Overview

Charlotte Perkins Gilman's His Religion and Hers is a brave critique of organized religion and the consequences that a male-constructed religion has on everyday life. She 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. Courageously questioning why 'neither religion, morality, nor ethics has made us good,' she demonstrates the ways in which a male driven ideology has produced a religion focused on death and discourages any attention to the improvement of life on earth. Offering new thoughts that advocate a collective change of view, this volume delves intensively into religion and the influence of gender. Coming generations will welcome this new edition of His Religion and Hers, now with an introduction by noted scholar Michael S. Kimmel.
