"Rita Gross offers readers an amazing example of a lifelong, ongoing commitment to feminist thinking and practice. Her visionary insistence that the path to ending patriarchal domination must lead us beyond gender is a revolutionary paradigm shift, one that can lead to greater freedom for everyone."--bell hooks

"In terma (treasure) traditions, texts appear in the world, mysteriously, at the precise moment when they will have the greatest benefit. Rita Gross's posthumously published book, Buddhism beyond Gender--set to be released by Shambhala Publications at a time when clarity around gender is needed more than ever--may be just such a treasure."--Lion's Roar

"In Buddhism Beyond Gender, Rita Gross provides her final and most candid assessment of the state of gender dynamics within Buddhism... This book feels as much as a scholarly culmination as it does a call to arms."--Canadian Journal of Buddhist Studies

"The Buddhist scriptures tell us that we are neither male nor female--that gender is an illusion, and that clinging to it just brings suffering. In this, her last book, Rita Gross, one of the founding figures in the feminist study of religion, explains why this is so. One of the few academics to speak from an insider's perspective, Professor Gross devoted most of her life to challenging the structures of patriarchy and oppression in the Buddhist tradition--to 'repairing' the tradition and making it more just. Buddhism beyond Gender is Rita Gross at her very best: clear, direct, insightful, and uncompromising. The book is not just an important contribution to Buddhism and gender studies, it is a practical guidebook on how to see through the fictions of gender identity and free oneself from the prison of gender roles so as to lead a more liberated life."--Jos� Ignacio Cabez�n, Dalai Lama Professor, University of California, Santa Barbara
