladies' Club. The book also includes four tours of the St. Louis region addressing the themes of the book and identifying significant buildings, homes, and other key sites. Current photographs will help readers locate the sites on detailed maps. An up-to-date bibliography and resource listing make this an invaluable guide for anyone interested in studying the history of women in the region.

Girls are hardwired to obey and submit. The problem is men and women have reversed gender roles. This is causing men to become feminized and women to become masculinized. I can prove this. You don't see many girls wearing dresses any more, do you (?), because they are all out wearing what men wear; namely: pants, teeshirts, etc. I mean come on, SERIOUSLY! If you want to have the best possible relationship with a girl, where she obeys and submits like a good little girl, then you have to train her back to childhood obedience. You must instill the fear of God in her, letting her know that you are in control of her, and that she must obey you. The more you train her, the more she will start to fall in love with you. The more she will start to accept you as her dominant master. The more she will submit to you and obey you in everything you tell her to do. The less she will try and make decisions on her own. The more she will accept your punishments when she has wronged you. I am not a mysoginistic man. I don't want you reading this thinking I am. I am a man who has a wonderfully loving relationship with my girl, who learned this secret and now want to share it with you. I watch too man of my male friends go through the pain and torment of relationships with girls. They don't know how to train a girlfriend, so they keep getting hurt, fucked, and you whatever other adjective you want to fill in the blank with. It doesn't have to be this way. It should not be this way. This book will help you fix it. I don't let my girl do anything adult. She has to play and do childlike activities. I am the adult, she is the little girl. I make her color, fingerpaint, journal in a diary (that I get to read), make her stand in a corner when she acts up, make her take a nap when she's tired, and withhold priveliges from her when she doesn't want to comply with my instructions. She loves me, let me assure you. She will never leave me, because she knows I am her answer and have her best interest at heart. She yearns to be taken care of and protected by me. She loves submitting and being dominated. The sex is amazing, let me share. You can have the same. Read this book. Do what it instructs you to do. Start training your girl today. You will win in the end, I promise. Start reading and taking notes! This is more than a book, it's a course! Grab Your Copy Now

A dream in which a man has sex with his mother may promise him political or commercial success--according to dream interpreters of late antiquity, who, unlike modern Western analysts, would not necessarily have drawn conclusions from the dream about the dreamer's sexual psychology. Evidence of such shifts in perspective is leading scholars to reconsider in a variety of creative ways the history of sexuality. In these fifteen original essays, eminent cultural historians and classicists not only discuss sex, but demonstrate how norms, practices, and even the very definitions of what counts as sexual activity have varied significantly over time. Ancient Greece offers abundant evidence for a radically different set of sexual standards and behaviors from ours. Sex in ancient Hellenic culture assumed a variety of social and political meanings, whereas the modern development of a sex-centered model of personality now leads us to view sex as the key to understanding the individual. Drawing on both the Anglo-American tradition of cultural anthropology and the French tradition of les sciences humaines, these essays explore the iconography, politics, ethics, poetry, and medical practices that made sex in ancient Greece not a paradise of liberation but an exotic locale hardly recognizable to visitors from the modern world. In addition to the editors, the contributors to this volume are Peter Brown, Anne Carson, Franoise Frontisi-Ducroux, Maud W. Gleason, Ann Ellis Hanson, Franois Lissarrague, Nicole Loraux, Maurice Olender, S.R.F. Price, James Redfield, Giulia Sissa, and Jean-Pierre Vernant.

THE TEEN PERIOD She was a beautiful, well-developed girl of thirteen. Her bright, eager face, with its changing expression, was a fascination at all times. It seemed unusually earnest and serious that particular morning as she stood waiting the opportunity to speak to me. She had asked to wait until the others had gone, and her manner as she hesitated even then to speak made me ask, “Are you in trouble, Edith?” “No, not exactly trouble,—I don’t know whether we ought to ask you, but all of us girls think,—well, we wish we could have a mirror in the locker-room. Couldn’t we? It’s dreadful to go into school without knowing how your hair looks or anything!” I couldn’t help laughing. Her manner was so tragic that the mirror seemed the most important thing in the educational system just then. I said I would see what could be done about it, and felt sure that what “all the girls” wanted could be supplied. She thanked me heartily, and when she entered her own room nodded her head in answer to inquiring glances from the other girls. As I made a note of the request, I remembered the Edith of a year or more ago. Edith, whose mother found her a great trial; she didn’t “care how she looked.” It was true. She wore her hat hanging down over her black braids, held on by the elastic band around her neck; she lost hair ribbons continually, and never seemed to miss them. She was a good scholar, wide-awake, alert, always ready for the next thing. She loved to recite, and volunteered information generously. In games she was the leader, and on the playground always the unanimous choice for the coveted “it” of the game. She was never in the least self-conscious, and, as her mother had said, how she looked never seemed to occur to her.

She dreams of fame and fortune -- and of getting her dowdy big sister to stick to a skin-care regime. These two women with nothing in common but a childhood tragedy, shared DNA, and the same size feet, are about to learn that their family is more different than they ever imagined, and that they're more alike than they'd ever believe. The brilliant new novel by Jennifer Weiner, Who Do You Love, will be released in August 2015.

Mia Johnson, the songbird of Living Waters Church, the daughter of a powerful pastor, and loving wife to her husband Edward, is living the perfect life or so it seems until she is unexpectedly hit with a blow that makes her question her faith and existence in God. Her pain, sadness and disappointment of this untimely revelation quickly turn into bitterness and disgust and she decides to leave her once storybook life and family behind to embark upon a journey that is ultimately destined for destruction. As her family attempts to heal its own exposed wounds and crushing secrets, Mia finds consolation and corrupt employment with a childhood friend, Corey, who is rightfully powerful in all the wrong ways. As Mia desperately looks to continually distance herself from her family thousands of miles away, the bit of light that remains within her, is a lingering reminder in her new life that God still loves her in spite of her pain and decision to leave Him. She will soon have to make a critical decision whether to return home and forgive her transgressors, as God does His children, or continue to deepen her roots in working in the dark bowels of crime.
