One of our goals at ASWM is to draw attention to films, books, and other resources that will serve scholars and inform the general public. We invite scholars in a variety of fields to write our reviews.
Here is a sample:
- Women and Goddesses in Myth and Sacred Text: An Anthology, Tamara Agha-Jaffar, editor. Reviewed by Johanna H. Stuckey, Ph.D.
- Pink Smoke Over the Vatican, by Jules Hart, about Roman Catholic women’s fight to become ordained priests. Reviewed by Patricia Monaghan.
- Creating Buddhas, by Isadora Gabrielle Leidenfrost, about an American woman who has mastered the ancient (and traditionally male) art of Tibetan thangka needlework. Reviewed by Lydia Ruyle.
- A Woman to Match A Mountain: Neal Forsling and Crimson Dawn by Karen Snyder, about a woman artist who created a “fairy tale” myth in 20th century Wyoming. Reviewed by Sid Reger.
