The Woman's Bible | [Elizabeth Cady Stanton]

The Woman's Bible

The publication of The Woman's Bible in 1895 and 1898 represented the feminist pioneer's last strike at the roots of the ideology behind her gender's subordinate role in society. In keeping with her characteristic radical individualism, Stanton attacks religious orthodoxy on a political rather than scholarly basis.

Audible Editor Reviews

Published in a storm of controversy that caused a schism between author Elizabeth Cady Stanton and her feminist contemporaries, The Woman's Bible represented her last strike at the roots of the ideology behind women's roles in society. Narrator Jean Barrett's mature voice brings a natural strength to her performance of this challenge to the traditional position of religious orthodoxy that women should be subordinate to man. Barrett uses emphasis to highlight Stanton's examination of the Bible as the social activist places events in their historical context, interprets passages as both allegory and fact, and compares them with the myths of other cultures. To this day, Stanton's work continues to raise questions about society and gender.

Publisher's Summary

The publication of The Woman's Bible in 1895 and 1898 represented the feminist pioneer's last strike at the roots of the ideology behind her gender's subordinate role in society. In keeping with her characteristic radical individualism, Stanton attacks religious orthodoxy on a political rather than scholarly basis. This clarion call to action consists of a book-by-book examination of the Bible, placing events in their historical context, interpreting passages as both allegory and fact, and comparing them with the myths of other cultures. It endures as an extraordinary document because of the questions it addresses, the topics it covers, and its still-resonant sincerity.
