Friends Event: Women in Hinduism

Thursday, 1 November 2012 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Langley Grammar School
Reddington Drive

A talk by Anuradha Dooney of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies.
The roles of women in Hindu traditions are changing as they are throughout the rest of the world. What can stories of Sita and Draupadi, of Savitri or Sulabha contribute to the contemporary challenges of chapati rolling ( or not!) child-care and career-making. This talk sketches a broad overview of varying female voices from selected Hindu sacred texts and explores their relevance to Hindu women today.
