Feminism

Hi, I wonder if you could help me, My name is Claire and I live in York, Great Britain. I am studying Philosophy as one of my A levels and as part of the course I do coursework. I have chosen to look at Feminist Theology and sexual equality. I realize you have better things to do, but could you possibly suggest to me a reading list or some ideas that may be useful to me. Thanks. Yours faithfully, Claire

For feminist theology--I can recommend a few books, but I believe the best source is to go to Auburn Theological Seminary based in New York City (I'm sure they have a website). They offer many courses in this topic and I believe that their curricula will be useful to you. Among my recommendations:

  • Anything by Karen Armstrong--though she is more a historian and a biographer--her genre is Theology from a feminist perspective.

  • There is a great anthology called Women Imagine Change, which includes many essays/entries on feminist theology.

  • Elaine Pagel's The Gnostic Gospels.

  • Riane Eisler's The Chalice and the Blade.

  • And, anything by Mary Daly--a radical feminist theologian who has written many books.

Check our Bookstore for these books and other ideas.

That should be a start--good luck.

P.S. Thanks for being thoughtful about my time. Though I certainly have other equally good things to do with my time, I actually love (almost) every second I spend at Ask Amy.
