IN AMERICAN LIVES: A READER, UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS, ANTHOLOGY, SPRING, 2010

Memoirs are as varied as human emotion and experience, and those published in the distinguished American Lives Series run the gamut. Excerpted from this series (called “splendid” by Newsweek) and collected here for the first time, these dispatches from American lives take us from China during the Cultural Revolution to the streets of New York in the sixties to a cabin in the backwoods of Idaho.

IN MEN SPEAK OUT, ANTI-SEXUAL VIOLENCE ANTHOLOGY, ROUTLEDGE PRESS, UK, 2007

Men Speak Out is a collection of essays written by and about pro-feminist men. In the essays, which feature original, lively and accessible prose, anti-sexist men make sense of their gendered experiences in today’s culture.

The authors tackle the issues of feminism, growing up male, recognizing masculine privilege, taking action to change the imbalance of power and privilege and the constraints that men experience in confronting sexism. They describe their successes and challenges in bucking patriarchal systems in a culture that can be unsupportive of – or downright hostile to – a pro-feminist perspective.
