Overview

Carroll Saussy believes that women, especially, have difficulty with self-esteem because their lives are shaped and controlled by patriarchal rules and roles that make them second-class citizens.

Saussy takes a theological and ideological approach in reviewing the system that fosters such poor self-esteem.
