Until very recently, women have been invisible workers in the world's religions. Feminist critiques of religion, however, have begun to question centuries of perceived religious marginalization of women. Sharma (Women in World Religions) and Young (coauthor of Hindu Ethics) compile essays by leading feminist scholars that examine ways that such critiques are changing the roles of women in seven world religions. Each scholar explores the impact of feminism on her own religious tradition.
