Most widely held works by Katherine K Young
Feminism and world religions( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Addressing religion and feminism on a global scale, this unprecedented book contains a nuanced and fine-tuned treatment of seven of the world's religions from a feminist perspective by leading women scholars. The fact that these authors share a dual but undivided commitment both to themselves as women and to their traditions as adherents imparts to their voices a prophetic quality, and if Mahatma Gandhi is to be believed, even scriptural value."--Jacket

Fundamentalism and women in world religions by Arvind Sharma( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays by internationally renowned women scholars both contests the notion of fundamentalism and attempts to find places where it might converge with women's roles in the various world's religions. The essayists explore fundamentalism as a system or method of limiting women's religious roles and examine the ways that women embrace certain aspects of fundamentalism. The essays cover Hinduism, Buddhism, Confuciansim, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. The contributors investigate the ways that women "fight back" against fundamentalist conceptions of family, gender roles, doctrinal practices, ritual practices, and God or theistic constructs. The writers reassert and preserve their identities by challenging the static categories of fundamentalism. The essays contain deep and powerful explorations of the intersections of culture, religion, and feminism."--Publisher's description
Replacing misandry : a revolutionary history of men by Paul Nathanson( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first three volumes of this series, Paul Nathanson and Katherine Young challenge theories about patriarchy that ideological forms of feminism have promoted. In this volume, they argue that we must replace those misandric theories with one that takes seriously the needs and problems of boys and men no less than those of girls and women; at the same time, they add, we must maintain the reforms that egalitarian forms of feminism have promoted. With both factors in mind, they trace the history of men - that is, culturally organized perceptions of the male body and its masculine functions - over the past ten thousand years. They show how these perceptions have evolved in connection with a series of technological and cultural revolutions: horticultural, agricultural, industrial, military, and now reproductive. This new approach sets the stage for understanding a profound and growing problem that our society must face: the increasing inability of boys and men to create or sustain a healthy collective identity. The authors define this as an identity that is distinctive, necessary, and therefore publicly valued. Without a healthy and positive identity, two current trends will continue: giving up (dropping out of school, society, or even life itself) and attacking a society that has no room for men specifically as men, believing that even a negative identity, acted out in antisocial ways, is better than none at all. -- from back cover
Sanctifying misandry : goddess ideology and the Fall of Man by Katherine K Young( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Sanctifying Misandry, Katherine Young and Paul Nathanson challenge an influential version of modern goddess religion, one that undermines sexual equality and promotes hatred in the form of misandry - the sexist counterpart of misogyny." "To set the stage, the authors discuss two massively popular books - Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code and Riane Eisler's The Chalice and the Blade - both of which rely on a feminist conspiracy theory of history. They then show how some goddess feminists and their academic supporters have turned what Christians know as the Fall of Man into the fall of men. On this interpretation, presented in three "documentary" films, our ancestors once lived in an egalitarian paradise under the aegis of a benevolent great goddess. But men either rebelled or invaded, replacing the goddess with gods and establishing patriarchies that have oppressed women ever since. In the end, however, women will restore the goddess and therefore paradise as well. The authors critique this belief and compellingly show how it has encouraged the widespread misandry in popular culture. They conclude with several case studies of modern goddess religion and its effects on mainstream religion." "Young and Nathanson show that understanding contemporary culture will allow us to move beyond not only gynocentrism and androcentrism but also misandry and misogyny."--Jacket
