It was the year 1773. Anne Spencer and her siblings set their foot in Boston during the latter years of American colonial era. They belong to one of the aristocratic families in England. However, after the death of their parents in a carriage accident, it was learned that their father incurred a considerable amount of debt, the payment of which left them penniless. As if the bad luck wasn’t enough, her fiancé broke their engagement, shattering Anne’s dream of having a good home with a good husband and wonderful children. They were forced to live in the slums of London and Anne and Tim hardly make ends meet. Coming to America was a way to start all over again. Anne had heard good things in the colony and was determined to give her two brothers and sister a good future. She had been raised well and was trained to manage the household and properties by her mother, qualities which she had shown in America where she immediately established a good name, being a hardworking barmaid. But that reputation will soon vanish when she refused the advances of an English officer, who in turn spread rumors that she was a woman of loose conduct. She lost her job and her dream until Theo, a man who had seen her real character, offered her marriage that would redeem her name and give her and her siblings a comfortable life. Theo had been a lonely man after the death of his wife. He was childless and was looking for an heir. The times had been frightful when the Americans demanded freedom from England. Amid those turbulent years, their love for each other strengthens, and their dream of raising children in a place where equality was of utmost importance came true.

Annotation When Joan Mandle accepted the position of Director of Women's Studies at Colgate University, she had specific goals in mind—to make the program stronger, more academically rigorous, and publicly open. The program would resist becoming the captive of identity politics and would refuse to allow itself to become marginalized on the campus. It would reach beyond the negative stereotypes of feminism on campus by appealing to and challenging all students and faculty interested in gender issues and social change.Just as Mandle anticipated, she faced obstacles during the transformation. Among her critics were feminist students and faculty whose views of a successful program directly contradicted Mandle's. While the new director called for outreach, they insisted on isolation. While she set forth a policy of inclusiveness, they sought to maintain an exclusive community. These individuals preferred the former model of the women's studies program, despite its tendency toward separatism.Can We Wear Our Pearls and Still Be Feminists?explores women's studies from Mandle's perspective as a program director, feminist activist, and scholar. She offers a vivid account of being forced to grapple with fundamental issues of what women's studies is and should be. Her strong commitment to feminism and women's studies does not prevent her from voicing her concerns; instead, it compells her to share the story of her directorship in hopes of shedding light on the strengths and weaknesses, pitfalls and triumphs of women's studies as an academic discipline.Through her examination of the battles involved in creating an academically significant and ideologically open program, Mandle provides insight into a possible avenue of change for feminism. By showing how the program at Colgate University was able to encourage campuswide discussions on feminism, Mandle demonstrates that women's studies can succeed as an inclusive and rigorous field. This enlightening memoir provides readers with a window on important debates concerning feminism and women in academia

In the closing decades of the twelfth century the Cistercian Order found itself in a world rather different from the one in which it had been founded and began to thrive. The Order was justifiably proud of its achievements and unparalleled diffusion across Europe. It had become an important ecclesiastical and economic power in Europe and developed an institutional structure meant to sustain a large, widespread organization. Yet it had lost its influential spokesman, Bernard of Clairvaux, and as the century drew to a close, religious sensibilities were changing. The new mendicant orders, the Franciscans and the Dominicans, and the impulses they embodied, were to shift the center of gravity in Christian religious life for centuries to come.
