The Future of Feminism?

Jun 28–Jul 9 8:30AM–11:30AM
HIST 648 2–3 Credits (2 Audit)

Course Description

Feminism is often presented in history books as a force antithetical to Christianity, and Christianity in turn as an enemy of women’s liberation. Discover a different version of the story, encountering an extraordinary and diverse group of late-19th and 20th century Christian feminists for whom spiritual practices played an essential role in political resistance. In the process, learn how the underlying presuppositions framing our culture’s understanding of feminism, womanhood and femininity shape our missional environment. This class is not so much a history lesson as a ‘missional summit’ for all those asking difficult questions about gender, sexuality and mission.
