Raising important questions

This book is a collection of essays raising important questions about women's roles in Buddhism. Many of the writers struggle with the apparent lack of permission for emotional expressions in Buddhist traditions. Is Buddhism just another means to suppress our emotions? How can women become and grow as Buddhists if most (all?) traditions relegate women to second-grade human beings? The questions raised in this book can help make Buddhism in the West more egalitarian - but Buddhists need to start listening to women's concerns as human concerns not issues that will go away if we just meditate enough.
