March is Women's History Month. At the suggestion and with the assistance of Dr. Nancy Whitt, the University Library hosts until the end of the month a display of books of feminist theology. While the collection is not exhaustive, it does include some pioneering works in this area by authors such as Carol P. Christ, Naomi Goldenberg, Mary Daly, Katie Cannon and Rosemary Reuther. Included also is a copy of Elizabeth Cady Stanton's The Woman's Bible, published 1895-1898. Take some time to explore these and other books that exhibit the variety and creativity of women's theological writing. This display is on the 2nd floor of the University Library at the top of the central staircase.
