Why do all the world's major religions have patriarchy and the enslavement of women at their core? We examine why everyone who cares about equality and liberation for women should fight against the shackles of religion.
Sunsara Taylor will explore these questions with regards to the conditions of women worldwide, but with an emphasis on dispelling any illusion that religion -- and Christianity in particular -- is any more "enlightened" as it is practiced here in the U.S. She will draw from AWAY WITH ALL GODS! Unchaining the Mind and Radically Changing the World by Bob Avakian.
Sunsara Taylor writes for Revolution Newspaper, sits on the Advisory Board of The World Can't Wait, and is a co-host on "Equal Time for Freethought" on WBAI radio in NYC.
