A Conversation with Letha Dawson Scanzoni
Tuesday, April 27, 2010
1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT
Letha Dawson Scanzoni is an independent scholar and writer
specializing in the intersection between religion and social issues.
She has written on such topics as feminism, relationships of love and
friendship, self-esteem and personal growth, human diversity, marriage
and family living, divorce, aging and care giving, sexuality and
gender, sex ethics, social justice-oriented folk music, and physical
and psychological family violence.
She is the author or coauthor of nine books. She co-authored with
Virginia Ramey Mollenkott the influential book Is the Homosexual My
Neighbor? With Nancy Hardesty she coauthored All We’re Meant to Be,
which helped launch the biblical feminist movement in the 1970s.
Letha is editor of Christian Feminism Today, a publication of the
Evangelical and Ecumenical Women’s Caucus (formerly titled EEWC
Update). She is also the content provider for the EEWC website and
writes the “Web Explorations for Christian Feminists” featured on that
site. In addition, she coauthors the 72-27 blog, “A
cross-generational dialogue between two Christian feminists,” with
Kimberly B. George.
Letha Scanzoni wrote “Why We Need Evangelical Feminists,” a chapter in
the forthcoming WATER collection, New Feminist Christianity: Many
Voices, Many Views edited by Mary E. Hunt and Diann L. Neu, to be
published in July 2010 by SkyLight Paths Publishing. We will feature
more of the volume’s authors on these calls throughout the year.
Please feel free to join us on the call for a fascinating discussion
with a highly respected colleague. We are delighted to work with the

traditions. So gather some friends, have lunch, and join in the
