The Catholic Culture Podcast: Episode 29 – Catholic Feminism: Should We?

0


Feb 19, 2019

Today there is more pressure than ever before on both women and
men to embrace feminism. In her outstanding memoir, Into the
Deep
, Abigail Rine Favale gives a resonant account of her
journey from an evangelical childhood to a Christian feminism which
inevitably gave way to the secular, postmodern variety. This
ideology gradually gutted her faith—a process interrupted by
childbirth and a sudden and unexpected conversion to
Catholicism.

We discuss the feasibility of Catholic feminism, the danger of
interpreting Scripture and doctrine through a predetermined
ideological hermeneutic, facile uses of the word “equality”, the
totalizing nature of all ideology, the role of intuition in the
spiritual life, and more.
