Finding the Feminine Path
Women now make up the largest group of religious “dropouts” in Western society, and Joan Borysenko is asking why. Just as medical developments made by and for men were expected to apply to women, so religions created by and for men are somehow expected to work equally well for women. But the religious and ritual forms that have been shaped so much by men can be alienating to women who spend much of their lives searching for their faith. Through a fresh look at old traditions, case studies, new rituals, her own story, and the stories of others Borysenko has encountered in their struggle to find God, A Woman’s Journey to God seeks to help women heal the anger they’ve felt toward their own spiritual traditions and find a way back that incorporates their needs.
