Today is the last day to download the Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink for FREE. Click here for complete information. This report “is a groundbreaking investigation into the millions of women who are doing it all and barely scraping by, struggling to provide and parent in a nation that hasn’t kept pace with the modern realities of their lives.” Read essays and research from some of the world’s top thinkers on this subject.
One of the contributors is a favorite of ours, Sister Joan Chittester. Here’s just a taste of her contribution:
“It took centuries before we began to speak of humanity as a whole—to see humanness as more than ethnic identity, more than color. But even as far as we’ve come, women are still one class of people who are set apart, separated, and given less value and worth by multiple religious traditions.”
Read the entire excerpt from Sister Joan’s piece, “Are Women Devalued by Religions?” here.
a special shout out to Unfundamentalist Christians for bringing this link to our attention
