The Fairest of Them All Book Description :

We think we know the story of Snow White from Disney and the Brothers Grimm. But acclaimed folklorist Maria Tatar reveals dazzling variations from across the globe. The story of the rivalry between a beautiful, innocent girl and her equally beautiful and cruel mother has been endlessly repeated and refashioned all over the world. In Switzerland you might hear about seven dwarfs who shelter a girl, only to be murdered by robbers. In Armenia a mother orders her husband to kill his daughter because the moon has declared her “the most beautiful of all.” The Brothers Grimm gave this story the name by which we know it best, and in 1937 Walt Disney sweetened their somber version to make the first feature-length, animated fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Since then the Disney film has become our cultural touchstone—the innocent heroine, her evil stepmother, the envy that divides them, and a romantic rescue from domestic drudgery and maternal persecution. But, as every fan of the story knows, there is more to Snow White than that. The magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the catatonic sleep, and the strange scene of revivification are important elements in the phantasmagoria of the Snow White universe. Maria Tatar, an acclaimed folklorist and translator, brings to life a global melodrama of mother-daughter rivalries that play out across countries and cultures.

Aria Thibault—Sleeping Beauty’s daughter—finds herself plagued by a curse of her own during a big design competition, and she must rely on ancient advice and help from her mother in order to break the spell in this spellbinding follow-up to Charmed, I’m Sure. Aria Thibault absolutely loves anything and everything to do with the design world. But sewing and needles are a particularly touchy subject for Aria’s family—especially her mother, Sleeping Beauty. You know, the woman who pricked her finger on a spinning wheel needle and fell asleep for a really long time.

When the opportunity comes up for Aria to compete in a once-in-a-lifetime junior design competition, Aria decides enough is enough. With a few little white lies and a clever distraction, Aria finds herself auditioning to be a part of the competition—and she is in her element.

Who s the Fairest of Them All Book Description :

President Obama has declared that the standard by which all policies and policy outcomes are judged is fairness. He declared in 2011 that "we've sought to ensure that every citizen can count on some basic measure of security. We do this because we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any moment, might face hard times, might face bad luck, might face a crippling illness or a layoff." And that, he says, is why we have a social safety net. He says that returning to a standard of fairness where anyone can get ahead through hard work is the "issue of our time." And perhaps it is. This book explores what it means for our economic system and our economic results to be "fair." Does it mean that everyone has a fair shot? Does it mean that everyone gets the same amount? Does it mean the government can assert the authority to forcibly take from the successful and give to the poor? Is government supposed to be Robin Hood determining who gets what? Or should the market decide that? The surprising answer: nations with free market systems that allow people to get ahead based on their own merit and achievement are the fairest of them all.

Who s the Fairest of Them All Defining and Subverting the Female Beauty Ideal in Fairy Tale Narratives and Films Through Grotesque Aesthetics Book Description :

This thesis seeks to explore the ways in which women and beauty are depicted in the fairy tales of Giambattista Basile, the Grimm Brothers, and 21st century fairy tale films. A dominant beauty ideal in the genre has established a splitting of female characters into strict dichotomies that reinforce beauty and good moral behaviour while also propagating antagonistic female relationships. The use of spectacle to highlight the physical rewards of beauty and the violent punishments of ugly women have created a stable pattern in the genre that is maintained regardless of time period or context. It is the aim of this thesis to pursue an aesthetic approach to the tales that focuses on the beauty ideal, anxiety, spectacle, and the grotesque, to explore the ways in which this seemingly static genre has been able to challenge the impossible ideals of beauty it overtly emphasizes.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall Book Description :

Jason was 2-years old when we brought his brother, Dawson, home from the hospital. I had fallen in love with mothering my first child. "Honestly, how much tougher could rearing two children instead of one be?" I thought to myself as I lay the tightly wound bundle on the couch. Jason timidly tiptoed over to see the new baby. I pulled the receiving blanket back from Dawson's face as Jason stared in wonder at his little brother. "So far, so good," I whispered tentatively to my husband, Craig, as he hung back by the door. "This won't be so difficult," I said confidently as I tried to bolster my sagging self-assurance. "Lots of women have two babies in two years. We will be fine." Like hollow promises my words fell onto our hardwood floor. Neither Craig nor I believed a single word I had said. Sadly, we both knew better. Although I have now reared two sons and launched them off into the adult world, I have not forgotten how I, as a new mom, felt. I loved God with all of my heart. My single-minded desire was to train my boys in the Lord. Without question my goal was to see my boys reach an early decision for Christ and to live for Him all the days of their lives. However, my own insecurities surfaced; I struggled with feelings of inadequacy. I have never forgotten the anxiety of those early days of mothering as I fought to catch my breath and find my bearings. Life seemed to be spinning wildly out of control and sucking me into the vortex of its madness Those deeply imbedded memories of my greatest joy intermingled with fretfulness and fear compel me to write a Bible study geared toward mothers of children of all ages. Mothering is just plain tough. There, I said it. It is full of twists and turns, ups and downs, jubilation and tribulation, ecstasy and insanity. I am sure you can relate Moms are on-call 24-hours a day, with no sick leave and no vacation days. On some days rearing children is closely akin to herding cats.

There is nothing that brings hope than having someone who has gone through the same struggle as you tell you "I know how you feel, I've been there and you're going to make it". The 12 testimonials in "Mira Mira, on the wall" (African accent for Mirror Mirror - a metaphor for self-reflection) are "the voices of hope" from women from Africa and America who have experienced difficult struggles in their teenage years. The study offers a "light at the end of the tunnel" for young girls who have struggled or are struggling with age appropriate issues like low self esteem, relational problems - to the most pervasive ones like drugs & drinking, teen pregnancy, sexual abuse, prostitution, and pornography. Some of the cultural context of these women might be different but their compelling and universal stories will pull at your heart string as you find common ground in their struggles. It will also inspire and give you hope as you share in their victories. You do not have to feel like you're alone in your struggle! The testimonial questions, author's comments, scripture readings and exercises in this devotional bible study give you the opportunity for personal reflection and help you work through your issues personally or with others. It will renew and strengthen your faith, help you cope with sad feelings, and give you tools to handle conflicts.

Mirror Mirror who is the Fairest of Them All Beyond Zero Tolerance Book Description :

The phenomenon of overrepresentation is defined as a specific racial/ethnic group being disproportionately represented in comparison to their overall presence in the general population. As such, there is an overrepresentation in discipline referrals and suspensions documented specifically with students of color, lower SES students, students who identify as LGTBQI, and students with disabilities in public K-12 schools. For a growing number of students the enforcement of zero tolerance policies, which operate on a punitive continuum, often leads to removing youth either temporarily or permanently from school. As such, zero tolerance practices marginalize young people and push them toward a greater probability of delinquency and crime; they in effect form a school-to-prison pipeline. To stop fueling the pipeline with young cohorts of students, a restorative justice (RJ) approach to traditional discipline is implemented. However, sometimes even after RJ program implementation, these students continue to be disciplined more often than their White peers. Even after controlling for gender, socioeconomic status (SES), and ability, disproportionally for students of color continues. Hence, educator racism and bias are cited as causes (Alexander, 2010; Civil Rights Project, 2000; Cross, 2001; Elgart, 2016; Equal Justice Society, 2016; Hines-Datiri & Carter Andrews, 2017; Irving & Hudley, 2005; Kendall, 2006; Monroe, 2005; Noguera, 2003; Skiba, Simmons, Ritter, Gibb, Rausch, Cuadrado, & Chung, 2008; Tate, 1997; Vavrus & Cole, 2002; Wadhwa, 2016). The findings of this study indicate that a RJ approach to discipline is successful in lowering teacher-written referrals and improving school climate and attendance rates. Participants described their school system, which was in the third year of RJ implementation school wide, as successful when RJ approaches to discipline were utilized, but very challenging and needing improvement. Teacher participants demonstrated an understanding th

Fairest Book Description :

A singular, beautifully written coming-of-age memoir of a Filipino boy with albinism whose story travels from an immigrant childhood to Harvard to a gender transition and illuminates the illusions of race, disability, and gender Fairest is a memoir about a precocious boy with albinism, a "sun child" from a rural Philippine village, who would grow up to become a woman in America. Coping with the strain of parental neglect and the elusive promise of U.S. citizenship, Talusan found childhood comfort from her devoted grandmother, a grounding force as she was treated by others with special preference or public curiosity. As an immigrant to the United States, Talusan came to be perceived as white. An academic scholarship to Harvard provided access to elite circles of privilege but required Talusan to navigate through the complex spheres of race, class, sexuality, and her place within the gay community. She emerged as an artist and an activist questioning the boundaries of gender. Talusan realized she did not want to be confined to a prescribed role as a man, and transitioned to become a woman, despite the risk of losing a man she deeply loved. Throughout her journey, Talusan shares poignant and powerful episodes of desirability and love that will remind readers of works such as Call Me By Your Name and Giovanni's Room. Her evocative reflections will shift our own perceptions of love, identity, gender, and the fairness of life.
