Women's Ways of knowing charts the development of women's sense of self, voice and mind. Based on in-depth interviews with 135 ordinary women, the book describes the ways of knowing that women have 'cultivated and learned to value'. In their book, Mary Field Belenky, Blythe McVicker Clinchy, Nancy Rule Goldberger and Jill Mattuck Tarule examine women's ways of knowing from five different perspectives; silence, recieved knowledge, subjective knowledge, procedural knowledge and constructed knowledge. It is from these perspectives that women view thier reality and draw conclusions about truth, knowledge and authority. We are shown through vivid examples how women's concepts of themselves and thier ways of knowing are intricately intertwined. Drawing from the research of theorists like Carol Gilligan, Lawrence Kohlberg, William Perry and Nancy Chodorow, the authors primarily focus their developmental perspective on the two institutions that are predominantly devoted to human development; the family and the school, both of which are shown to hinder and promote women's development. 'This is as much a book about pain and anger and static lives as it is about hope and lives in blossom. It is also about the 'roar that lies on the other side of silence' where ordinary women find their voice and use it to gain control over their lives.' Women's Ways of Knowing, p.4.
I looked at a few VO books to help my career. I was glad that I picked this one. I have read many books on acting and I have found them to be difficult to the novice or someone considering a VO career. I have been trying hard to break into this career in Charlotte, NC. This book is a very introductory approach to what is expected of a voice actor. I also learned marketing techniques and how to produce a good demo. I had the talent; I just needed some help. I showed this book to my acting instructor and she is interested in using the text as well. I will use it as I teach students. After I cut my demo at a radio station, my instructor told me that it was the best work she has heard from me. I am proud of myself. Again, this text tells you what to expect and doesn¿t fill you with false dreams or realities. It is also very soft on the ego. I recommend it as a starting text to see if you would like to begin a career in voice acting. I was the best twenty bucks I have ever spent. Look for me in the big markets soon. I know have the confidence that it takes. I also had the talent, just didn¿t believe until this book gave me the push that I needed. Read it at least three times so the information soaks in.
