Into the Paradox: Feminist Politics, Conservative Spirit
As a practicing Catholic and feminist scholar, Toni McNaron embraces the seemingly unresolvable and accepts the inherent paradox arising from her preference for conservative spiritual practices while remaining committed to radical politics.
Residing patiently in this “uncomfortable mystery” has allowed her to plunge into the deeper spaces of her spirit—not insisting on consistency or certainty or even agreement as she strives to deepen her connection with the God of her understanding in today’s post-modern and post-Christendom world.
Toni McNaron is an educator, memoirist and lesbian feminist critic. She taught literature and Women’s Studies at the University of Minnesota for thirty-seven years, and was founder and chair of the Women’s Studies Program, the Center for Advanced Feminist Studies, and the GLBT Studies Program.
