Welcome to “Feminists Talk Religion” where feminist voice, religion-talk, and honest conversation intersect. “Feminists Talk Religion” is a project of the CoLaboratory branch of Feminist Studies in Religion. The Lab fosters community through digital and in-person opportunities to connect with others navigating the complicated world of religious studies, identity, and activism. "Feminists Talk Religion” is a platform for feminist discussions about all things related to religion. It is an opportunity to hear from new and old voices, to be challenged to learn about and from the scholastic world of another, and to have discussions we might not have otherwise. It is a space where the historically marginalized, especially women, are taken seriously.
