9781573926966: The Woman's Bible (Great Minds)

American feminist leader and suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton was also an outspoken critic of the Bible because the scriptures often portray women as inferior and have been used by men to justify unequal treatment of women in society. The 1870 revision of the Authorized English Version of the Bible prepared by an all-male committee from the Church of England so greatly dissatisfied Stanton that in response she courageously decided to compile a commentary by prominent feminists on the many Bible passages that refer to women. The result was The Woman's Bible, a fascinating book that explores, among other things, the documentation that Jesus believed in equal rights for men and women; the ignorance, arrogance, and hypocrisy on the part of the church hierarchy; and the slaughter of women who were slaves, wives of drunkards, or were believed to be witches.
The insight that Stanton and her fellow commentators provide into biblical writings and into the minds of women of her era is enlightening and serves as an inspiration to today's feminist movement.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) was a leading light of the women's rights movement in the late nineteenth century. Besides The Woman's Bible she also helped to compile the History of Woman Suffrage. With Lucretia Mott she organized the first women's rights convention at Seneca Falls, NY, and with Susan B. Anthony founded the National Woman Suffrage Movement.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Why is it more ridiculous for woman to protest against her present status in the Old and New Testament, in the ordinances and discipline of the church, than in the statutes and constitution of the state? (Elizabeth Cady Stanton)
