The recent papal visit to Ireland drew serious attention to the dark side of the Catholic Church: discrimination against women and LGBTI persons, and various forms of abuse carried out by clergy and members of religious institutions.

For over forty years, Dr. Mary Hunt has been at the coalface of worldwide struggles on the part of women to reclaim Christian and other religious traditions from the grip of patriarchal control and clerical misogynies that strangle women’s voices, discriminate against LGBTI people, and enable abuse and its concealment.. Drawing on her extensive experience, in this evening event, Mary Hunt will present an overview of the history, challenges, and current directions in the fields of feminist theology, ethics, and ritual, and point to fruitful directions that might take us forward in Ireland.
