About this title


"A series of encounters has been taking place for some time now between Christianity and various kinds of feminists and feminist theory. In these conversations, "woman" is understood within different―Christian and feminist―imaginaries . Negotiating between these two approaches has sometimes been very difficult and remains challenging. This book supports the work of building bridges between these two imaginaries by developing an understanding of female subjectivity―called here, female genius―that can move, even flourish within both environments."
―From Chapter 1
Because of Beauvoir does what many say is impossible: it demonstrates how women can flourish, without conflict, while being simultaneously Christian and feminist. Alison Jasper offers a vision of Julia Kristeva's "female genius" as the capacity of women to thrive and cultivate intellect within and across different cultural and theological environments. Using the writings of English women from the 17th through the 21st centuries as living profiles, Jasper draws upon the creative power in the lives of real women to recognize and retrieve a female subjectivity―one that determines how women see and are seen after Simone de Beauvoir.
