Provides a unique means of access to the religious lives of women in Eastern cultures. By engaging directly with Islamic, Hindu, Buddhist, Chinese, and Japanese sacred texts bearing on the role of women, readers will find themselves pondering the mysteries of sexual complementarity and antagonism. Explains the cultural and historical background of each passage and suggests its meaning for present-day feminists. "From the creation story to levitical text on menstruation, to biblical matriarchs, Carmody wrestles with the text, the context, and the implications of 24 passages in readable and down-to-earth style." "Masterful"!Carmody, Denise L. is the author of 'Religious Woman: Contemporary Reflections on Eastern Texts' with ISBN 9780824510657 and ISBN 0824510658.
