Tognino Hall, Duane Library

From the context of a violent and divided world, this lecture explores the connections of feminist theology to the contemporary social movements for global justice, and highlights the contributions of feminist religious actors to building global solidarity, constructive transformation, and hopeful alternatives.

The lecture is presented by Maria Pilar Aquino, Professor of Theology and Religious Studies, University of San Diego, founding member of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic/Latino Theologians, author and editor of thirteen books and journal essays that address issues related to the study of society from the Christian perspective, including feminist theologies of liberation, social justice, religion and violence against women, intercultural dialogue, and approaches to peacebuilding.
