Item Description...
Profiles five historical women who combined faith and feminist perspectives to enact social change, including St. Teresa of Avila, Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Emily Dickinson, and Dorothy Day.

Publishers Description
Why do so many women of faith have such a strong aversion to feminism? And why do so many feminists have an ardent mistrust of religion? These questions are at the heart of Helen LaKelly Hunt's illuminating look at the alliance between spiritual conviction and social action. Intelligent and heartfelt, Faith and Feminism offers a perceptive look at the lives of five spirited and spiritual women of history, women who combined their undying faith with feminist beliefs and who made the world a better place by doing so.

• St. Teresa of Ávila, a woman whose bravery in confronting her shadows gave her the strength to connect with the world and live a life of divine action.

• Lucretia Mott, a Quaker minister, who rose from her quiet upbringing to become a passionate speaker and activist working tirelessly on behalf of justice and peace.

• Sojourner Truth, a Christian slave, who spoke out with unwavering courage to claim her God-given rightful place as an African American and a woman.

• Emily Dickinson, an extraordinary poet, who touched the world with her ability to capture and transform the experience of suffering.

• Dorothy Day, a radical journalist, who lived a life of voluntary poverty as a way of expressing her passion for the Christian faith and care for those in need.

A remarkable book that focuses on the idea that spirituality and feminism are really different expressions of the same impulse to make life more whole, Faith and Feminism offers a powerful catalyst for reflecting on our sense of self -- and for living and loving according to our deepest values.

Good Idea.....Not Well Executed  Jan 14, 2006
I was very excited about this book when I found it. As a woman of faith, I thought it would be interesting to see examples of women who had combined their feminist viewpoints with their faith. How they battled a world dominated by men with their religion as well. However, the book did not live up to the promise. The book is made to feature five women: St. Teresa of Avila, Lucretia Mott, Sojourner Truth, Emily Dickinson and Dorothy Day. While each story is compelling, it is all to brief. Each women have one chapter each, which gives basically a brief life story. It does not really go into depth how these women implemented their faith into their quest for women's right. It seemed more of an overview, designed for a class to discuss. Not for the solitary reader.

Also, I was not pleased with the use of the Imago Relationship Theory in the book. This is a book about feminism and faith, not about couple therapy. Just didn't seem to fit the book.

The little chapters on the women are interesting, however I was hoping for a more in depth discussion, than the overview presented in this book. Maybe in the future, the author will go back to this topic and revisit these women in better detail.
