From the women of scripture, to Catholic Women Speak, women have consistently changed church practice, communities and ideas. This series focuses on eight examples who have enriched and transformed faith communities, and represent important legacies for understanding women today. They also represent diverse kinds of contribution – from the theological creativity of Hildegard and Julian, to the nourishment of the spirituality of the ordinary in the writings of Thérèse of Lisieux and Evelyn Underhill, through the transformative action of the Daughters of Charity and Dorothy Day, to the clarion voices of contemporary theologians in Valerie Saiving, Teresa Okure, and the CWS project. These varied voices, discussed from different disciplinary perspectives each have the potential to help us reimagine our own contributions to the Church and the world.
