Despite the tension between some proponents of feminism and organized religion, particularly in regard to family life, little has been written to view religion, feminism, and the family simultaneously. Drawing on history, theology, and the social sciences, the contributors to this volume analyze the impact of feminism on the experience of family life in its religious dimension. Religion, Feminism, and the Family is designed to stimulate discussion on both the contemporary women's movement and the future of the American family.

The Family, Culture, and Religion series offers informed and responsible analyses of the state of the American family from a religious perspective and provides practical assistance for the family's revitalization.

Anne Carr was a pioneering feminist theologian and advocate, and the first woman with a permanent faculty appointment to the University of Chicago's renowned Divinity School in Chicago, Illinois. She was a Roman Catholic nun and member of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) for almost a half-century and was a scholar of modern theology who specialized in Catholic thought and feminist theology for more than thirty years. She was the author of books such as The Theological Method of Karl Rahner; A Search for Wisdom and Spirit: Thomas Merton's Theology of Self; and Transforming Grace: Christian Tradition and Women's Experience.
