|"Woman is a symbol of shakti. Shakti is not force: shakti is the energy which integrates peoples, communities, nations. It is woman's integrating shakti that will build a new civilisation for the new age! Through the pages of this book, Rev. Dada traces the changing attitudes towards women in society and history, and explores the status of women within marriage, in the family, as single individuals and as participants in the workforce. While issues like violence against women are dealt with squarely, Rev. Dada's message is one of hope and promise: for he is certain that in the future women will have an important role to play. The woman soul shall lead us upward, on!
