Overview

This unique anthology brings together forty-four contributors from around the world, including well-known Catholic women theologians and up-and- coming theological voices from the global South, with a number of reflections from women telling their personal stories of faith and struggle.
Contributors include Anne Arabome, Tina Beattie, Agnes Brazal, Margaret Farley, Astrid Lobo Gajiwala, Cristina Lledo Gomez, Nontando Hadebe, Elizabeth Johnson, Ursula King, Sara Maitland, Cettina Militello, Jean Porter, Carolina del Río, Lucetta Scaraffia, Janet Martin Soskice, Ana Lourdes Suárez, and many more.
At a time when the Church is seeking to address issues related to family in the Church and in the contemporary world, the contributors believe that women have a vital contribution to make to these discussions. In Catholic Women Speak they offer theological insights and personal reflections as a resource for others considering these important topics. While dealing with complex and contested issues concerning relationships, marriage and divorce, family life, motherhood, sexuality and reproduction, poverty, and marginalization, all the essays in the book are relatively short and written for the widest possible readership.
Catholic Women Speak will be of interest to anyone seeking to understand more about the faith of Catholic women in the modern world and the many perspectives, questions, and insights that women bring to the Church from diverse cultures and contexts.
