Ciudad de mujeres by Elizabeth Gilbert Summary

La autora de Come, reza, ama regresa con una deliciosa novela llena de glamur, humor y pasión por la vida. En el verano de 1940 Vivian Morris llega a Manhattan con 19 años y tan solo una maleta y una máquina de coser, empujada por sus desesperados padres. Aunque su especial talento con la aguja y su dedicación a lograr el peinado perfecto no le han servido de gran cosa en la prestigiosa universidad de Vassar, la convertirán en la modista estrella del Lily Playhouse, el decadente teatro de variedades de su poco convencional tía Peg. Los días en Nueva York son de todo menos aburridos a pesar de la guerra. En esta ciudad de mujeres Vivian y sus amigas buscan ser libres y beberse la vida hasta la última gota. Pero Vivian también descubrirá que le quedan lecciones que aprender y amargos errores que cometer, y que para vivir la vida que de verdad desea tendrá que reinventarse a cada paso. «En la vida de una mujer, llega un momento en que se cansa de sentirse culpable todo el rato. Y, a partir de ese momento, es libre de convertirse en quien de verdad es.» Reseñas: «Una novela glamurosa, sexi, fascinante y divertida... Una historia adictiva con personajes femeninos llenos de intensidad y trazados sin pudor. Radical y refrescante.» Sunday Times «Una gloriosa celebración, compleja y emocionalmente inteligente, de lo que significa ser mujer.» Guardian «Perfecta... una novela absorbente y con corazón, que encierra además un potente mensaje sobre la realización personal y la felicidad.» Publishers Weekly «Una novela tan vibrante, sexi y sabia como el superéxito de la autora Come, reza, ama.» People Magazine «Los ingeniosos diálogos de Elizabeth Gilbert resplandecen como diamantes en el champán.» The Washington Post «Deliciosa... Personajes fantásticos, vestidos espléndidos, frases increíblemente ingeniosas, sugerente atmosfera de la época de la guerra y excelentes descripciones del sexo... No se pierdan sus maravillosas novelas ni un minuto más.» Kirkus Reviews «Gilbert traza un fascinante perfil de las aventuras de la joven Vivian, abordando temas como la libertad, la responsabilidad y el empoderamiento que son intemporales y a la vez resultan muy oportunos.» Time «Leer Ciudad de mujeres es una pura delicia, gracias a sus personajes llenos de vida, sus ingeniosos diálogos, sus divertidas y a la vez emotivas tramas, sus escenas auténticamente eróticas, su inteligencia sexual, su suspense y sus incisivas verdades.» Booklist «Una fascinante novela sobre amor, libertad y encontrar tu propia felicidad.» PopSugar «Llena de personajes memorables.» BuzzFeed News «Ferozmente feminista, además de repleta de inspiradores verdades sobre el amor y la libertad, esta historia es a la vez un festín para los sentidos y un bálsamo para el alma.» Esquire.com «Ciudad de mujeres trata sobre mujeres que se sacuden los grilletes del matrimonio y las convenciones sociales para explorar sus deseos.» BBC Radio 4

Deco Body, Deco City by Ageeth Sluis Summary

In the turbulent decades following the Mexican Revolution, Mexico City saw a drastic influx of female migrants seeking escape and protection from the ravages of war in the countryside. While some settled in slums and tenements, where the informal economy often provided the only means of survival, the revolution, in the absence of men, also prompted women to take up traditionally male roles, created new jobs in the public sphere open to women, and carved out new social spaces in which women could exercise agency. In Deco Body, Deco City, Ageeth Sluis explores the effects of changing gender norms on the formation of urban space in Mexico City by linking aesthetic and architectural discourses to political and social developments. Through an analysis of the relationship between female migration to the city and gender performances on and off the stage, the book shows how a new transnational ideal female physique informed the physical shape of the city. By bridging the gap between indigenismo (pride in Mexico's indigenous heritage) and mestizaje (privileging the ideal of race mixing), this new female deco body paved the way for mestizo modernity. This cultural history enriches our understanding of Mexico's postrevolutionary decades and brings together social, gender, theater, and architectural history to demonstrate how changing gender norms formed the basis of a new urban modernity.

Offering comparative readings of films such as Pedro Almodóvar’s classic Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown with his production company’s first foray into television production—a 2006 series called Women—alongside prize-winning workplace dramas watched by thousands on Spanish television, Alejandro Amenábar’s The Sea Inside, and the attempts to establish the dominant Latin American genre of the telenovela in the very different context of Spanish television.

Au bonheur des filles by Elizabeth Gilbert Summary

New York est une fête! Du haut de ses 19 ans, Vivian sait déjà qu’elle ne veut pas du destin tout tracé par ses parents. Mais de sa bulle protégée, elle est loin de s’imaginer le tourbillon incroyable qu’est New York au début des années 1940. Alors, quand après un énième échec scolaire elle est envoyée chez sa tante Peg qui possède un théâtre en plein Times Square, Vivian n’en croit pas ses yeux. Entre la ville qui vibre sans cesse et la troupe d’artistes et de danseuses qui cohabitent joyeusement dans le théâtre, Vivian découvre l’exubérance, la fête et la liberté. Surtout auprès de sa nouvelle amie Celia, une sublime showgirl très émancipée pour l’époque... Mais un faux pas lors d’une virée nocturne fera hélas chavirer le nouveau monde de Vivian et la renverra à la case départ. Quand on a goûté au bonheur d’être une fille libre, peut-on y renoncer ?

Sex and the Sexual during People’s Leisure and Tourism Experiences by Neil Carr,Yaniv Poria Summary

Sex and the sexual have for far too long been consigned to the dark corners by social scientists in general and tourism and leisure scholars in particular. Sex and the Sexual During People’s Leisure and Tourism Experiences seeks to begin to rectify this situation by bringing the position and nature of sex and the sexual into the light of academic debate. As such, this book is designed to highlight cross-disciplinary emerging work on sex and the sexual in leisure and tourism and provide the readers with insights into this social realm. It encompasses a broad array of sex-related issues and tourism and leisure environments from across a variety of countries. The book should appeal to researchers and students across the humanities and social sciences both for the value of the research in its own right and the ability of it to be used as a lens through which to view the position of sex and the sexual as well as tourism and leisure in today's world. Overall, it is argued that sex and the sexual should play a part in the academic discourse, especially if we wish to describe what is actually happening out there as far as tourism and leisure are concerned.

Terrorizing Women by Rosa-Linda Fregoso,Cynthia Bejarano Summary

More than 600 women and girls have been murdered and more than 1,000 have disappeared in the Mexican state of Chihuahua since 1993. Violence against women has increased throughout Mexico and in other countries, including Argentina, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. Law enforcement officials have often failed or refused to undertake investigations and prosecutions, creating a climate of impunity for perpetrators and denying truth and justice to survivors of violence and victims’ relatives. Terrorizing Women is an impassioned yet rigorously analytical response to the escalation in violence against women in Latin America during the past two decades. It is part of a feminist effort to categorize violence rooted in gendered power structures as a violation of human rights. The analytical framework of feminicide is crucial to that effort, as the editors explain in their introduction. They define feminicide as gender-based violence that implicates both the state (directly or indirectly) and individual perpetrators. It is structural violence rooted in social, political, economic, and cultural inequalities. Terrorizing Women brings together essays by feminist and human rights activists, attorneys, and scholars from Latin America and the United States, as well as testimonios by relatives of women who were disappeared or murdered. In addition to investigating egregious violations of women’s human rights, the contributors consider feminicide in relation to neoliberal economic policies, the violent legacies of military regimes, and the sexual fetishization of women’s bodies. They suggest strategies for confronting feminicide; propose legal, political, and social routes for redressing injustices; and track alternative remedies generated by the communities affected by gender-based violence. In a photo essay portraying the justice movement in Chihuahua, relatives of disappeared and murdered women bear witness to feminicide and demand accountability.
