This collection of essays by internationally renowned women scholars both contests the notion of fundamentalism and attempts to find places where it might converge with women's roles in the world's various religions. Covering Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity, these scholars explore fundamentalism as a system or method of limiting women's religious roles and examine the ways that women embrace certain aspects of fundamentalism.
