Description

Despeux and Kohn give an important survey of Daoism as it’s been practiced and developed by women.

They show us a tradition where at least some women played every sort of leadership role–as teachers, priests, abbots, founders of lineages, enlightened masters, holy mothers, or shamanic mediums.

It’s a case of religion developed by women, for women, which helps open similar possibilities for female-friendly versions of other religions.
