Editorial Reviews

Review

"The questions Faure raises are important ones: Is Buddhism a tool of liberation or oppression for women? What might a more egalitarian Buddhist practice consist of? Faure approaches his subject in his usual thorough manner. The wealth of historical, sociological, and cultural references may be daunting to some readers, but those who persevere will be rewarded."--Martine Batchelor, Tricycle

From the Inside Flap

"Well organized and very well written, Faure's book is unique. It will certainly stir up controversy in Buddhist studies and in American Buddhism. The style is perfect: brief, punchy, to the point."--Steven Collins, University of Chicago --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
