Resumen

Feminist theologies in the U.S. are the reason why gender has changed religions. Feminist studies in religion and social activism go hand in hand. These twin foci form a useful backdrop for understanding contemporary feminist spirituality which is a concrete coupling of religious dynamics and feminist action. That spirituality is the product of feminist work in religion and has an impact on society. Brief descriptions of a small sample of the groups that continue to deepen this work point to a bright future for feminist theologies despite backlash and obstacles.

Las teologías feministas desarrolladas en los Estados Unidos están logrando transformar las religiones a través del foco puesto en la categoría de género. Los estudios feministas sobre religión y el activismo social van de la mano y estos focos gemelos forman un telón de fondo que permite comprender la espiritualidad feminista contemporánea, que acompasa de forma concreta y práctica la dinámica religiosa y la acción feminista. Esa espiritualidad es fruto del trabajo feminista en religión y tiene un impacto en la sociedad. En este trabajo se presentarán breves descripciones de unos pocos grupos que continúan profundizando la labor feminista y que apuntan a un futuro brillante para las teologías feministas a pesar de los obstáculos y las resistencias.
