Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book discusses the position of women in the Native American, African, Shinto, Jaina, Zoroastrian, Sikh, and Baha'i faiths for the first time in a single volume, and evolves a conceptual framework within which their positions could be comprehensively considered. The contributing scholars provide an enlarged database for a more thorough discussion of the questions pertaining to women and religion in general, and simultaneously advance the theoretical frontiers in women's studies. Religion and Women belongs to a trilogy about women and world religions edited by Arvind Sharma the first and third volumes being respectively, Women in World Religions and Today's Woman in World Religions.

"This book provides an in-depth look at how a variety of lesser-known religious traditions view women. The essays are well crafted, providing a great deal of new information on the status of women in these traditions." -- Christopher Chapple, Loyola Marymount University

Arvind Sharma is Professor at McGill University. He is the editor of the two other volumes in this trilogy, Women in World Religions and the upcoming Today's Woman in World Religions, both published by SUNY Press.
