There are over two-hundred million Dalits– people designated as "untouchable" – across South Asia. Dalit women are subject to greater oppression than men: many are denied access to education, meaningful employment and healthcare and are subjected to temple prostitution and rape. A Cry for Dignity explores the lives of Dalit women and the violence they face and examines whether their spirituality – manifest in songs, stories and myth – is a source of strength or oppression. The lives of Dalit women on the subcontinent are set within the broader context of Dalits in the diaspora. A Cry for Dignity presents the plight of Dalit women from the unique perspective of their own movements for solidarity and justice.

Im Dezember 2012 wird eine 23-jährige Studentin in einem Bus in Delhi zum Opfer einer Gruppenvergewaltigung. Ihr Tod kurz darauf löst wochenlange Proteste in Indien aus. Katharina Kakars bewegendes Buch erschließt uns die Lebensrealität der Frauen auf dem Subkontinent, die millionenfaches Unrecht erleiden, aber häufig auch unvorstellbaren Mut aufbringen, um sich zu wehren. Dabei kennt die Gewalt viele Gestalten: Ehrenmorde und häusliche Gewalt, Mitgiftmorde und Vergewaltigungen, die Abtreibung weiblicher Föten und die Tötung kleiner Mädchen sind in Indien an der Tagesordnung. Sucht man nach den Gründen, begegnet man zwei gleichermaßen erdrückenden Realitäten: den kulturell tief verwurzelten patriarchalen Strukturen und dem ökonomischen Überlebenskampf der unteren Schichten. Katharina Kakar zeichnet ein vielfältiges Bild der Welt indischer Frauen, die Lichtseiten eingeschlossen: So ist der berufliche Weg von gut ausgebildeten Frauen in Indien oft leichter als vielerorts im Westen. Die Heldinnen dieses Buches aber sind die Frauen, die sich findig und furchtlos gegen das Unrecht stellen.

"Rosemary Radford Ruether's authoritative, award-winning critique of women's unequal standing in the church, which explored the complex history of redemption in evaluating conflict over the fundamental meaning of the Christian gospel for gender relations, is now in an updated and expanded edition. Ruether highlights women theologians' work to challenge the patriarchal paradigm of historical theology and to present redemption linked to the liberation of women. Ruether turns her attention to the situation of women globally and how the growing plurality of women's voices from multicultural and multireligious contexts articulates feminist liberation theology today." --Publisher description.

Rape Culture and Spiritual Violence examines sexual violence against women, how religion and society contribute to a rape culture, and the extreme suffering endured by rape victims as a result. Using the testimony of women who have experienced both rape and the consequences of rape culture—from a range of religious, cultural, ethnic, and social contexts—the book explores both the suffering and healing of rape victims from World War II to today. Among the issues considered are victim invisibility, the inability to express pain, and the tendency to assume shame and self-blame. The study examines the role of society in shaping and reinforcing these responses, contributing to traumas that can lead to spiritual death. The book also explores possibilities for multiple spiritual resurrections within the practice of daily life, encouraging both individual healing and social change.
