Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other
women of faith across the United States are
amplifying their voices, insisting on religious and
cultural transformation. From diverse religious
backgrounds, these women critique social and

justice activism admit many obstacles, yet they
are fueled by both faith and a passionate determination
to carry on the work for social change
