A FEMINEST PERSPECTIVE ON THEOLOGY WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO BLACK FEMINIST THEOLOGY

Joyce Masenya

Abstract


Feminist theology is defined in the broader context of feminism. A review of how theology was practised in the past is given in order to highlight the exclusion of women in any serious theological endeavour. Feminist theology emerges as women’s plea for recognition as full and equal human beings in the practise of theology. The situation of black women is portrayed. In conclusion, a proposed black/African feminist reading of the Bible is presented as one of the possible ways of liberating black/African women theologically.

Keywords
