Item description for Women in Christ: Toward a New Feminism by Michele M. Schumacher...

Overview
The challenge of promoting the "new feminism" has barely been addressed since it was first launched by Pope John Paul II in his 1995 encyclical "Evangelium vitae." The thirteen contributors in this book, all outstanding international scholars, take up this task, together laying the necessary theoretical foundation for the new feminism. These chapters articulate an integral philosophical and theological understanding of persons that moves beyond patriarchy on the one hand and traditional feminism on the other. Central to the new perspective offered here is the biblical revelation of the human person man and woman in Christ, a vision that directs women beyond the "male" standard against which they have too often been measured. Far from constraining women to an "eternal essence," the dynamic view presented here encourages each woman to realize herself in perfect Christian freedom.

Reviews - What do customers think about Women in Christ: Toward a New Feminism?

Five stars for scholars, but three for general use  Apr 18, 2006
This book is a philosophical look at various new ways that feminism has been defined. It is translated from French and is a compliation of articles by well known authors such as Jean Bethke Elshtain and Anne-Marie Pelletier.

Because it is a translation, it is difficult reading; particularily for those people unfamiliar with the theological and philosophical arguments concerning women. For scholars however, it is a map of the various perspectives from which feminism is being currently defined. While the section explaning Pope John Paul II's view of feminism could be more critical, this book goes a long way toward describing the currents in third wave femininism.
