Mujerista Legacy

by Ricardo Moreno | September-October 2012

I really appreciated your article about Ada María Isasi-Díaz, “The Mother of Mujerista Theology” (by Rose Marie Berger, July 2012). I had the privilege of taking a summer course with her at the Hispanic Summer Program. Coming from a Latino macho culture, where most of ministry is in the hands of males while the majority of churches are composed of women, it was refreshing to hear her voice claiming women’s equality in ministry, not only at the parish level but also in academia and church leadership. Her voice will be greatly missed, but her pioneering work in mujerista theology will continue through the voices of the generations of women scholars through the U.S.
