This book belongs in the library of every feminist of faith!
on March 1, 2000
Plaskow's work is especially relevant to Jewish feminists, but anyone who is interested in reconciling an ancient path with a modern sense of feminist justice would do well to read this book. Plaskow does not reject tradition, nor does she make apologies and excuses for injust parts of it (like the demonization of the "niddah"), but rather looks deeply into the past and present to find, nurture, and embrace what is right, and remedy what is wrong. An excellent read!
