What is Buddhist Feminism? This book examines reasons why Buddhism and feminism may seem to be incompatible, and shows that
Buddhist and feminist philosophies can work together to challenge patriarchal structures. Current scholarship usually compares
Buddhism and feminism to judge their compatibility, rather than describing a Buddhist Feminist perspective or method. Sokthan
Yeng instead looks for a pattern that connects Buddhist and feminist traditions. In particular, she explores possible exchanges
between feminist and Buddhist philosophies which highlight how they each contribute to a more nuanced understanding of anger.
Yeng explores how a Buddhist feminist approach would allow women's anger to be transformed from that which is outside the
bounds of philosophy into that which contributes to philosophical discourse in the East and West, and between the two.
