Burning Woman
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 75,380. Language: British English. Published: May 4, 2016 by Womancraft Publishing. Categories: Nonfiction » Social Science » Feminism & Feminist Theory
The long-awaited new title from Amazon-bestselling author Lucy H. Pearce. Burning Woman is a breath-taking and controversial woman’s journey through history— personal and cultural—on a quest to find and free her own power. This incendiary text was written for women who burn with passion, have been burned with shame, and who at another time, in another place, would have been burned at the stake.

"Journey through Mlle. De Scudery’s Carte de Tendre" by Gloria Orenstein, Femspec Issue 3.2
Price: $15.00 USD. Words: 8,110. Language: English. Published: December 16, 2015 by Femspec Journal. Categories: Nonfiction » Social Science » Feminism & Feminist Theory
La Carte de Tendre or the Map of the country of Tenderness can be viewed as a precursor of many board games, and, one might also claim that it foreshadows certain contemporary computer games. However, I see it more as a map of Mlle. De Scudery’s desire, and of the emotional geography of the territory of her political ambition and her sexual imagination.

Price: $15.00 USD. Words: 3,420. Language: English. Published: December 8, 2015 by Femspec Journal. Categories: Nonfiction » Social Science » Feminism & Feminist Theory
Discussions of the politics of science fiction literature often consider gender, sexuality, race, class, and, more recently, disability; age, however, is far less present within science fiction and science fiction criticism. Few representations of old age spring to mind within the genre, particularly within written works of science fiction.

With the growing popularity of post-apocalyptic scenarios, not just in SF literature but also in reality television shows about survivalism such as Doomsday Preppers (2011), Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower (1993) and Parable of the Talents (1998) are more relevant than ever.

Price: $1.99 USD. Words: 5,260. Language: British English. Published: December 6, 2015 by Outspoken Books. Categories: Nonfiction » Social Science » Feminism & Feminist Theory
The line between food enthusiasts and food snobs can be a thin one, and when, "It's easier!", "It's cheaper!", etc. drown out your insistence that the intersecting oppressions of disability, poverty, racism and fat-phobia play a part, then that line has been crossed. Food Snobbery, an extended essay by Philippa Willitts, takes an intersectional approach to critically addressing these issues.
