This book gave many female perspectives on Buddhism. I found many insights to be valuable and stories I had not come in contact anywhere else. One thing that bothered me was the physical descriptions given of all the women. What they had to say, not their physical attributes were what was important to me.
I like the way she confronts the issues. Slightly dated.
