Emily Colgan, Biblical scholar, reveals the dangers of dualistic thinking about women and earth in sacred text. Feminine and land-based metaphors in sacred texts can influence real world assumptions, attitudes and behaviours towards women and the earth – without the readers’ knowledge. At the heart of the problem, said Dr Colgan, is a mindset formed in ancient times and perpetuated in ‘the West,’ that categorises everything into an ordered list of value-laden opposites, known as a ‘dualist hierarchy’. In that system of thinking, she said, women and land are linked together on the ‘inferior side’ of the chart.
