Why have peace theologies been so absent in helping to address, prevent and end the rampant global violence against women? Why have Just War theories even been complicit in justifying violence, including violence against women?
In this Webinar, Dr. Thistlethwaite will introduce these topics from her new book, Women's Bodies as Battlefield: Christian Theology and the Global War on Women, and propose deepening the Just Peace paradigm to better address both the war on women and war today, including adding body theologies and trauma theory.
- Moderator: Rev. Michael Neuroth, Policy Advocate on International Issues for the United Church of Christ’s Justice and Witness Ministries
- Presenter: Dr. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, Professor of Theology and former President at Chicago Theological Seminary, and one of the original architects of the Just Peace paradigm.
