Christianity and Feminism by Sonya Wratten
What does it mean to be a woman in 21st century Britain? Writing for people who seek to make sense of the Christian faith through contemporary thinking, Sonya Wratten explores some of the issues of feminism today and what a credible progressive Christian feminist theology might look like in light of such reflection. Her book looks briefly at the relationship Christianity has had with the development of feminism, what shape feminist theology has taken in the present time and what the progressive directions of the future might be in terms of furthering radical theology in this area. As well as using the theological sources of scripture and tradition, she draws on our personal experiences and the cultural context in which we live.
Sonya J Wratten was a trustee of PCN Britain for three years and is currently Priest in Charge of All Saints, Bedford. Before ordination she trained as a Community Artist in the realm of community drama and has worked as a Community Development Worker with churches and other faith groups. Sonya’s interests lie in interfaith dialogue and community engagement, faith and the arts and of course, feminism! Sonya has been a feminist as long as she can remember, believing that the goal of gender equality is one of our most important, unfinished tasks in an increasingly culturally and religiously diverse context.
