Responding to the call to broaden the conversation between feminists and religious studies and those working in women's studies, this reader places the literature of women's spirituality within the context of broader feminist themes. The essays provide an accessible presentation that examines the impact of contemporary feminism on the practice and study of religion and reveals how feminism has affected religious institutions, theology and individual religious/spiritual practice. The essays address literature on women and religion in relation to women's studies as a discipline. They cover reform and revolution, religious history as herstory, conflicting retelling of the past, unspoken worlds, sexuality and traditions and the future. For those interested in an examination of women and religion in relation to women's studies.
