Journal of Buddhist Ethics Becoming Bhikkhunī? Mae Chis and the Global Women's Ordination Movement Becoming Bhikkhunī? Mae Chis and the Global Women's Ordination Movement
Women's full ordination as Buddhist nuns (Pāli: bhikkhunī, Sanskrit: bhikṣuṇī) has been a contested issue across Buddhist traditions and historical periods. Today, there is a global movement to secure women's full participation in Buddhist monastic institutions. The present study examines this "bhikkhunī movement" in Thailand from the perspective of mae chis, Thai Buddhist female renunciates who abide by eight precepts yet do not have full ordination or ordination lineage.
