Standing up straight: a self-reflective resource for United States Dominican women on the charism of preaching
Author
Mary Ann Wiesemann-Mills
Abstract
This project enables United States Dominican women to claim identity as preachers through a progressive study of baptismal charism, religious life as charism, the Dominican charism, women's historical situation both in society and in the Order, and critical concerns of the current global situation. The project took shape in dialogue with qualitative research techniques--including questionnaires, focus groups, and interviews--yielding the conclusion that United States Dominican women, for so long hesitant to identify themselves as preachers, stand now in readiness to claim their rightful identity.
