Are you exciting for the long weekend? We are definitely ready to turn off the laptops and enjoy these days with friends and family. Before that let’s check out our recommendations for the following days.
The role of mother is always one of the most complicated and difficult in women’s lives. The book "Motherhood and Feminism" talks about the evolution, both natural and government imposed, of the role of motherhood in American society. Enjoy a well written book and find pictures of yourselves in the pages of the book (via Feminist Review).
If you are still looking for a summer book, we recommend you the “Invisible Bridge” by Julie Orringer. According to Tim Rutten, “Readers will be delighted she took her time, because "The Invisible Bridge" is a stunning first novel, not just in the manner that Orringer’s acclaimed short stories seemed to predict, but in a wholly unexpected fashion.” (via Los Angeles Times).
Are you interested in business books for women? Few months ago was published the new book from Maria Bartiromo, “10 laws for enduring success”. The anchor of CNBC’s “Closing Bell With Maria Bartiromo” gives us with honesty and energy her own answer of being successful today (via MSNBC).
“Their Rights and Nothing Less: A Celebration of Women’s Suffrage." This is an ongoing event Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from June 5 to September 26 at Heritage Square Museum in California. Don’t miss it! (via California National Organization For Women).
As the summer is coming, a Happy Hour with good fellow friends sounds great. On June 9th, Feministing with the amazing Paradigm Shift and Soapbox Inc. have their next NYC happy hour @ Gallery Bar (via Feministing).
