Changing social realities in recent history have contributed to changing relationships between women and men, creating new patterns of family life, adjusting the economic equation between men and women, and enlarging women's expectations. These realities demand not only new social attitudes and policies, but new social structures. They are making new claims on traditional social systems - governments, schools, families, churches, synagogues, social services and businesses. Transforming Feminism is an invitation to engage in the dialogue between feminist perspectives and Catholic social thought in the search for a feminism that holds promise for true human liberations both in the church and in society. It aims at developing a sound, feminist revision of Catholic social thinking.
