Does God Hate Women? - Ophelia Benson and Jeremy Stangroom


Ophelia Benson and Jeremy Stangroom have written a new book, Does God Hate Women?, a critique of religious misogyny that is being published in the UK this week (and will be available in the US soon). For a sample of the argument, go here for an article by Ophelia in The Observer.

Edit: I why can't I resist pointing out where you'll be able to find a bit more from Ophelia Benson on a related but different subject?

God created women.
he created them so man would not be alone. the bible makes clear man was not created for woman.
so the man is the head of the home as is today. this moved over into society everywhere ever since.
In fact as a biblical creationist i suspect that the 'rib" taken out of adam was really a ability to self reproduce.
Otherwise adam would of suspected there was a opposite like in the animal kingdom.
All people would of been men otherwise.
now however some are women.
speculation but a good one i think.

Ooh, thank you Robert Byers. Unless that's just satire of course.
