The equality of women and men is one of the basic tenets of the Baha'i Faith, and much is said on the subject in the Baha'i writings. Until now, however, no single volume created for a general audience has provided comprehensive coverage of the Baha'i teachings on this topic and its many aspects. In this broad survey husband and wife team Janet and Peter Khan address even those aspects of equality of the sexes that are usually ignored or glossed over in the existing literature.
