Katharine Rhodes Henderson, Gods Troublemakers: How Women of Faith Are Changing the World (Allen and Unwin 2006).
God's Troublemakers is based on extensive interviews with 11
women, including: Sr. Helen Prejean, the anti-death-penalty activist;
Ruth Messenger, former Manhattan Borough President and now executive
director of American Jewish World Service; and Helen LaKelly Hunt, who
has been a national activist funding women's causes and a leader in
persuading secular feminists to make common cause with religious women.
This is a book about women who are leaders in the public arena. They are
religious or socio-ethical entrepreneurs, who have established
organisations or movements with a social change agenda. The book looks
at how they exercise public leadership in a world where women's
public roles are sometimes still suspect.
