✏Women in the Shadows Book Summary : "Women in the Shadows" discusses the biographies of five brilliant and talented women born in the Austro-Hungarian Empire: Mileva Einstein-Marić, Margarete Jeanne Trakl, Lise Meitner, Milena Jesenska, and Margarete Schutte-Lihotzky. Charles S. Chiu creates -a narrative against forgetting, as a small step out of darkness- by writing about these women's accomplishments, which were overshadowed by those of the famous men in their lives. Edith Borchardt's translation brings this narrative to a wider audience. "Women in the Shadows" will interest scientists and scholars in the humanities as well as the general reader. The women portrayed represent various fields - mathematics, physics, music and literature, journalism, and architecture - making "Women in the Shadows" suitable for courses on the history of science, German and Austrian studies, as well as women's studies."

✏Out of the Shadows Book Summary : This unique collection provides social work students and practitioners with critical analysis and practical guidance for working with abused women who are marginalized because of immigrant, refugee, or Aboriginal status. Out of the Shadows presents the work of Canadian academic researchers and frontline workers who demonstrate the increased risk faced by these women when they are victims of domestic violence, due to the racism inherent in our judicial and social systems. Our communities have neither fully faced nor met the challenges presented by this serious problem. Readers will be provoked to reflect on, and re-evaluate, the theoretical and political framework inherent in our service delivery systems and will be intrigued and delighted by accounts of culturally diverse women's groups and individuals who have transformed themselves from victims to victors.

✏From Out of the Shadows Book Summary : For centuries, Mexican-American women have been creative, innovative forces shaping the cultural and economic development of what is now the American Southwest. Whether living in a labor camp, a boxcar settlement, or an urban barrio, Mexican women nurtured families, worked for wages, built extended networks, and participated in community associations--efforts that solidified the community and helped Mexican Americans find their own place in America. Now, in From Out of the Shadows, historian Vicki L. Ruiz provides the first full study of Mexican-American women in the 20th century, in a narrative enhanced by interviews and personal stories that capture a vivid sense of the Mexicana experience in the United States. Beginning with the first wave of women crossing the border early this century, Ruiz reveals the struggles they have faced, the communities they have built, and also highlights the various forms of political protest they have initiated. What emerges from the book is a portrait of a distinctive culture in America that has slowly gathered strength in the last 95 years. From Out of the Shadows is an important addition to the largely undocumented history of Mexican-American women in our century.
