Women s Libation Book Description:

“Finally, a celebration of strong women and strong cocktails! Lovingly hand-drawn and deliciously punny, Merrily Grashin's collection of enhanced classic cocktails and original artwork is a tribute to women—like Grashin herself—who inspire us to break all the rules.”—Stephanie Danler, New York Times bestselling author of Sweetbitter The perfect mix of punny humor, feminist verve, and practical instruction, Women's Libation! is a cocktail guide for the lady who likes to shake things up (and not just her martinis). In it, Brooklyn-based illustrator and long-time bartender Merrily Grashin toasts the feminist heroes who've come before us and the social movements that have helped shape us, honoring each with a delicious, imaginative cocktail. Beautifully appointed in a paper-over-board package with two-color interiors, each spread features an original illustration for every boozy beverage and a brief reflection on the historical figure, event, or movement in women's history on which the drink is based. With new twists on classic cocktails as well as inventive new libations, Grashin's recipes will educate you as you imbibe, including such gems as: • Joan of Arc & Stormy • Vermouth Bader Ginsberg • Emma Gold-Manhattan • Rosé the Riveter • Simone de Boulevardier • Margaret Sanger-ia Featuring 75 recipes that even the novice bartender can make at home, Women's Libation! is the perfect host gift to share at a party or to give to a feminist friend in need of some cheer.

Worshiping Women Book Description:

This exhibition catalogue, divided into three main sections, is an essential collection of images and descriptions of each of the 155 artifacts of the exhibition, containing also scrutinizing essays on the important role women played in Classical Athens. The first section, "Goddesses and Heroines", introduces the principal female deities of Athens and Attica, in whose cults and festivals women were most actively engaged: Athena, Artemis, Aphrodite, and Demeter and her daughter Persephone. The second section, "Women and Ritual," explores the practice of ritual acts such as dances, libations, sacrifices, processions and festivals in which women were active in classical antiquity. Here the critical role of the priestess comes to light, specifically in her function as key-bearer for the temples of the gods. The final section, "Women and the Cycle of Life," looks at how religious rituals defined moments of transition. This section focuses on nuptial rites and wedding banquets but also death, another occasion on which Athenian women took on major responsibilities, such as preparing the deceased for burial and tending the graves of family members. Contributors include, in addition to the editors, Professor Mary Lefkowitz of Wellesley College; Professor Olga Palagia of the University of Athens; Dr. Angelos Delivorrias, director of the Benaki Museum; Professor Michalis Tiverios of the Aristotelion University of Thessaloniki; Professor Joan Breton Connelly of New York University; Professor Jenifer Neils of Case Western Reserve University; and Professor John Oakley of the College of William and Mary in Virginia, among others.

Libation Book Description:

Libation explains how the cakewalk reaffirms connections with the past among African Americans; how its intricate patterns reflect the landscape of the American South and the pilgrimage of Black Americans from Phillis Wheatley and Harriet Tubman to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, and how the cakewalk forms the basis for a communal language of self-definition, resistance and celebration. Combining travelog, essay and a beautiful poetic system, illustrated with diagrams and photos, and all ultimately related to the symbol of the African American cakewalk, Ms. Majozo has produced a work of great richness and complexity.
