Fabulous list from Maggi Dawn – many thanks.

Elizabeth Johnson self-identifies as feminist and I think should be added to the feminist section, as her work is in some ways axiomatic.

I love Maggi’s blog! It my be that I have missed her somewhere, but I can’t see Elizabeth Cady Stanton. I don’t think she would have naturally thought of herself as a theologian, but the Woman’s Bible of 1902 is a most important work!

Dorothee Soelle – one of the great C20 theologians period.

Is it at all possible that one reason for the dearth of theological publications by women authors are not regarded as eminently saleable by the mainly male-dominated publishing houses?

After all, in their day – when the written word was not as accessible as it is today – women theologians were among the most credible articulators of spiritual experience. Hilda, Dame Julian, come readily to mind.

Is there such a thing as sexism in the arena of Christian publication?

Why, Father Ron, would Christian publication (of all places) be spared the sexism of EVERYWHERE else? O_o
