Summary
"Writing Catholic Women examines the interplay of gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, and sexuality through the lens of Catholicism. Using a wide range of works by women writers, Jeana DelRosso forges interdisciplinary connections among women's studies, religion, and late twentieth-century literature. She suggests that the girlhood narratives of such writers constitute highly charged sites of their differing gestures toward Catholicism. DelRosso demonstrates that an understanding of the ways in which women write about religion from different cultural and racial contexts offers a crucial contribution to current discussions in gender, ethnic, and cultural studies."--Jacket
