Susan Draper White Lectures in Women's Studies: We're Persisting

Twenty-five years ago, Mary Farrell Bednarowski launched a radical gathering of leading feminist/womanist/mujerista/asian theologians as the first keynote at the Re-Imagining Conference in Minneapolis. The 1993 conference brought together clergy, laypeople, and theologians from a variety of Christian denominations and sparked a national debate on feminist theology. At this year’s Susan Draper White lectures, Mary will reflect on where we have been since Re-Imagining and where we are going in the era of the Women’s and #metoo. On day two of the lectures, Mary will explore What Persisting Looks Like with panelists Sherry Jordan, Sara Wilhelm Garbers, and Pamela Ayo Yetunde. Admission is free but limited.
