Most of the early literature concerning womens religious experience is about exceptional women- those who diverged from the traditional female role to become nuns, mystics or charismatic leaders. While women were permitted to be prophets and visionaries they rarely played an important part in church organisation. This paradox is explored in this book and a number of themes emerge: in particular, the dominance of male symbolism within the great religions.

The question of whether men and women apprehend religious systems and signs in the same way is also explored. In considering the contemporary scene, the book is able to look at the ways in which religion affects the lives of women in different societies and in different historical periods- this gives us a larger view of the ways in which our own perceptions of femaleness have been constructed out of the religious world views of both the past and the present. First Published in 1983.
