Feminism and World Religions
Offers a nuanced treatment of seven of the world's religions from a feminist perspective. All contributors are women, and all are insiders in both the academic world and that of the religious communities they discuss. They examine the interaction of feminism and Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. An introduction overviews intellectual trends that have informed the transition to an insider perspective. These trends include Romanticism, ecumenism, Marxism, and deconstruction.
