This morning, Buzzfeed’s site for long form writing published four profiles of women from four different faiths who are struggling for feminist reform within their religious traditions.

Filed under the heading "Feminism + Faith," it features profiles of Sara Hurwitz' s ongoing journey to become the first publicly ordained Orthodox Jewish Rabba; Kate Kelly’s fight for the ordination of Mormon women; and Zainah Anwar’s quest for true equality for Muslim women.

The fourth profile is of Sister Elizabeth Johnson, written by me. It’s quite different from the piece I recently wrote for NCR about her new book and her reemergence after her conflict with the US Bishop’s doctrinal committee. Think of it as “Elizabeth Johnson 101.”

Enjoy getting to know these remarkable women!
