Overview

The publication of The Woman's Bible in 1895 and 1898 represented the feminist pioneer's last strike at the roots of the ideology behind her gender's subordinate role in society. In keeping with her characteristic radical individualism, Stanton attacks religious orthodoxy on a political rather than scholarly basis. This clarion call to action consists of a book-by-book examination of the Bible, placing events in their historical context, interpreting passages as both allegory and fact, and comparing them with the myths of other cultures. It endures as an extraordinary document because of the questions it addresses, the topics it covers, and its still-resonant sincerity. Unabridged republication of the classic two-volume edition of 1895 and 1898.

A different perspective on how women are presented,when they are even mentioned, in the Christian Bible.

I find it insulting that this is represented as a Bible study. All it seems to be is an angry woman who is a non believer. It even calls the Bible fables & says to take the Bible as we do all books and accept the good & ignore the bad. Really? That is no Bible study. It is a Bible blasting. Complete & utter rubbish!!! I got so disgusted I deleted it after a few pages.
