Description : In 1978 Domestic Violence was not a recognized criminal offence nor a term used or understood by most Americans. There were no shelters or services for these victims and their children. The very first shelters were in England and little was known about them. Unscathed by this lack of information or workable data Kathryn had only to hear by accident about the Shelter movement in England when the “light bulb” went off and her mission was confirmed. Against all odds and with the threat of committing “professional suicide” she set out to do that which she had no earthly idea how to accomplish, establish a shelter for battered women and their children. With the encouragement of her women’s organization, The Daughter’s of Penelope the impossible became a reality. Penelope House opened on March 19, 1979 as the first Battered Women’s shelter in Alabama and the fifth such shelter in the United States.

In a rural community on the Alabama River, she learns to survive the many hardships that her family endures.

Description : Between 1890 and 1920, middle-class white and black Alabama women created many clubs and organizations that took them out of the home and provided them with roles in the public sphere and spearheaded the drive to eliminate child labor, worked to improve the educational system, upgraded the jails and prisons, and created reform schools for both boys and girls. Thomas's book is the first of its kind to focus on the reform activities of women during the Progressive Era, and the first to consider the southern woman and all the organizations of middle-class black and white women in the South and particularly in Alabama

Description : The history of Alabama has been told, but most often in terms of white men and their politics and economics. Now a more complex story of the state is emerging from the shadows of history in a new book that investigates the place of women from the perspective of race, class, and gender. The writers reexamine the roles of both black and white women as missionaries during Reconstruction, as reformers and suffrage leaders in the Progressive era, and as members of the state legislature in the 20th century.

Description : Excerpt from Alabama Women and Their Employers, 1938-1939 Although institutions of higher learning render their major service in the classroom, such institutions have a responsibility and a field of service that extend beyond the campus. In this larger sphere there is an opportunity for leadership and for service in matters of state-wide concern. It is fitting, therefore, that Alabama College should from time to time publish creative studies as its contributions to the field of general knowledge, which are of immediate interest and value to the women of the State.

Description : In Alabama Getaway Allen Tullos explores the recent history of one of the nation's most conservative states to reveal its political imaginary—the public shape of power, popular imagery, and individual opportunity. From Alabama's largely ineffectual politicians to its miserly support of education, health care, cultural institutions, and social services, Tullos examines why the state appears to be stuck in repetitive loops of uneven development and debilitating habits of judgment. The state remains tied to fundamentalisms of religion, race, gender, winner-take-all economics, and militarism enforced by punitive and defensive responses to criticism. Tullos traces the spectral legacy of George Wallace, ponders the roots of anti-egalitarian political institutions and tax structures, and challenges Birmingham native Condoleezza Rice's use of the civil rights struggle to justify the war in Iraq. He also gives due coverage to the state's black citizens who with a minority of whites have sustained a movement for social justice and democratic inclusion. As Alabama competes for cultural tourism and global industries like auto manufacturing and biomedical research, Alabama Getaway asks if the coming years will see a transformation of the “Heart of Dixie.”
