Product description

This book combines spiritual, social and analytical perspectives to explore topics central to women's development: spirituality, women's bodies, cultural constructions of women's sexuality in language, sexual ethics, the sexual contract in politics and at work, and the relation between nature and culture. It is Tomm's deeply held conviction that women need to bring a vital spirituality to feminist social criticism in order to resolve these issues and increase their power to promote social justice and ecological balance. Tomm embraces a vast store of knowledge from diverse sources, including Buddhist, shamanist and feminist resources. In a move away from abstract theorising, she explicitly connects theory with realities lived by women.
