How do you live the feminist dream? Kate Bryan summons a small army of her heroes to answer that question-- Mary Agnes Cullen (her mother, "the original feminist"), Rosa Parks, Joan of Arc, Rachael Denhollander, Catherine of Siena, Shania Twain, John Paul II, Malala Yousafzai, Mary of Nazareth. But to sum it all up she turns to another of her feminist heroes, Dolly Parton--"Find out who you are and do it on purpose."
For Bryan this is genuine feminism--"Find out who you are, who you were created to be. And every day, live that out. You have a purpose. God wants you to leave a unique mark on the people in your life, on this world. Find out who you were meant to be and live that out. Doing that will give others the passion, zeal, and courage to find out who they have been created to be and embrace the life that they were created for. By living our authentic lives we will change the world."
This is the first book of the Magenta series, edited by Charles Camosy. The Magenta project brings together authors who will treat important topics from the standpoint of Christian conviction without being trapped in a polarized mindset. In this volume, Kate Bryan looks at feminism from a Christian perspective, demonstrating through personal stories and a keen eye for contemporary life that Christianity has a profound message for women today.
