Feminists in Faith fall schedule begins Sept. 19

Feminists in Faith, an inter-religious dialogue group, will open its fall events with "Feminism and Christianity," a round-table discussion led by Dr. Corrine Carvalho, on Friday, Sept. 19.

In Feminists in Faith, initiated in 1984, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Protestant women meet monthly over the lunch hour for interfaith discussions that encourage openness to diverse faiths to enrich individual thinking and the broader community.

Each program has a presenter or facilitator responsible for that program. They have included academic professors of religion, professional ordained, lay and religious ministers and rabbis and professional women in the community.

The fall schedule will feature two additional programs dealing with the intersection of feminism(s) and the three monotheistic traditions:

  • Friday, Oct. 17 – "Feminism and Judaism," led by Rabbi Amy Eilberg
  • Friday, Nov. 14 – "Feminism and Islam," led by Dr. Fatmah Reda

Programs will be held from noon to 1 p.m. in the Luann Dummer Center for Women, Room 103, O'Shaughnessy Educational Center. Bring a bag lunch; cookies and drinks will be provided. Parking vouchers will be provided for participants who park in the ramp on Cretin Ave.
