Although you may not have read the book, AWAG’s, you can still jump into the conversation with great ease because the discussion of the material (patriarchy and male supremacy in religion) is pertinent to feminism, but also captivating.
Part III (of IV) Discussion (Religion, Patriarchy and Male Supremacy)
This book deals with:
*Religion, Patriarchy, Male Supremacy, and Sexual Repression
*The Bible Belt is the Lynching Belt: Slavery, White Supremacy, and Religion in America
*Christian Fascism and Genocide
*Religion, Fundamentalism, and the Slave Mentality
If you would like to purchase the book, you can do so on the day of this event (we will have books available) or ahead of time or later at Revolution Books, 406 W. Willis, Detroit MI 48201 (313) 204-2906 or Online at www.awaywithallgods.com
I will definitely be at this discussion. I know it will be quite interesting. If you don't know, I have a HUGE problem with the sexism and blatant inequality within many religions. It appalls me how so many women cling so closely to their religions and defend them when if they read their so called "holy" or "sacred" books, in fine print these books clearly demean, belittle, and discriminate against women.
