Quotable Quote

“Feminists in the churches have insisted on their birth and baptismal right to equal citizenship in society and church. Yet, like the Galilean wo/men disciples, we are often passed over with silence … Like Miriam, the sister of Moses and Aaron, we are often punished and shunned in our struggles for equal citizenship when we ask: Did God not also speak with us? ”

Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza
in her keynote presentation at FutureChurch's
June 13 Women and the Word Conference.
