Raising the Resistance (eBook, ePUB)

Mothers are a force to be reckoned with. Whether it's managing the family's busy schedule between school assignments and extracurricular activities or excelling in a career and still helping with the kids' homework, moms get it done. And as the Women's March, the midterm elections, and the initial 2020 presidential bids show, moms are ready to stand up for issues that affect women and their families. But for those who aren't ready to make a bid for the presidency, the way forward can be daunting and unclear. Organized into four sections - Choice; Self-Care; Role-Modeling; and Taking a Stand - Raising the Resistance is a bold and accessible primer with straightforward solutions to the problems haunting women. The author, Farrah Alexander, examines a range of topics including political representation, reproductive healthcare, barriers modern mothers face, and sexual misconduct, while encouraging the readers to practice self-care, reject bigotry, plant seeds of empathy and political awareness in their children, and more. Progress is made by everyday people. Busy people who balance many different roles and responsibilities, but are just so fed up they can't take it anymore. Co-chair of the Women's March and mother of three Linda Sarsour told W Magazine: "I don't really have time to do it, but you know what? I'm so angry at the things that are around me that I'm going to take that anger and translate it into some productive work." Throughout the book, Alexander validates the reader's frustration with various societal issues women face, and then offers a practical way to channel that frustration into common sense solutions, which can be as simple as correcting a well-meaning, but misinformed, family member about gender equality, or as involved as running for political office (something with which Alexander has experience). Feminism is no longer a fringe philosophy. It's now deeply entwined with mainstream culture. However, no book speaks to women the message that feminism can be for everyone and that, with simple acts, every woman can be the change she wishes to see. Nor is there a prescriptive non-fiction title that focuses on the intersection of feminism and motherhood. Raising the Resistance is that book.

Do you find yourself rushing through your morning, stampeding to the door, making your way through traffic only to arrive 10 minutes late for work because you had to wait for the train? How does the rest of your day go? Once you get yourself into work, do you need to take a few moments to compose yourself? Perhaps you get a coffee and relax by chatting with a co-worker on your way to your desk. When you sit down you see five items that need immediate attention (some left over from yesterday) and the phone starts ringing. You forgot the morning meeting! So you start rifling through your papers. Is this sounding all too familiar by now? Regardless of whether you work at home, in an office or in a factory, or whether you work for a boss or yourself, getting a grip on time seems like a daily struggle for millions of people. It's true that many of us have heaped our daily schedule full of activities. Despite cell phones, the Internet and microwaves, it seems we never have enough time to take care of business, ourselves, our friends and family. So many of the activities we do every day are demanding our attention that it can be difficult to make plans for the future, even if the plans will ease our burdens down the road. We are busy but are we productive with our time? This is where time management has become important. Time management isn't a physics course, but it is worth making the effort to review and apply in your busy life. Why? Because time management isn't just about having time - it's about making certain our time is well spent. There will always be times in our life when we get extra busy (back to school, taxes, holidays, important projects) but learning the skills to manage the time we have wisely will alleviate much of the stress and frustration that can lead to burn out and fatigue. 1.

Assume the Position: Memoirs of an Obstetrician Gynecologist will place the listener in the shoes of an obstetrician and gynecologist with years of clinical experience and training. It will also place the listener in the same stirrups as patients in my office, listening to the trials, tribulations, joys, and fears expressed to me. All women wonder what other women experience when they see their ob-gyn physicians. All men wonder what their girlfriends or wives will be subjected to when exposed in front of their "gynos". The stresses and strains of a busy professional life on an obstetrician gynecologist are revealed in intimate, true detail. The story begins after early retirement from one of the busiest group practices in Phoenix, Arizona, and a move to the beautiful high alpine ski town of Telluride, Colorado, after an ultimatum from my wife. From there the story continues to the depths of Africa to explore women's health care in a small country with some of the worst obstetrical and neonatal outcomes in the world. Timely topics subsequently discussed include office life, operating room experiences, the medical malpractice crisis, abortion, the family life of an obstetrician, labor and delivery, nightlife, the business of medicine, Obamacare, managed care, and life after private practice. Each chapter is punctuated with true, unfiltered vignettes, laughable, joyful, fearful, and tearful, that can only be found in the life of an ob-gyn physician as he goes throughout his day. I am an actively licensed, American Board-certified obstetrician gynecologist. A graduate of Princeton University, I was trained at two of the top medical institutions in Philadelphia, after which my wife and I picked up our East Coast roots and moved to begin anew in the desert of Arizona. After 21 years of private practice, involved in all aspects of practice management and women's health care and research, I chose to leave it all behind and begin a second career. 1.
