It examines a range of themes from the viewpoint of identificable traditions such as Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism, from a theoretical and practical perspective. Among the themes discussed are the cross-over between religious and secular values and assumptions in the search for a just jurisprudence for women, the application of theological insights from religious traditions to legal issues at the core of feminist work, feminist legal readings of scriptural texts on women's rights, and the place that religious law has assigned to women in ecclesiastic life."--Back cover."@en ;
