Quaker Women and Social Justice: learning from their experience
19 in stock
What might we learn about social justice from Quaker history? This online course will look at social and economic concerns of some Quaker women activists, both British and American, in the 1800’s and early 1900’s. We will consider their strategies, motivation, and the faith basis of their work in the context of society at the time. Through readings and friendly discussion, participants will come to share our enthusiasm for these pioneering leaders and will gain insight into modern manifestations of social injustice.
This course can be completed in your own time, although we recommend setting aside 2-3 hours a week.
Each week there will be video, audio and written materials for you to engage with, and forums for you to share reflections and ask questions.
This course is intended for anyone with an interest in Quakers and social justice. No prior knowledge of either is necessary.
Juliana Minihan and Martin Layton
