Women in Buddhism: a talk by Venerable Bhikkhuni Dhammananda

Previously, she taught Buddhism and Eastern Philosophy at Thammasat University in Bangkok for 27 years. She founded Yasodhara, the International Buddhist Women’s Newsletter, in 1984 and served as its editor until 2012.

We are privileged to have Bhikkhuni Dhammanda join us via zoom from her monastery in Nakhon Pathom. She will talk about Women before Buddhism, the Upliftment of Women under Buddhism, Establishment of the Fourfold of Buddhist Communities and their collective responsibilities. The talk will be followed by a Q & A session.
