Reading, Feminism, and Spirituality free pdf Reading, Feminism and Spirituality tackles the complex relationship between feminism and religion. Through wide-ranging analysis, Dawn Llewellyn explores the generational and secular meanings of the feminist "wave" metaphor, highlighting the disconnections it creates between feminist cohorts, and feminist studies and religious feminisms. Drawing on in-depth qualitative research, she uses women's spiritual reading practices to uncover new commonalities between second and third wave feminism and sacred and secular experiences. Her lively approach highlights the importance of reading cultures in feminist studies and connects women's voices across feminist generations, literary practices, and religion to ultimately trouble the waves.
