Much has been written on the plight of women in Indian society, but this book presents an effective practical response to the appalling injustices - and a model of hope for agencies and programs for oppressed women around the world. This book recounts the true story of "Maher," a remarkable project and centre for battered women and children located near Pune, India. Founded in 1997, the project has provided refuge to more than 1250 women, half of whom might otherwise have been murdered, committed suicide, or starved to death. Maher is an interfaith community that honours all religions and strongly repudiates caste distinctions - making it a rare beacon shining new hope upon some of the gravest problems in India and around the world. The book is rich with stories - poignant first-hand accounts by women and children whose lives have been transformed by the Maher project. Later chapters explore the larger implications of this pioneering work, with guidance for implementing similar projects elsewhere. Written in a concise narrative style, "Women Healing Women in India" is an easy and compelling read.

One of the few plays that survived intact from the heyday of ancient Grecian drama, Lysistrata is an enormously influential work of satirical comedy. In order to bring an end to a destructive and never-ending war, the women of Greece take a temporary vow of chastity, pledging to remain abstinent until the conflict ends. As can be expected, mayhem -- and hilarity -- ensues.

Anna Trevor, a young American scholar, has the kind of mind Mary Shelley must have foreseen. During waking hours Anna is preparing a controversial paper on Frankenstein. When asleep, she falls into alarmingly realistic dreams, meeting Mary and learning the truths that only the author herself could know.In England, where Anna has come to present her paper, synchronicity and seeming coincidence abound. While staying with her cousin, Rose, Anna learns of a fragile ancestral tie to the Shelleys. She travels to Manesbrook Manor with Rose's son, Taylor, to meet ninety-four-year-old Auntie Francis, who claims to have been intimate with remnants of the Shelley family and speaks of writings never made available to scholars—hidden, perhaps, in the manor's cellar, which has been sealed for seventy-five years. When Taylor's brother-in-law, Peter, arrives, Anna's dreams spill over into her waking state, suggesting that they're more than archeological expeditions into a distant past. Anna begins to believe that Mary and her legendary lovers, the poets Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron, actually exist as conscious beings sharing time and space—and mind—with her.Are Anna's dreams “real” experiences capable of influencing both the present and the past and of healing the wounded imaginations of all concerned? Is this a ghost story? A tale of mystical encounters in a state of consciousness where all time is present time? Requiem is an impeccably researched portrait of the brilliance and daring of the author of Frankenstein. It is a tribute, a philosophical novel that embraces the Romanticism of Mary Shelley's day. It is a symbolic unfolding of the recovery of the creative genius of the feminine, and a literary fiction that, like its namesake, rides the thin edge between the rational and the irrational.
