As a minister, I am excited to have access to a Bible Study that hits the mark of truth for women who desire to live within our society with confidence of who they are. Establishing a firm spiritual foundation is vital in our unstable world. A Woman of Substance affords an outline upon which to build that foundation, providing a breadth of Biblical teaching that allows deep spiritual growth. In this practical step-by-step study, a woman's beauty is revealed to be deeper than the surface of her skin. Each reader will be able to glean from these practical teachings through clever analogies of everyday applications that will help build her thoughts and boundaries which will stand against any manner of adversity. She will also be able to identify other women of substance and appreciate how they influence the lives of those around them.' -Laura McCullough Co-Founder, Church for Now Boise, Idaho Author Sheila Eismann has ministered to women for over twenty years through leading various small groups and speaking at women's events. Sheila, an accounting services professional and former legal secretary, along with her husband, Dan, the current sitting Chief Justice of the Idaho Supreme Court, reside in Eagle, Idaho, where they co-labor among other Christians to help equip the saints for the work of the ministry. They recently celebrated their silver wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoy spending time with their children, grandchildren, and fabulous friends.

Writing this book came into my mind when I was selected under a special scholarship programme to represent India as its cultural ambassador to japan in 2009. And this was the time when my association with Dr. Kiran Bedi began and i became her 'Dear Student'. The very purpose of connecting with Dr. Bedi was because i wanted to place forward an example in the front of japanese people that how an indian woman can emerge out to be one the most dedicated and phenomenal change agents in the country. Since i was representing India, and indian culture, i felt the need of sharing something about Dr. Kiran Bedi, who had been my guide & inspiration. This book is all about my experience and reminiscences with Dr. Bedi and how with her blessings she inspired me to address a huge gathering of 1500 people at the famous Olympic Stadium in Tokyo, comprising students and teachers from 7 Asian countries and included local japanese school / university students, and delegated from the japanese embassy. There are leaders who show direction to the others, and there are followers who tread the path. When Kiran Bedi became the first indian lady IPS officer way back in 1972, getting on to the pedestal of success was a pipe dream for most indian women. Kiran Bedi's success story inspired many into believing that the fairer sex could achieve what they wanted only if they followed their dream with an iron wall. Siddharth Iyer This Book is a tribute to the legendary Dr. Kiran Bedi from her student who through her story, wants to inspire everyone, especially the youths of this country, that nothing is impossible if one's mission is undertaken with discipline and dedication.

Women of Substance in Homeric Epic

Objects, Gender, Agency

Women in Greek epic are treated as objects, as commodities to be exchanged in marriage or as the spoils of warfare. However, women in Homeric epic also use objects to negotiate their own agency, subverting the male viewpoint by utilizing on their own terms the very form they themselves are thought by men to embody. Such female objects can transcend their physical limitations and be both symbolically significant and powerfully characterizing. They can be tools of recognition and identification. They can pause narrative and be used agonistically. They can send messages and be vessels for memory. Women of Substance in Homeric Epic offers a new and insightful approach to the Iliad and Odyssey, bringing together Gender Theory and the burgeoning field of New Materialisms, new to classical studies, and thereby combining an approach predicated on the idea of the woman as object with one which questions the very distinction between subject and object. This productive tension leads us to decentre the male subject and to put centre stage not only the woman as object but also the agency of women and objects. The volume comes at a turning point in the gendering of Homeric studies, with the publication of the first English translations by women of the Iliad in 2015 and the Odyssey in 2017, by Caroline Alexander and Emily Wilson respectively. It makes a significant contribution to scholarship by demonstrating that women in Homeric epic are not only objectified, but are also well-versed users of objects; this is something that Homer portrays clearly, that Odysseus understands, but that has often escaped many other men, from Odysseus' alter-ego Aethon in Odyssey 19 to modern experts on Homeric epic.

There are aspects of the Proverbs 31 woman in all of us. God had a clear blueprint of what He intended us to be when He created us. He was certain about His creation. His intention was in no way ambiguous. We were created with a clear place and purpose in life. We were endowed with feminine graces that enable us to bring life and sustain it. It is imperative in this day and age that we understand Gods dictates for femininity. If we are swayed by the doctrine of this world we will not only lose our way, but we will abort our destiny. God is waiting for us to take our place in Him by becoming women who He can depend on. We are made of the same stuff as the Proverbs 31 woman. The same God, using the same material to bring us into being, created us. The same substance formed us. It is time for women of God to stop living beneath their privilege. There is no woman like the woman of God, a woman of substance, strong, focused, and filled with the beauty of Christ.

This is the memoir of a remarkable woman, Begum Khurshid Mirza, the daughter of Sheikh Abdullah and Waheed Jahan Begum, the founders of Aligarh Women's College. An intimate portrait of an upper class Muslim family in India and Pakistan from the early part of the twentieth century until the recent past, this narrative is much more than an account of Khurshid Mirza s personal life. It spans the years from 1857 to 1983 and provides an insight into the social conditions of Indian Muslims, the state of Muslim women s education, and the transition to Pakistan, while illuminating Khurshid Mirza s rich and varied life as an actor, activist, radio and TV artist, a writer, a devoted daughter, wife and mother.

Through the Ages, women the world over, have lived under subjugation; women in India have been subjected to various atrocities as well. Nonetheless, despite the odds stacked against them, many have become shining examples for others to follow; not for them the phrase: Frailty thy name is woman. So it is with the characters, whose stories appear on the pages of this book. Their names may be ordinary, but their show of resilience is extraordinary. Kavita, Pushpa, Poonam, Deepa, Charu, Aru and Madhuri, hailing from different cities and different strata of the Indian Society, all run into problems not of their making. From fighting to keep their foetuses alive, to confronting the problem of impotency, to avoiding unwarranted advances, to being involved in murders, to giving birth to a baby who talks about his past, to taking care of a son who has cancer, to sustaining a brain haemorrhage, to having a tumour and a baby growing together, to being looked down upon as a divorcee - they face it all. But, their never-say-die attitude stands them in good stead. They tackle their individual problems and come up triumphant.

Die kraftvolle und inspirierende Autobiografie der ehemaligen First Lady der USA Michelle Obama ist eine der überzeugendsten und beeindruckendsten Frauen der Gegenwart. Als erste afro-amerikanische First Lady der USA trug sie maßgeblich dazu bei, das gastfreundlichste und offenste Weiße Haus zu schaffen, das es je gab. Sie wurde zu einer energischen Fürsprecherin für die Rechte von Frauen und Mädchen in der ganzen Welt, setzte sich für einen dringend notwendigen gesellschaftlichen Wandel hin zu einem gesünderen und aktiveren Leben ein und stärkte außerdem ihrem Ehemann den Rücken, während dieser die USA durch einige der schmerzlichsten Momente des Landes führte. Ganz nebenbei zeigte sie uns noch ein paar lässige Dance-Moves, glänzte beim „Carpool Karaoke“ und schaffte es obendrein auch, zwei bodenständige Töchter zu erziehen – mitten im gnadenlosen Blitzlichtgewitter der Medien. In diesem Buch erzählt sie nun erstmals ihre Geschichte – in ihren eigenen Worten und auf ihre ganz eigene Art. Sie nimmt uns mit in ihre Welt und berichtet von all den Erfahrungen, die sie zu der starken Frau gemacht haben, die sie heute ist. Warmherzig, weise und unverblümt erzählt sie von ihrer Kindheit an der Chicagoer South Side, von den Jahren als Anwältin und leitende Angestellte, von der nicht immer einfachen Zeit als berufstätige Mutter sowie von ihrem Leben an Baracks Seite und dem Leben ihrer Familie im Weißen Haus. Gnadenlos ehrlich und voller Esprit schreibt sie sowohl über große Erfolge als auch über bittere Enttäuschungen, den privaten wie den öffentlichen. Dieses Buch ist mehr als eine Autobiografie. Es enthält die ungewöhnlich intimen Erinnerungen einer Frau mit Herz und Substanz, deren Geschichte uns zeigt, wie wichtig es ist, seiner eigenen Stimme zu folgen.
