Roots and Cures

ISBN/Prod. Code: 978-0-8298-1811-6      
It is no secret that world religions are often the purveyors of misogyny. Those same religions, however, also contain the cures for the violence against women that they have created and abetted.

The contributors to this volume, all of whom are authorities in their religious traditions, mine the lost moral treasures of their religions and marshal them against the violence of sexism:
