"Only now in Nancy Howell's do we have a thematic treatment of the potential contributions of Whitehead to the development of feminist cosmology." -- John B. Cobb, Jr., Emeritus Professor of Religion, Claremont Graduate School
"This intricate interweaving of feminist theory and process theology is both relational and persuasive. -- Linda J. Tessier, Professor of Religion, Youngstown State University
From the Inside Flap
Howell expresses ecofeminist principles in conversation with a wide spectrum of women's voices from diverse ethnic backgrounds and social strata. She moves beyond mere acknowledgment of differing perspectives within the women's movement and seriously engages criticisms of race-privileged white feminism by African American ("womanist") and Latin American ("mujerista") activists.
A FEMINIST COSMOLOGY calls for a self-critical reformation of feminist thought with reverence for the diversity of relationships among women, the deep interdependence of humanity and the ecosystem, and ultimately the variety of theological perspectives relating the world to God.
