Hi. My name is Jacqueline and I teach Buddhism to mothers online and in person at: I'm currently writing an article about the bhikkhuni ordination in Perth and am happy for any research data you can steer me towards. I'm aware of the basics but would like to learn more about the brave women who ordained, anything interesting about the actual ordination and any responses around the world. The interest of this article is to tell the story to the thousands of Buddhists in the West who are unaware of anything but the most basic aspects of the ordination. Thanks!

hi Jaqueline,
there are some threads on here about the ordination just have a look around, sujatos blog would probably have the most amount of links or references to othe sites regarding information, but it would depend if you want ifo on the actual ordination or the actions around it?

Welcome and hope you have a good time here and find what you are looking for.
