Preview

Drawing on a history course offered at Valparaiso University called Faith and Feminism in America, this chapter offers concrete examples of several teaching methods that reflect how feminist consciousness-raising among students intersects with the Jesuit practice of discernment. It discusses strategies that nurture the consciousness-raising central to feminist and Jesuit learning among a religiously mixed, though predominantly Protestant, and fairly conservative group of students.
