The Annual Review of Women in World Religions: Volume VI
The Annual Review of Women in World Religions is polymethodic, interdisciplinary, and multitraditional in its approach to the study of women and religion. It not only allows the comparative dimension to appear in bolder relief, but also helps to establish a dialogue between the two solitudes of humanistic and social scientific studies in the field. The book encourages women and men of all beliefs to participate in the on-going dialogue that it represents and promotes.
Volume VI includes the following contributions: Reinhold Niebuhr, Sin and Contextuality: A Re-evaluation of the Feminist Critique by Jennifer S. Baichwal; Silent Resistance: A Hindu Child Widow’s Lived Experience by Shampa Mazumdar and Sanjoy Mazumdar; Gender and Ritual in South-East China by Samantha Anderson; The Rise of the Mapuche Moon Priestess in Southern Chile by Ana Mariella Bacigalupo; and Feminist Historiography, Patriarchal Ideology and the Future of Sisterhood: A Review Essay of Sisters in Arms: Catholic Nuns Through Two Millennia by Jo Ann Kay McNamara by Julie B. Miller.
