This innovative volume brings together essays on women's religious experiences in both Europe and the Americas during the colonial era. Four European countries-France, Spain, The Netherlands, and England-and four of their respective colonies-Quebec, Peru, New Amsterdam
(New York), and New England-are examined. The collection provides the first comparative look at gender and religion throughout the Atlantic World.
Brings together key articles in feminist ethics and social-political theory, highlighting prominent concerns in contemporary feminist scholarship and the advances that feminist philosophers have made. The articles are organized around seven topics: constructions of gender; figurations of women/women as figuration; subjectivity, agency, and feminist critique; social identity, solidarity, and political engagement; care and its critics; and women, equality, and justice.
