Gross sometimes wears a T-shirt that proclaims: "Feminism is the radical proposition that women are human beings." She finds this necessary because "neither conventional scholarship nor lifestyles really take the humanity of women seriously." By feminism, she means "a critical and reconstructive stance vis-à-vis the institutions and values of one's own culture, religion, and academic environment." After laying out the data on the depth of patriarchy and sexism in traditional religions, Gross says the question for a religious feminist is what to do next. She tells what some feminists have done to reform their religion and what others have done to create or recapture the Goddess traditions.
In her look at prehistoric times she examines the scholarship about the long period before male dominance and the possible causes for the emergence of patriarchy. She tries to give a balanced view on varied hypotheses. When she moves to What Next? she critiques varied feminist visions of the future, giving a good bit of space to Mary Daly (reviewed above). Starhawk is the best-known woman who has experimented with the feminist spirituality movement. Gross quotes Starhawk as saying, "We do not believe in the Goddess - we connect with Her; through the moon, the stars, the ocean, the earth, through trees, animals, through other human beings, through ourselves." Charlene Spretnak, also quoted, emphasizes the importance of connection in religious practice: "If a person is born with a mind that does not readily perceive connectedness with other people and is raised in a culture that does not encourage such perceptions, he will probably go though life seeing only separations, struggling with the frustrations of this worldview and accepting its corollaries as truth."
This book is a very good place to start in rethinking your religion at this time. It objectively lays out the situation we are in and what others are doing. Then it leaves you with your decision.
