They say religion is a personal and private affair. But when a woman believes in a tradition, she has a relationship to that faith beyond her sacred space. Religious traditions’ historically poor treatment of women has lead many to question why they believe. How has their tradition either embraced and enlightened, or excluded and confined women throughout history? Her Voice, Her Faith presents the personal and historical perspectives of women who not only live their faith day to day, but who also know their religion’s history with women in general.

Katherine K. Young and Arvind Sharma are professors of religion at McGill University and co-editors of The Annual Review of Women in World Religions. They live in Montreal, Quebec.

This set of frank and searching essays…is impressive for the depth of its historical material and the breadth of its humanistic vision. This fine collection of learned yet accessible writings should be in virtually every library.

Her Voice, Her Faith is a simple, bold stroke: a women’s Varieties of Religious Experience. This much-needed anthology of first-person accounts from women on the other side of the choir, or rear of the mosque, or center of the coven, pushes the refresh button on the reporting of changes in all the world’s religions.
