Question 3 Gross states that the difference between feminist “reformists” and feminist “revolutionaries” is about the degree to which they remain connected and loyal to traditional religions (pp. 107-109). Imagining yourself as someone facing this choice, in which camp do you think you would fall and why? Explain.
Question 4 Name the three claims of feminist theology central to its valuing of women’s experience as the primary religious authority (pp. 109-111).
Question 5 Choose one of the following two sections to focus on 1) Feminist Transformations of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (pp.111-132) OR 2) Feminist Theological Transformations in Hinduism and Buddhism (pp. 133-140)
Then reply to the following prompt in reference to a specific tradition and support your answer by drawing in evidence from the reading (from within the section you selected).
