Beyond Feminism - The Woman of Faith in Action
Beyond Feminism - The Woman of Faith in Action Author:Marilyn Brown Oden The pre-twenty-first century woman -- who is she? What is her role? What are her responsibilities? her rewards? Marilyn Brown Oden looks beyond the popular feminism to a new dimension; from imitation of the other sex to innovation; to a future of excellence, "a future whose possibilities for physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth would mat... more »ch the potentialities of every newborn babe around the world."
All women -- married, single, widowed, divorced -- have a new freedom to seek means of self-expression. Yet how can a woman make her contribution to society beyond the home and at the same time take seriously the needs of her family? Mrs. Oden calls for re-evaluation of woman's life cycle, for better career guidance, and for recognition of woman's capabilities for caring in a world so in need of attention. She suggests new models and new opportunites.
Most importantly, Mrs. Oden urges a woman to recognize that God created her; therefore, she is a person of worth. The Christian feminist realizes that her responsibility is for the future of her family, community, and world. She gives of herself, seeking no rewards, but acting for the benefit of others in response to her own worth.« less
