On Wednesday 20th January 2016, the University of Roehampton celebrated the launch of the UK publication, Catholic Women Speak: Bringing Our Gifts to the Table.
Catholic Women Speak is a groundbreaking, thought-provoking anthology of essays on women and family life that asks questions and explores issues that do not find space for open discussion in the Church. The writers are women who represent a broad international perspective and come from a variety of personal backgrounds who believe that the Church cannot come to a wise and informed understanding of family life without listening to women.
The launch was co-hosted by the Digby Stuart Research Centre for Religion, Society and Human Flourishing; Digby Stuart College and Alban Books.
The event also celebrated the relaunch of the Catherine of Siena College, an online college for courses in theology, gender and social justice, which is now being administered by the University of Roehampton. The Susanna Wesley Foundation is working in close collaboration with the Catherine of Siena College, which brings an important ecumenical dimension to our identity and work.
