Despite the tension between some proponents of feminism and organized religion, particularly in regard to family life, little has been written to view religion, feminism, and the family simultaneously. Drawing on history, theology, and the social sciences, the contributors to this volume analyze the impact of feminism on the experience of family life in its religious dimension. Religion, Feminism, and the Family is designed to stimulate discussion on both the contemporary women's movement and the future of the American family.Table of ContentsSeries Foreword Contributors Introduction 1 Religion and Feminism: A Reformist Christian Analysis 2 Re-Inventing the Ties that Bind: Feminism and the Family at the Close of the Twentieth Century 3 The Family in the Hebrew Bible 4 The Family in Rabbinic Judaism 5 Christian Understandings of Human Nature and Gender 6 A Common Love: Christian Feminist Ethics and the Family 7 Christianity, Women, and the Medieval Family 8 The Early Modern Period: Religion, the Family, and Women's Public Roles 9 Restoring the Divine Order to the World: Religion and the Family in the Antebellum Woman's Rights Movement 10 Religion, Feminism, and the American Family: 1865-1920 11 "Take Your Girlie to the Movies": Dating and Entertainment in Twentieth-Century America 12 Reluctant Feminists: Rural Women and the Myth of the Farm Family 13 Rethinking Private and Public Patriarchy 14 Family and Work: Can Anyone "Have It All"? 15 Sacrificial and Parental Spiritualities 16 The "Recovery" of Fatherhood? 17 "Lifting as We Climb": Womanist Theorizing about Religion and the Family 18 A Voice from "The Borderlands": Asian-American Women and their Families 19 Shakti and Sati: Women, Religion, and Development Final Reflections Index of Names and Subjects
