Content Version
Description Extrait de la couverture : "Filling the gap in the literature, this specially commissioned volume explores the struggles and accomplishments of women from both Tibet's past and its present. Here are queens from the imperial period, yoginis and religious teachers of medieval times, Buddhist nuns, oracles, political workers, medical doctors, and performing artists. Most of the chapters focus on the lives of individual women, whether from textual sources or from anthropological data, and show the Tibetan women have found ways to assume leadership roles and to explore educational opportunities in a variety of contexts. The book is innovatice in resisting both romanticization and hypercriticism of women's status in Tibetan society, attending rather to historical description and to the question of what is distinctive about their situations in Tibet and what is common to both men and women in Tibetan society."
