Right-Wing Women in Chile
When over five thousand women took to the streets of Santiago to protest Salvador Allende's Popular Unity government on December 1, 1971, their March of the Empty Pots and Pans signaled the beginning of a mass opposition movement and prompted the later formation of Feminine Power, a multi-class organization that played a critical role in paving the way for the military coup in 1973. Drawing on extensive interviews with leaders and participants, Margaret Power tells the stony of these right-wing women, examining their motives, the tactics they employed, and the impact of their ideas and activity on Chilean society and politics.The ability of the right to exploit established ideas about gender, Power argues, was key to the opposition's success, and she explores how conservatives appealed to women as wives and mothers to mobilize them. Power also pays attention to the earlier history of these efforts, including the formation of Women's Action of Chile in 1963, and to the support provided by the U.S. government. The epilogue examines right-wing women's reactions to the arrest of Augusto Pinochet in 1998 and their role in the elections of 2000. By focusing on the women who opposed Allende and supported Pinochet, this book offers a fresh look at the complex dynamics of Chilean politics in the last half of the twentieth century.
Sundial and Stardial Pendants
Technology is awesome, but can we trust it? How can we be sure that our cell phones aren't recording our brain waves and transmitting our ideas to evil corporations? How can we be sure that our watches aren't silently recording our pulses and sending the data to Big Food so they know when to advertise those juicy bacon cheeseburgers on TV and ruin our diet plans? Yeah, see, now you're paranoid too. We've taken the mirrors out of our bathrooms to avoid that classic horror movie moment, too. We recommend you do the same. Preventative paranoia is the key to success. Part of our plan is eschewing traditional watches for the sundial. Inspired by designs from Babylonia, Egypt, the Celts of Northern Europe, the Mayans and Incas and Aztecs, we've found the most imaginative and accurate wearable sundials anywhere. Instructions for reading your new sundial are included. Batteries, however, are not. They're not needed! Who needs batteries to sense the rhythms of the solar system? Guaranteed to work as long as the sun rises... and we don't want to think about the day that stops happening. How the Sundial works... On a sunny day, suspend the sundial by its black satin cord. Through a tiny hole, a thin ray of sunshine will illuminate a number on the inside of the dial showing the time of day. This Aquitaine sundial was named after Eleanor of Aquitaine, who gave one to King Henry II of England so Henry would know when to return from the hunt for their love trysts. (One must always be timely for love trysts. Tryst us on that one.) How the Stardial works... Set the middle wheel to the month, hold the dial upside down, and sight the North Star through the center hole. Move the top of the dial's arm to align with the uppermost stars of the Big Dipper, and read the time on the inner dial where the arm crosses the hour mark! Star dials were first used in the 15th century by navigators and are extremely accurate because they are based on the North Star. Product Features Pewter sundial & stardial ring pendants Tell the time without electricity, gears, or other technology Modeled after historical timepieces Approximately 1.3 inches (3.3 cm) in diameter Comes with a 30" black silk cord (or supply your own chain)

Retro iPhone Case
"We remember the very first time we saw a cell phone. It was summer sleepover camp and we were in the backwoods of Maine, far from civilization. (Or it least it seemed that way!) On the first day of camp, the adults were going over all the important details, including that if we had an emergency and needed to call for an ambulance Mr. Jones had a mobile phone. And sure enough, he lifted this... brick of a device. Our eyes were like dinner plates. This was a phone. A MOBILE PHONE. Whoa. If you'd like to relive the days of having the ultimate status symbol, slip your iPhone into this chunky, brick-like case. It's not going to fit in your pocket or your purse, but if your backpack or briefcase is big enough, you might have some luck. Don't worry, though, the Retro iPhone case still allows you to access all of your 21st-century features. We're definitely picking up one of these to use at 80s costume parties.
