Women’s Reading Group

When men are treated as the default sex, women pose challenging intellectual problems: Does difference imply inferiority? How much do our bodies shape our vocations? What does the entanglement of mother and child reveal about what it means to be human? This group explores a wide range of Christian women's reflections on women's experiences of God, the church, and political and intellectual life. Readings may include excerpts from Edith Stein ("The Separate Vocations of Man and Woman According to Nature and Grace"), Pauli Murray ("Sermon on the Ordination of Women"), Sarah Coakley (God, Sexuality, and the Self: An Essay on the Trinity), Erika Bachiochi (The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision), and more. Bring your own suggested readings to share with the group!
