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.

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.

A Woman's Guide to Taking Her Place at the Leadership Table "It's time for women to take their places at the leadership tables alongside men. Why? Because the skills we developed at the foot of the table—bringing people together, building bridges across differences, and thinking outside the box—are in great demand. But to use this time and these skills to the greatest advantage, read this book. The authors have set a great meal for you...just devour it." —Marie C. Wilson, president and founder, The White House Project "Does she have the right stuff? That question follows women whenever they are promoted to visible leadership positions. Her Place at the Table lays out the pragmatic moves that can help any woman in business show she has the right stuff. I encourage all women with leadership aspirations to use this book as a guide." —Patricia Fili-Krushel, executive vice president, Time Warner "Women roar—they are the leaders we need in corporations today, but there are still some barriers. This book will help individual women negotiate what they need to succeed as leaders and help their firms support them in their efforts. That way we all win!" —Tom Peters, management consultant and author, Reimagine!

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

Paul and the Corinthian Discourse of Gender and Sanctuary Space

Women in Their Place examines 1 Corinthians 11-14 within the larger context of gender models and sanctuary spaces by relating exegesis to space, gender and discourse theories, to comparative archeological and historical material, and to ancient Greek, Roman, and Jewish cultural and cultic practices. It establishes a distinction between private, public and sacred/sanctuary space and argues that, in much of 1 Corinthians, Paul is concerned with the marking of firm boundaries around the sanctuary space established by rituals in the eklesia, which would effectively gender the church as a male space.

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.
