Next Topic: Women (Gender Equality) in Buddhism

This Sunday I would like to finish the topic of Happiness Here and Now. A number of people have expressed interest in the topic of Women in Buddhism, which I think is hugely important in the Western context, since gender equality has been somewhat elusive in Buddhist history. I therefore propose that we spend a couple of weeks on this, starting April 27. In fact, I wrote an essay that takes this issue back to Early Buddhism. Please read this in the next couple of weeks if you can as a beginning point for the discussions:

Also, please invite anyone you would like who has an interest in Women in Buddhism.
