Reviews
"This volume takes an important step toward critically engaging and pushing back against feminist theories, thinking of Buddhist women as complex political, economic, sexual, intellectual players in global Buddhism." -- H-Net Reviews (H-Buddhism)

"Building on a long career of advocacy for women and gender equality in Buddhism, Karma Lekshe Tsomo seeks to bring together scholars into conversation and present a critical, fresh reflection on the indigenous and localized forms of feminism and femininity in Buddhist communities around the world ... Works such as Buddhist Feminisms and Femininities show us how, through sympathetic understanding and learned appreciation across cultural contexts, we begin to connect self and others and make sense of human lives in their full complexity." -- Lion's Roar

"At the vanguard of new global feminist work in religion, the contributors to this collection bring their textual, historical, and ethnographic expertise to the task of exploring the particular ways that distinctively Asian feminisms are developing." -- CHOICE
