9780199006199: Women and Religious Traditions

Women and Religious Traditions uses a critical feminist lens to explore the roles and interactions of women with major world faith traditions. Within each particular tradition, the text examines the history and status of women, family structures, sexuality, and social change, as well as texts, rituals, and interpretations by and for women.

Thirteen experts contribute nine chapters and five case studies, including a new case study on women in Chinese traditions. This third edition builds on the strengths of the first two, with the addition of lived religion content in each chapter, an expanded introduction to the study of women and religion, new research on Buddhist nuns, and up-to-date material on women's current political position in Islamic countries.

Review:

"Excellent, cutting-edge scholarship, compellingly written and made accessible to undergraduates. . . . This is a top-notch book."
--Michele Murray, Bishop's University

"Extremely readable. . . . An excellent introduction to the topic. . . . The chapters do a very good job introducing students to the religious tradition in question, and the structure of each chapter, despite the different authors, helps the student of comparative religion to analyze the
information."
--Ariana Patey, Memorial University of Newfoundland
