- Dumpert highlights a "key question" asked in the book by Anne Carolyn Klein:
- "...whether Western Buddhists feminist-minded, politically-minded, academic [in addition to influencing the Eastern women] will allow ideas to spread equally effectively in the other direction, allowing Western subjectivities constructed through psychology, consciousness-raising, and fierce individualityto be as affected and infected by the Dharma as the Dharma is by Western ideas."
