On this episode of The VUU, we are joined by the Rev. Diane Miller and Dr. Mary Hunt. Our conversation looks back at the influence of feminism on theology and ministry in the 1970s and 1980s and whether much has changed within Unitarian Universalism, Catholicism, and liberal Protestant denominations. Plus, Diane and Mary share first-hand stories about learning from such luminaries as Judith Plaskow, Rosemary Ruether, and Mary Daly.
