TOVA HARTMAN is a lecturer at Bar Ilan University and author of Appropriately Subversive: Modern Mothers in Traditional Religions (2002).
"This smart, subtle, and intensely personal book provides a fresh inquiry into an enduring dilemma: How can women committed at once to established religious tradition and to the ethical claims of modern feminism, resolve the tensions between them? Hartman elegantly charts her own complex process of intellectual and spiritual engagement and her dogged refusal to deny or evade the hard questions that religion and feminism continue to pose one another. It's a gem of a book, and one I can't wait to teach." - Marie Griffith, Professor of Religion, Princeton University"
