The growing body of feminist literature in the late 20th and early 21st centuries demonstrates the phenomenal advances of feminist thought and movements in the context of Church and society. Characteristic of this growth is the re-location of issues from the global North, and broadening of focus to include voices from the global South. In the context of globalisation new vistas and voices are emerging that trace new directions and seek to rephrase the central questions in the feminist discourse. This volume aims to highlight the changing face and colour of feminist theological discourse, recognise innovative research in the field, and facilitate a global conversation among feminists engaged in theological ethics in the world church. Contributors include: Anne Arabome (Nigeria), Teresa Okure (Nigeria), Philomena Mwaura (Kenya), Lilian Dube (Zimbabwe), Veronica Rop (Kenya), Alison Monro (South Africa), Sharon Bong (Malaysia), Aloysius Lopez Cartagenas (Philippines), Agnes Brazal (Philippines), Shaji George (India), Emilce Cuda (Argentina), Kochurani Abraham (India), Anna Perkins (Jamaica), Gerard Mannion (Ireland), Teresa Forcades i Vila (Spain), Stepfanie Knauss (Germany), Anne Patrick (USA), Nichole Flores (USA), Shawnee Daniels-Sykes (USA), Elizabeth Marie Bucar (USA), and Jim Keenan (USA).
