Resource Library

The Women’s Center Resource Library has over 5500 books, DVDs, VHSs, and posters. Our books and videos range widely in topic, and all resources analyze or address issues or the intersections of race, gender, class, and sexuality. We also have recommended reading lists for many classes and subjects. Women’s Center resources are listed in UNL’s library catalog (online at https://libraries.unl.edu/) and are checked out using your NCard. Books can be checked out for two weeks and DVDs and VHSs for one week. If you aren’t finished with the resources by then, you can renew them! More questions? Contact the Resource Assistant, Carly, at wclibrary@unl.edu, or call and leave a message at (402) 472-2597.

New Resources

Feminist Fight Club: A Survival Manual For a Sexist Workplace

Jessica Bennett

 

 

“It was a fight club—but without the fighting or the men. Every month, women would gather in a New York apartment to share sexist-job frustrations and trade strategies for how to tackle them. For years, these meetings were kept secret. But the time has come to talk about the club.”

Jefferson’s Daughters: Three Sisters, White and Black, in a Young America

Catherine Kerrison

 

 

“The remarkable untold story of Thomas Jefferson’s three daughters—two white and free, one black and enslaved—and the divergent paths they forged in a newly independent America.”

Be Fierce: Stop Harassment and Take Your Power Back

Gretchen Carlson

 

 

“When star news anchor, journalist, mother of two, and former Miss America Gretchen Carlson spoke up about sexual harassment in the workplace, she had no idea what lay ahead. But now, inspired by her actions, the floodgates have opened and thousands of women are reclaiming their power against abuse and injustice.”

Film Reviews

Hip-Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes

About the Film: “A fan of hip-hop discusses the music’s problems with homophobia, violence, masculinity, and sexism. It talks about what is to be expected of a man in the hip-hop world.” (Run Time: 55 Minutes)

Recommended To: “This would be recommended to late teens, preferably.”

Volunteer Review: 7.5/10

Tough Guise 2

About the Film: “This movie talks about the violence among men when it comes to physical and verbal violence. It shows how the next generation can stand up and be what a real man should be, and it shows that masculinity is not about being the stereotypical tough guy.” (Run Time: 78 Minutes)

Recommended To: I would recommend an audience in their early twenties or college age due to some of the material in the video. Overall, a very good educational film.

Volunteer Review: 8.5/10
