Product Description

The second-class status, if not the outright oppression, of women in history has often been legitimated using negative visions rooted in the theologies, ideas, and images of world religions. Do the world's religious traditions possess authentic, sexism-transcending, yet concrete, life-giving elements? Are they redeemable from structures of patriarchal domination that cause many women to judge them unsalvageable? After Patriarchy reveals the increasing globalization of women's visions as they look anew at those structures, including the religious one, in which human beings live. Moving beyond cant and stereotype, these critical essays will challenge any inquirer. More importantly, they reveal how far-reaching the transformations of world religions must be in order to retrieve a liberation core that will be emancipatory for all.
