After Patriarchy: Feminist Transformations of the World Religions
After Patriarchy: Feminist Transformations of the World Religions
Description

From the Jacket :

"One thing is clear: A post-patriarchal age, even if only as an ideal to be approximated, is worthy of commitment by men as well as by women." - From the Introduction.

The second-class statue, 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 liberating core that will be emancipatory for all.

Contributors include Delores S. Williams, on black women's surrogacy experience and Christian redemption; Lina Gupta, on the figure of Kali in Hinduism; Riffat Hassan on post-patriarchal Islam; Rita M. Gross, on Buddhism after patriarchy; Judith Plaskow, on a feminization of Israel; Paula M. Cooey, on reconstructions of Christian doctrine; lnes Marie Talamanez, on images of the feminine in Apache tradition; and Emily Culpepper, on her spiritual journey as a postmodern free-thinker.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
