This volume not only introduces new liturgies, it focuses on the communities that create and celebrate these liturgies. It gives voice to the women activists who show how their communities came into being; how social, cultural and political realites shaped them and their liturgies; and how they envision their lives in and as communities of faith. In drawing on this disparate material, the book reveals the expanse of the worldwide expression of women's rights, and how each is shaped by distinctly different contexts of struggle and hope.
Dissident Daughters maps the global struggle for women's rites by drawing together narratives of women from all over the world who create and celebrate women-identified liturgies.
