Non, c'est non : Petit manuel d'autodéfense à l'usage de toutes les femmes qui en ont marre de se faire emmerder sans rien dire

En tant que femmes, nous sommes tous les jours les cibles d'interpellations, de harcèlement, d'agressions verbales, physiques ou sexuelles plus ou moins graves, plus ou moins violentes, au travail, dans l'espace public et privé. Souvent nous ne savons pas remark réagir, remark dire non, et remark faire comprendre que, lorsque nous disons non, c'est non.

Mots choisis : français-chinois

L’idée de ce livre m’est venue des difficultés que j’ai rencontrées pour faire le bon choix des termes les plus appropriés lorsqu’on veut faire concorder deux langues aussi différentes que le Français et le Chinois. Cet ouvrage a donc été conçu pour remédier à ces difficultés en proposant une présentation sous forme d’un recueil de mots classés par sujet.

Les passions ordinaires

• description : Les émotions ne sont pas spontanées, mais rituellement organisées. Reconnues en soi et signifiées aux autres, elles mobilisent un vocabulaire et des mouvements précis du corps qui diffèrent selon les cultures. C'est ce que montre David Le Breton dans cette anthropologie des émotions, où il examine, entre autres, le statut du corps dans l. a. communique, les ritualités du regard, ou encore le métier de comédien, qui offre une étonnante representation de l. a. façon dont les hommes se saisissent des signes pour vivre et donner à voir leurs émotions.

Example text

Scales, furniture and records were hurled into the river. The tax office director was dragged from his house but left unharmed; crowds instead forced the local well-to-do to give them money. Only one leader – Paga, nickname Pededague – was arrested, for having attempted to force the mayor to hand over the keys to the town. The others simply melted back into the anonymity of the crowd. The Limouxins were probably well aware of the opening of the EstatesGeneral, although there is no evidence that they made the link between the gathering of the élite of the three orders at Versailles and their own actions the same day.

Occitans were conscious of the ancient linguistic and territorial division which separated them from the Catalan communities just across the linguistic border in the Roussillon, and occasionally still described themselves as living on a frontier, which they had until 1659. The southernmost Occitan parish, Leucate, fulminated against the inhabitants of the nearby Catalan village of St-Laurent-de-la-Salanque and asked why they had to pay to fish in the étang of Salses while the privileged Catalans did not.

61 Communities were aware, too, of the consequences of altering riverbeds. 62 The solution was most commonly seen in replanting. 64 Indeed, in this region of France, the cahiers of the Third Estate consistently asserted that it was the lack of foresight of the seigneurs which was the real cause of wood shortage and high prices. The small-town bourgeois who dominated the drawing up of the Third Estate cahier for the sénéchausée of Limoux similarly called for the development of schemes to encourage reforestation.
