Summary
From the beginning of time, women have had the same thirst for knowledge as men, but were denied access to educaiton. This program looks at the religious attitudes that support these age-old convictions and examines what the world has lost by exculding women from the intelllectual loop. Scriptural scholar Elain Pagels tells about newly discovered documents suggesting that women were equal to men in early Christianity. Historian Ginette Paris looks at the powerful goddesses of the past who were shunted aside in favor of the submissive image of the Virgin Mary. A Bangladeshi writer faces a death decree for writing about Islam's oppression of women. At Wellesley College and the University of Norway, we visit programs devoted exclusively to women's studies
