This collection of original essays comprises an international "who's who" of women theologians writing on a topic that impacts the lives of women everywhere. In December 1994, forty-five outstanding feminist theologians from around the world met in Costa Rica to discuss the impact of violence against women. For a full week these theologians dialogued on the many forms of violence: economic, military, cultural, ecological, domestic, and physical violence. From this multivoice dialogue, 'Women Resisting Violence' offers a truly global, truly cutting-edge resource on the implications of violence against women.
Endorsements & Reviews-
"Unremitting and interminable, the obscenity and brutality of violence suffered by women is named, only to occur again and again and again. Will it never end? The pain permeates the being of all women when we confront the unrelenting evil done to women in war and in times of so-called peace."
