Description : For years, Singapore with its many opportunities has attracted a large expat population. Some test it out for a few years and then move on, others sink in their roots and immerse themselves in the vibrant mix of local culture. “Dear Ms Expat” is a collection of 10 real-life stories from women who have made tropical Singapore their home. They each left their comfort zone in search of adventure, following a partner or in pursuit of a bright new career for themselves. The tales are as diverse as the women’s backgrounds, with childhood spent either on rolling Australian farms, amidst Swiss mountains, or in small-town America. These women have reinvented themselves to become entrepreneurs, photographers, advocates, writers and leaders. Transplanted to a new environment, they worked hard to better themselves—whether it is for personal fulfilment, for their families, for the expat community, or for womankind at large. This book seeks to inspire and motivate by highlighting the sheer grit, spirit and determination of all the women featured.

Description : The largest Pakistani community in the UK is to be found in Birmingham. Muslim pupils are already the majority religious group in the local schools. Ever since the days of the Lunar Men, Birmingham has been a leader of cities. But, can it sustain this success without the active involvement of its Pakistani community? This extensively researched letter from one of its 'adopted' sons is directed at everyone who cares for the city. It catalogues the development of Pakistani-Birmingham over the past 60 years. It also draws attention to their wholesale exclusion from centres of opportunities and power across the city. Is it time for positive action strategies; even a new 'social contract' to be put in place? For the journey ahead, a route map is suggested in the form of 'Birmingham Principles'

Description : Women, Gender, and Crime: Core Concepts provides you with a complete and concise view into the intersection of gender and the criminal justice system. Author Stacy L. Mallicoat explores core topics on women as victims, offenders, and criminal justice professionals as they interact with various areas of the criminal justice system. She investigates relevant subjects that are not found in many traditional texts, including women who work as victim advocates and international issues of crime and justice relating to gender.

Coverage of critical topics introduce you to important issues such as gender representation in criminal justice academia, multiple marginalities and LGBT populations, cyberstalking, labor trafficking, and challenges faced by women as criminal justice practitioners. Statistics, graphs, and tables demonstrate the most recent trends in the field to give students an accurate picture of the criminal justice system today.
Description : Helen Keller, Eleanor Roosevelt and Hillary Clinton are each beloved women and are complex characters. So much has already been written about them that another book seems like overkill to be sure; however, whenever a topic about women, about women in politics, about hope is considered then one or all three of these historical giants become necessary to consider. Their struggles, triumphs and shortcomings are out there for everyone to see, and everyone does indeed have opinions that are as varied as are these historical icons. How different they are, and yet they share things in common that makes them sisters in heart and purpose. Often those who have more accomplish less than do those who have less and have more to overcome. Perhaps, it is the struggle that makes some great; perhaps, without the struggle these ladies would have been mediocre. As it is, they are anything but mediocre. They are three amazing women in herstory.

Description : The academy is in crisis. Students call for speakers to be banned, books to be slapped with trigger warnings and university to be a Safe Space, free of offensive words or upsetting ideas. But as tempting as it is to write off intolerant students as a generational blip, or a science experiment gone wrong, they’ve been getting their ideas from somewhere. Bringing together leading journalists, academics and agitators from the US and UK, Unsafe Space is a wake-up call. From the war on lad culture to the clampdown on climate sceptics, we need to resist all attempts to curtail free speech on campus. But society also needs to take a long, hard look at itself. Our inability to stick up for our founding, liberal values, to insist that the free exchange of ideas should always be a risky business, has eroded free speech from within.
