Loretto Honors Women of Spirit, Courage and Action
The Loretto Feminist Network is a voluntary association of feminists in the larger Loretto Community. LFN is committed to act for the empowerment of women and all people. Network members agree to work toward transforming institutional, personal and structural relationships based on domination and subordination, both within the Loretto Community and beyond it.
The Loretto Feminist Network stands in solidarity with others working for the empowerment of all people both nationally and internationally. The network acts within Loretto and in the public forum. For more information about LFN and its work, visit the Loretto Feminist Network (LFN) webpage.
LFN recently published the booklet, “Women of Spirit, Courage and Action.” It’s a collection of profiles and stories of members of the Loretto Community and women across the world who have made a difference by promoting change, working for justice and acting for peace. The booklet’s content is meant to prompt interest, dialogue, learning and commitment among those who are the future of change and all of us who want to leave a legacy of working for justice.
We hope readers of these stories and those responding to the questions and activities presented in the booklet will be inspired to continue this work in the spirit of Loretto and in the context of the 21st century and all its challenges. This week on Loretto’s Facebook page, check out the excerpts from LFN’s “Women of Spirit, Courage and Action.”
