CALL FOR AUTHORS: Scholars are needed for articles on women in Buddhism, Confucianism, Daoism, and Shinto, to cover a range of topics, including:
women’s religious art, women’s worship, women’s rituals, women’s leadership and organization in religion, women’s social and environmental issues in religion, the feminine divine, religious expectations and ideals for women, women’s and feminist movements in religion, women and holy days and seasonal celebrations, women in sacred texts
Articles are factual and historical, providing an overview of each topic with examples and selected details. The focus in each area is on the ways in which women live and have lived their faith – their activities, movements, leadership, and contributions; expectations, perceptions, and images of women according to scripture, tradition, and organizational structures; and ways that religions view and have viewed women and the feminine.
