Women and Religion

by Fatmagul Berktay - £12.99  Black Rose Books (1998)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781551641027 | ISBN 10: 155164102x

While taking women's subjectivities and their reasons for their taking to religion into account, this book focuses mainly on the functions of religion, the way it relates to women; its contribution to gender differences; and the status of women within it, particularly the relationship between gender on the one hand, and power and social control on the other. The author examines why, in all three monotheisms the gender of God is male and what the impact this is on our thoughts vis-a-vis gender definitions, the nature of authority and power structures. Undertaken as well, is an exposition of contemporary Fundamentalism in both its Protestant and Islamic variants (in America and Iran).
