Summary
Publisher's description: This compelling collection of spiritual journeys is essential for anyone interested in the religious lives of women in the United States. In the past, books on feminism in the 1960s and 1970s have excluded women in religion entirely. This void is filled with the new collection, Transforming the Faith of Our Fathers. In this book, we hear the stories of sixteen prominent women leaders in religious communities who actively fought to change the way we think about women in religious realms. Letty Cottin Pogrebin, co-founder of Ms. Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, feminist Biblical scholar Carol Christ, leader of the Goddess movement Riffat Hassan, Muslim feminist theologian and many more share their heroic stories and shed light on issues of faith, feminism, struggles and triumphs. Contributors include: Lois M. Wilson, first woman moderator of the United Church of Canada; Letty Cottin Pogrebin, cofounder of Ms. Magazine; Azizah al-Hibri, President of Karamah: Muslim Women Lawyers for Human Rights; Virginia Ramey Mollenkot, founding member of Evangelical Women's Caucus; Rosemary Radford Ruether, Catholic feminist theologian; Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, Latina feminist theologian; Riffat Hassan, Muslim feminist theologian; Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza, feminist Biblical scholar; Carol P. Christ, leader of the Goddess movement; Margaret Toscano, founder of the Mormon Women's Forum; Charlotte Bunch, President of the Center for Women's Global Leadership; Blu Greenberg, President of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance; Delores Williams, womanist theologian; Judith Plaskow, Jewish feminist theologian
