As Jesuit education turns increasingly to lay partners, women educators and students find the Jesuit niche hospitable to concerns about social justice and justice for women. This very original collection celebrates the interplay of the Ignatian and feminist spirits, while naming and confronting frustrations and pitfalls. The book will be an unparalleled springboard for discussions about Jesuit identity, Catholic identity, Catholic higher education, and the Catholic future of feminism. Above all, it reaffirms the hopeful, engaged, transformational mission of Jesuit colleges and universities.-Lisa Sowle Cahill
Offers fresh perspectives and new interdisciplinary research on manythemes of importance to a range of scholars in the humanities, womenstudies, and educational studies.-Wendy Kohli
