Overview

This volume delves intensively into religion and the influence of gender. Gilman suggests that through the development of secular ethics, religion can be directed not to the anticipation of a mythical afterlife, but instead to the transformation of the present. She demonstrates the ways in which a male driven ideology has produced a religion focused on death, discouraging any attention to the improvement of life on earth. Here, Gilman offers new thoughts that advocate a collective change of view.
