Essays on Women and Tibet
In this volume six western women scholars and practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism come together to explore the issues of "women" and of "the feminine' in Tibet.
In a group of critical and provocative essays, they discuss female role models, the nun's life, and gender and role identity as they have manifested in the context of Tibet. These essays thus help to fill a gap in this important area of study; and the volume makes a valuable contribution to several disciplines, including Buddhist studies, comparative studies and womens' studies.
