By Amanda Izzo
concentrating on the histories of 2 hugely influential teams, the younger Women’s Christian organization of the united states, an interdenominational Protestant association, and the Maryknoll Sisters, a Roman Catholic non secular order, Izzo deals new views at the contributions of those girls to transnational social routine, women’s background, and spiritual experiences, as she lines the connections among turn-of-the-century Christian women’s reform tradition and liberal and left-wing non secular social events of the Sixties and Nineteen Seventies. Izzo means that shared moral, theological, and institutional underpinnings can go beyond denominational divides, and that thoughts for social swap usually linked to secular feminism have ties to spiritually encouraged social pursuits.
