Imperialism in the Roman Republic Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How has a legal tradition determined by men affected the lives of women? What are the traditional Jewish views of marriage, divorce, sexuality, contraception, abortion? Women and Jewish Law gives contemporary readers access to the central texts of the Jewish religious tradition on issues of special concern to women. Combining a historical overview with a thoughtful feminist critique, this pathbreaking study points the way for “informed change” in the status of women in Jewish life.

Table of Contents

Women and the mitzvot — Marriage — Divorce — The agunah and the yevamah — Sexuality and marital relations — Niddah: laws of the menstruant — Sexuality outside of marriage: incest, adultery, promiscuity, and lesbianism — Procreation and contraception — Abortion — Rape.
