Feminist and Womanist Studies
"Feminism is the radical notion that women are people," quipped Maria Shear in 1986. The history of feminist and womanist struggles on behalf of that "radical notion" show how challenging it has been to "business as usual"—not least in biblical and theological scholarship. Today's best thinkers seek not only to bring those perspectives to bear on the biblical and theological tradition but to ask penetrating questions about our world and how it can, and must, change.
Fortress authors have been at the forefront of feminist and womanist inquiry and protest and continue to speak at the intersections of gender and politics, theology, race, and Christian origins.
Diasporic Feminist Theology attempts to construct feminist theology by adopting diaspora as a theopolitical and ethical metaphor. The author here constructs diasporic, transethnic, and glocal feminist theological discourses that create spaces of transformation, reconciliation, and solidarity.
