In the Blog World:
Devotees Seen As Sexist
Posted October 18, 2007
Whenever I am witness to such a spectacle, I always check to see if the Hare Krishna women are in the back of the group. Someone once told me that women are lower down the Hare Krishna reincarnation ladder and aren't allowed to be up front with the alpha males.
I'm not sure if this is true, but I guess I'm always trying to confirm it every time a Krishna carnival passes by -- even when it's just a photograph such as this one. And if you look closely, there certainly aren't any women leading off this particular parade.
