Sexism and God-Talk is one of the iconic texts of feminist theology, and a landmark of constructive feminist critique. Using feminist theology as a tool to expose the male-centred bias of classical theology, Ruether articulates a faith that incorporates both genders in their totality, and which thus embraces a full humanity.
