Women Together

Join the women of St. Paul’s Cathedral for guest speakers and discussions on what it means to be a Christian woman in a diverse world. Together we seek to deepen our faith as we interact with the world and explore the challenges women everywhere face in their daily lives. We’re grateful to share this journey with you.

“Womanist Ways of Being & Knowing: Understanding Survival As a Theological Virtue in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple

“Womanist” is a term first coined by Alice Walker in her exposition of the sacred inner lives of Southern Black Women, focusing on the spiritual principles of self-love, love of the Spirit, survival, and wholeness. This lecture considers the meaning of moral virtue and the theo-ethical significance of survival within a context of cultural and intimate partner violence.
