Woe to the Women--the Bible Tells Me So: The Bible, Female Sexuality & the Law
WOE TO THE WOMEN takes up where Elizabeth Cady Stanton's THE WOMAN'S BIBLE left off.In these critical days when fundamentalists are trying to unite church and state, it behooves thoughtful women and men to "know thine enemy." Lucidly argued, concise and thorough, WOE TO THE WOMEN documents the bible's punitive, antediluvian rules and attitudes toward women.WOE TO THE WOMEN exposes the bible's harmful stereotypes about women as sin-inciting temptresses and their treatment as male property. This exposť examines biblical teachings about women's "nature," prostitution, sexual assault and incest, so-called uncleanliness, marriage, motherhood, divorce and adultery, grooming, abortion, and homosexuality, as well as "macho" standards for men.Delightfully illustrated by Alma Cuebas, it contains a valuable compendium of more than 200 sexist bible passages. WOE TO THE WOMEN is an essential guide for the reader who is too busy (or too non-masochistic) to study the bible.WOE TO THE WOMEN is a timely warning that the bible is a handbook for the subjugation of women, and that the only true barrier standing between it and women is a secular government.
