Here at GreenWorks, we know that trees contribute to a better quality of life. Trees provide oxygen, improve air and water quality, reduce stormwater management costs, and offer important habitat to urban wildlife. In addition, studies show that they promote greater physical activity, reduce stress and improve mental health, and even lead to reduced crime rates.
Lisa Unger Baskin Collection – Duke University Libraries “The unifying thread is that women have always been productive and working people and this history essentially has been hidden.”
The Lisa Unger Baskin Collection arrived at Rubenstein Library in April 2015. Carefully assembled over forty-five years by noted bibliophile, activist, and collector Lisa Unger Baskin, the collection is a transformative body of material documenting women at work. In Baskin’s own words,

A linguist explains how Trump uses lies to divert attention from the “big truths.”
President Donald Trump has hacked the media.
As Vox’s Ezra Klein argued recently, the press is in a lose-lose situation — and we all know it. Trump thrives on opposition, and often the media plays right into his hands, feverishly chasing every lie and half-truth he utters or tweets.
A MUST READ: E. R. A. a short primer for the monstrously long process of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
The introduction I’ve added to this text explains some of the analogies I see between Victor Frankenstein’s creature and the legal corpus of laws that apply to women in the United States. Those analogies occurred to me in this 200th year following the initial publication of Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein.
Thank you, SheVille, for the very strong July 20, 2018, article on the reasons we need the Equal Rights Amendment. I’ve sent the link for the article to several people I know, and I added the reference to the article to this latest draft of my handmade book on the process of ratifying the E.R.A. I finished making the book before I saw the article, so I didn’t include your article in the resources I used for the book project.

Gloria Steinem is one of the most legendary social-justice organizers and writers in American history. Having fought at the forefront of the women’s movement since the 1960s, Steinem, now 84, has hardly slowed down. She’s been an advocate for the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, and this month, her life’s work became the subject of an off-Broadway play.
Produced in Hollywood, this is a true story of a woman who built a $100M luxury fashion empire, defeated cancer, got business hijacked by the KGB, fled homeland with a KGB spy’s help and became the Ambassador of Made In Italy.
