The Theology Department will host the next Soup with Substance on Wednesday, March 8, from noon to 1 p.m. in AMU Ballroom D.
International Women’s Day honors the achievements of women, and, while recognizing movement toward a more just society, also serves as a call to action. Recent events like the Women’s March on Washington in January continue to spark conversation about what it means to be a feminist. With this in mind, how can theology positively contribute to these conversations?
Dr. Gretchen Baumgardt, visiting assistant professor of theology, will discuss this question as well as how the fields of feminist theology and other women’s theologies have developed. The event will also look at the important contributions of women today from a global perspective.
