   schema:description "This groundbreaking book documents, in the words of the women themselves, the pain, frustration, and creative tension experienced by those who embrace feminist values within the context of institutional religion. It reveals how a growing number of them are taking responsibility for their own spiritual and religious lives. Hundreds of women from all denominations also speak here of an emerging feminist spirituality supported and nurtured in women's groups which transcend traditional religious boundaries. Responding to the call to live justly, women are celebrating their own liturgies, envisioning a more inclusive future, and empowering one another to challenge patriarchal religion, and they are in the process redefining Church. The book shows that many of these women are remaining within the established churches, but on their own terms, as potential agents of transformation in congregations and denominations, as women who are "defecting in place.""@en ;
