Violence Against Women in Contemporary World Religions: Roots and Cures
Daniel C. Maguire, Sa'diyya Shaikh
Pilgrim Press, 2007 - Religion - 248 pages
It is no secret that world religions are often the purveyors of misogyny. However, those same religions also contain the cures for the very misogyny they have created and abetted. The contributors to this volume, all of whom are experts in their religious traditions, mine their religion's lost moral treasures and marshal them against the violence of sexism.
