Emmy(r) Award-winning Judge Cristina Perez, of Cristina's Court, imparts ten "laws" to empower women. With her quick wit, charm, and genuine compassion, Judge Perez has not only redefined the role of intimidating TV court judge, but also gained the trust and respect from a new generation of young women. In It's All About the Woman Who Wears It, Judge Perez lends the same candid voice, humor, and understanding that she applies in Cristina's Court to ten impactful laws. Together, these laws can teach women that the real essence of being sexy comes from a strong sense of identity. They address the problems women commonly face that prevent them from realizing their full potential for happiness. Sharing personal experiences that have made her the confident woman she is today as well as the many real-life lessons imparted from her cases, Judge Cristina's words will resound among this new generation of women who take a no-nonsense approach to life and, above all else, want to be true to themselves.

Justice Performed: Courtroom TV Shows and the Theaters of Popular Law is the first study of the reality TV genre to trace its theatrical legacy, connecting the phenomenon of the daytime TV shows to a long history of theatrical trials staged to educate audiences in pedagogies of citizenship. It examines how judge TV fulfills part of law's performative function: that of providing a participatory spectacle the public can recognize as justice. Since it debuted in 1981 with The People's Court, which made famous its star jurist, Judge Joseph A. Wapner, dozens of judges have made the move to television. Unlike the demographics in actual courts, most TV judges are non-white men and women hailing from diverse cultural and racial backgrounds. These judges charge their decisions with personal preferences and cultural innuendos, painting a very different picture of what justice looks like. Drawing on interviews with TV judges, producers and production staff, as well as the author's experience as a studio audience member, the book scrutinizes the performativity of the genre, the needs it meets and the inherent ideological biases about race, gender and civic instruction.

“You have to…play by the rules so you can get to the top and change things.” -- Sheryl Sandberg A landmark portrait of women, men, and power in a transformed world Men have been the dominant sex since, well, the dawn of mankind. But Hanna Rosin was the first to notice that this long-held truth is, astonishingly, no longer true. At this unprecedented moment, by almost every measure, women are no longer gaining on men: They have pulled decisively ahead. And “the end of men”—the title of Rosin’s Atlantic cover story on the subject—has entered the lexicon as dramatically as Betty Friedan’s “feminine mystique,” Simone de Beauvoir’s “second sex,” Susan Faludi’s “backlash,” and Naomi Wolf’s “beauty myth” once did. In this landmark book, Rosin reveals how this new state of affairs is radically shifting the power dynamics between men and women at every level of society, with profound implications for marriage, sex, children, work, and more. With wide-ranging curiosity and insight unhampered by assumptions or ideology, Rosin shows how the radically different ways men and women today earn, learn, spend, couple up—even kill—has turned the big picture upside down. And in The End of Men she helps us see how, regardless of gender, we can adapt to the new reality and channel it for a better future.

The very diversity that America was founded on now seems to be turning on itself. Instead of seeing our individual differences as a source of national strength, we’re dispatching them as daggers in our American identity. America is steadily splitting along political, gender, color and cultural lines, battling it out over controversial issues like racism, immigration, terrorism, and even patriotism and American pride. What is the verdict for a country of citizens who don blinders and boxing gloves in the face of opposing points of view? What type of “American Identity” will we leave for the next generation? In Red, White, and Latina 3-time Emmy Award winner, 2-time author, entertainment personality, and proud American Latina, Cristina Pérez dissects these issues and proposes a new unified outlook for America based on common sense, common values, and common ground. She delivers a no-holds-barred and non-biased look inside the most heated conversations in America today, examining the headlines, evidence, and hearsay, before delivering her verdict for each one.

It's not that he's just not that into you—it's that there's not enough of him. Using a combination of demographics, game theory, and number crunching, financial and tech journalist Jon Birger explains America's curiously lopsided dating and marriage market—and what every single, college-educated, heterosexual woman needs to know. Call it the man deficit. The shortage of college-educated men is not just a big-city phenomenon frustrating women in New York and L.A. Among young college grads, there are four women for every three mennationwide, except in those pockets, like Silicon Valley, where the economy is driven by a primarily male job market. And this numbers game has wider implications. Birger shows how this unequal ratio explains the college and post-college hookup culture; the decline in marriage rates; even the seemingly paradoxical problem that the more attractive the woman is, the more difficult it can be for her to find a partner. He reaches back to explore the origins of the college gender gap—a combination of the pill, Title IX, and developmental differences between boys and girls. Then there's what to do about it, from what college to attend (any with strong sciences and math), to where to hang out (in New York, try a firemen's bar), to where to live (Colorado, San Jose, Seattle), to embracing the power of the marriage ultimatum—it works.
