Women have always been heroes but it is no longer enough to just say so. As we shake off the last traces of a major patriarchal hangover, women need new language to express an untrammelled femininity that has nothing to do with bondage -- unless, of course, that's your bag. And women of courage must have a name of their own: "Sheroes." As "Sheroes," women can fully embrace all their fiery fempower and celebrate the unique potency of a gender-tribe. Packing estrogen -- and not infrequently, a pen and a sword -- "Sheroes" come in every imaginable shape, size, color and manifest their sheroism in unimaginably infinite ways. At a time when women were relegated to the status of second-class citizens, sheroic foremothers battled exclusion and seclusion to pave the way for the fictional and real life cybersheroes, women warriors, and screen goddesses of today. "Sheroes" features 200 profiles including: Agent Scully, Rosa Parks, Foxy Brown, Wonder Woman, Jewel, Penthesilia, Lara Croft, Emma Peel, Clarice Starling, Melissa Etheridge, Starhawk, Thelma & Louise, Pippi Longstocking, Anita Hill, Harriet the Spy, Mary Richards, Nancy Drew, Judy Bari, Miss Marple, Sally Ride, Harriet Tubman, Ellen De Generes, Tina Turner, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Sacajawea. From Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver in the Alien series to Phoolan Devi, India's Bandit Queen, these women rule Sheroes: Bold, Brash, and Absolutely Unabashed Superwomen from Susan B.

Sheroes is a dizzy, amusing dip into the lives of 200 women of substance from Harriet Tubman (the original American freedom rider), comic strip character Wonder Woman, and Star Trek's Lieutenant Uhura to British adventurer Alexandra David-Neel (My Journey to Lhasa), Olympic champion speed racer Bonnie Blair, and African ecowarrior Wangari Maathai. Varla Ventura mainly celebrates easily recognized women, but deserves credit for ferreting out many early sheores, such as the five Biblical sisters who persuaded Moses that daughters deserved to inherit (albeit only when no sons are available), and little known luminaries like pro-hockey goalie Manon Rheume and Puerto Rico's freedom fighter Maria de la Mercedes Barbudo. Sheroes happily tweaks the historical record, flinging around words like "bodacious" and "braniac" such as to make scholars and feminists blanch, but it assembles a colorful listing of real and imaginary women as role models to which to aspire. --Francesca Coltrera biographical,biographies,biographies and history,biography and history,history,humor,humor and entertainment,humorous,politics and social sciences,specific groups Women's Studies, Conari Press

Women have always been heroes. But it is no longer enough just to say so. As we shake off the last traces of a major patriarchal hangover, women need a new name of their own. As sheroes, all women can fully embrace their fiery fempower and celebrate their no-holds-barred individuality. From the serhoic foremothers who blazed trails and broke barriers, to today's women warriors from sports, science, cyberspace, city hall, the lecture hall, and the silver screen, Sheroes paints 200 portraits of powerful and inspiring role models for women poised for the future. Drawn from the fictional and real worlds, the sheroic profiles include: Dian Fossey, Martina Navratilova, Sojourner Truth, Indira Ghandi, Aretha Franklin, Margaret Mead, Coretta Scott king, Georgia O'Keeffe, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Agent Scully, Joan Baez, Eleanor Roosevelt, Coco Chanel, Anita Hill, Thelma and Louise, Ripley, Roseanne, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Wangari Maathai, and others.
