About this item

Paludi, an author and consultant in campus violence, workplace violence, bullying, sexual harassment, and diversity, and Ellens, a retired philosophy and psychology professor and theologian and pastor, bring together 24 chapters on feminism in religions like Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Islam, Judaism, Sikhism, and Taoism. Scholars working in religion, psychology, and other fields in the US, Australia, and Brazil consider whether faith in the Bible is compatible with feminism; feminist egalitarianism in prehistory and early history; feminist perspectives from the Hebrew Bible; women's history in religious literature and women's ordination; the possibility that Tamar, daughter of David, wrote narratives in the Bible; women in the Quran; female deities in Hinduism; womanliness in John; feminism in the Eastern Orthodox Church; and the mystical feminine in Baha'i scriptures. Other essays discuss martial rape and warfare in polytheistic Greek and monotheistic Israelite views; women and mysticism; feminine spirituality; feminism and the pro-life/pro-choice debate; the feminine in the Brazilian Christian religions; faith and feminism and mythology and archetype; feminist, womanist, and Mujerista theologies; gender in the Tao Te Ching and I Ching; American Muslim women and faith-inspired activism; special women in the Quran; and feminism and the future of religion.
