Series: Routledge Critical Studies in Buddhism.
Series: Routledge Critical Studies in Buddhism. In one sense, it is a pity this book had to be written at all. The subtitle evinces the sense of frustration involved with being a woman, trying to win respect and recognition in the Buddhist world - which has, with a few notable exceptions, been characterised as a world in which the dominant voices are male.

Some eminent Chinese Buddhists have been supportive and generous toward upasikas and bhiksunis.
