Women and Jewish Law gives contemporary readers access to the central texts of the Jewish religious tradition on issues of special concern to women. Combining historical overview with a thoughtful feminist critique, this pathbreaking study points the way for "informed change" in the status of women in Jewish life."With great precision and clarity, Biale ferrets out for us the inner meaning of the law, traces its development, and explores its relevance to Jewish women's lives today."--Blu Greenberg, author of On Women and JudaismContentsWomen and the MitzvotMarriageDivorceThe Agunah and the YevamahSexuality and Marital RelationsNiddah: Laws of the MenstruantSexuality Outside of Marriage: Incest, Adultery, Promiscuity, and LesbianismProcreation and ContraceptionAbortionRapeEpilogueHalkhic SourcesGlossary
