Catholic Feminists - Call for Essays

A book project of interest:

Call for Essays

Are you a young feminist theologian?
Are you struggling to reconcile your faith and your feminism?
Feel like you have something to say about it?
Then this project might be for you!

If you are under the age of 30, are Catholic*, and are a feminist, your essays are needed for a forthcoming book on feminism and the challenges and issues facing young feminists in the Catholic Church.

Submit an essay on one or more of the following topics: sexuality, sexual ethics, complicity, women’s ordination, the role of faith in action, etc. Any topic you think applies to faith and feminism is fair game.

All submissions are due no later than May 15, 2006.
See submission guidelines below.

*By Catholic, we mean those who call themselves Catholic, those who don’t but are, and really anyone who is somehow involved with the Church (students at Catholic colleges and universities, volunteers, lay ministers, etc).

Submission guidelines:
- No shorter than 5 and no longer than 25 double-spaced pages.
- All documents must be in Microsoft Word format.
- All citations must be in Chicago Manual Style and should appear as footnotes.
- All submissions should include: author’s name, author’s contact information, title of the paper, and full bibliography.
- Papers may be submitted as attachments via email to youngcatholicfeminists@yahoo.com or they mail be mailed to the address below. All papers submitted via mail must be accompanied by a CD containing the file.
