Summary
"Weaver addresses the historical context, theological response, and contemporary experience of nuns, laywomen, theologians, and women in the pew who struggle in an ecclesiastical community that energetically opposes feminism. She examines the new feminist consciousness of some Catholic women; women's roles in the parish; the relationship of women's religious orders to the women's movement; women's ordination; Roman Catholic feminist theologians; and feminist spirituality. Weaver has added a new introduction addressing the current realities of a conservative Papacy and Church."--Jacket
