Does God Hate Women?

Author(s): Ophelia Benson

Biography & Memoir

The new book from high profile philosophy writers Ophelia Benson and Jeremy Stangroom (authors of the hugely successful "Why Truth Matters"), exploring a topical and controversial religious and cultural issue in a highly accessible manner.This fascinating book explores the role that religion and culture play in the oppression of women. Philosophy writers Ophelia Benson and Jeremy Stangroom ask probing questions about the way that religion shields the oppression of women from criticism and why many Western liberals, leftists and feminists have remained largely silent on the subject.The lives of women in the industrialized world have improved enormously in the last hundred years, especially so, in social, cultural and political terms, in the last forty. But throughout the rest of the world, a great many women lead lives of misery and sometimes plain horror. They are often considered and treated as the property of men and have few, if any, rights. Such treatment is generally sustained and protected by a combination of religion and culture."Does God Hate Women?" explores instances of the oppression of women in the name of religious and cultural norms and how these issues play out both in the community and in the political arena.
