The publication of The Woman's Bible in 1895 and 1898 represented the feminist pioneer's last strike at the roots of the ideology behind her gender's subordinate role in society. In keeping with her characteristic radical individualism, Stanton attacks religious orthodoxy on a political rather than scholarly basis. This clarion call to action consists of a book-by-book examination of the Bible, placing events in their historical context, interpreting passages as both allegory and fact, and comparing them with the myths of other cultures. It endures as an extraordinary document because of the questions it addresses, the topics it covers, and its still-resonant sincerity. Unabridged republication of the classic two-volume edition of 1895 and 1898.

Review: The Woman's Bible: A Classic Feminist Perspective

User Review  - Nikki - Goodreads

My honest opinion? BS. Even as a woman, this is nonsense. Yes, women have been oppressed throughout the ages, biblical eras included, but what I remember reading of this is just unsound. Eisegesis with an agenda. Boo. Bye. Read full review
