dc.description.abstract

One of the primary motivating factors of this project was my sense that many women seminarians quickly forget the “gift of God” that is within them shortly after their arrival at Duke Divinity School. The strong sense of call they had, which led them to this place often gives way to doubt, insecurity, and “timidity.” I have witnessed many women hide their brilliant questions, insightful comments, and leadership gifts. I have noticed a deep and difficult struggle on the part of many women to claim their authority, intelligence, and voice.
