  1. Kate,
    I remember last year on Facebook you asked for people to recommend a book on Feminist Theology (Christian). If you are looking for one for this year’s class, I would suggest “Sexism and God Talk” by Rosemary Radford Reuther (Ruether?). I hope things go well for the class. It looks great. Also, there is a wonderful woman named Jeanette Stokes who has lived in Durham for decades, who might be a good resource for you. She runs a non profit called “Resource Center for Women and Ministry in the South”. If you ever needed a guest lecturer, she would be very good.
