            In France, criticizing oneselves is a national sport, even more important than football. But there's one thing every foreigner does need to understand if they ever plan to spend some time with a French person. Or even more dangerously, marry a French person. Or, pure madness, liv...e in France with lots of French persons. French people hate it when foreigners do criticize them. Immediately this provokes a strange physical phenomenon. The heart starts pumping a little bit faster, reminiscences of the Marseillaise are heard by their gallic ears, and they reach mentally for the sword. For years now, French women have become a target for all sorts of representations. In fact, the number of books written about French women is becoming a publishing market in itself. No year goes by without a new book about them. And yet, in spite of her reserves in differentiating French women from other women, Marie Le Moel found some aspects can't be so easily dismissed. Of course, women, and men, all around the world, share similarities. And yet, they remain a product of their environment. French environment, culture and rich history, has produced a certain type of men and women. It has produced, too, a certain type of relationship between the two genders, where seduction and games play, still now, an important part. And in order to better fight the stereotypes, one has to try to put the finger on what constitutes a modern French woman, and why she has become, for many, an example.

            She couldn't have been more than seven or eight years old. Go ahead, ask your question, her father urged, nudging her forward. She smiled shyly and said, You're my hero. Who's yours? Many people-especially girls-have asked us that same question over the years. It's one of our fav...orite topics. HILLARY: Growing up, I knew hardly any women who worked outside the home. So I looked to my mother, my teachers, and the pages of Life magazine for inspiration. After learning that Amelia Earhart kept a scrapbook with newspaper articles about successful women in male-dominated jobs, I started a scrapbook of my own. Long after I stopped clipping articles, I continued to seek out stories of women who seemed to be redefining what was possible. CHELSEA: This book is the continuation of a conversation the two of us have been having since I was little. For me, too, my mom was a hero; so were my grandmothers. My early teachers were also women. But I grew up in a world very different from theirs. My pediatrician was a woman, and so was the first mayor of Little Rock who I remember from my childhood. Most of my close friends' moms worked outside the home as nurses, doctors, teachers, professors, and in business. And women were going into space and breaking records here on Earth. Ensuring the rights and opportunities of women and girls remains a big piece of the unfinished business of the twenty-first century. While there's a lot of work to do, we know that throughout history and around the globe women have overcome the toughest resistance imaginable to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us. That is the achievement of each of the women in this book. So how did they do it? The answers are as unique as the women themselves. Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad kept pushing forward, no matter what. Writers like Rachel Carson and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named something no one had dared talk about before. Historia

            Generation F: Why we still struggle with sex and power

            'For me these Ormond College women were, and are, the first voices of the revolution that is #MeToo in Australia.' Twenty-five years ago, Australia was in the grip of another debate about sex and power. The Master of Ormond College at the University of Melbourne had been acquitte...d of indecent assault after complaints by two female students. Helen Garner's bestselling book about the case, The First Stone, polarised readers over whether the students had been right to take their allegations to the law. Was the feminist movement poisoning gender relations? In Generation F, the young award-winning journalist Virginia Trioli offered a vigorous, incisive and compelling argument for the ongoing need for feminism, while exploring her own bewilderment and anger. She described the real state of sexual harassment, violence, the workplace and the law in Australia: how most women just copped it, but those who felt able to confront it needed all the support they could get. Now - as women around the world speak up about how sexual harassment has destroyed their work, families and lives - Trioli revisits that cultural moment in a new foreword, and in a new afterword considers the situation women face today. Dismayingly, her original text is just as relevant, and her call to action just as powerful.

            We are seeing the most exciting elevation of women's voices in decades. But how can we ensure this is not only a moment, but a movement for lasting change? Forget the old saying that when a woman climbs the corporate ladder, she needs to send it back down to help another woman cl...imb too. A ladder can only elevate one woman at a time. What's needed is a fishing net to bring up many women together, all supporting each other. When Dr Kirstin Ferguson, a leading Australian company director, decided she'd had enough of witnessing the vicious online abuse of women around her, she began the #CelebratingWomen campaign, profiling two women from all walks of life and from anywhere in the world, every day for a year. The campaign reached millions around the world and caught the attention of Twitter as an example of the collective power of sharing our stories. In Women Kind, Ferguson joins Walkley award-winning journalist and leading commentator on women in the workplace Catherine Fox to bust the harmful Queen Bee myth - the pervasive and baseless idea that women turn on each other for scarce seats at the top table. They remind us that every woman is a role model and challenge us to replace our old-fashioned definition of leadership with a new model that values the contributions of many over the few. It's time to join our voices, share our experience and celebrate the power of women supporting women.
