Ritual Making Women : Shaping Rites for Changing Lives Paperback
by Jan Berry
Part of the Gender, Theology and Spirituality series
'Ritual Making Women' looks at the way in which women's making of ritual has emerged from the rapidly developing field of women's spirituality and theology.
The author uses ethnographic material to explore how the construction of ritual uses story-making and embodied action to empower women.
Ritual, far from being a timeless and universal practice, is shown to be a contextual and gendered performance in which women subvert conventional distinctions of private and public.
The book combines narrative and case study material and draws on feminist theology and theory, social anthropology and gender studies.
