Publisher Comments:

Rita M. Gross offers an engaging survey of the changes feminism has wrought in religious ideas, beliefs, and practices around the world, as well as in the study and understanding of religion itself.

Synopsis:

How has feminism changed the world's religions and the way we study them? Feminism and Religion provides a comprehensive--at times provocative--answer to this important question. Distinguished religion scholar Rita Gross explores how the feminist social vision transformed religious thought, ritual, leadership, and institutions around the world, from Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, and Hinduism to new religious movements like feminist spirituality.
