Dream of a Church enlivened by the rich diversity of women’s voices.

Tina is interested in the many ways in which women’s lives and voices form part of the Catholic theological tradition, from the rich resources of medieval mysticism and Marian theology and devotion to the challenges facing women in Church and society today. These include issues of women’s religious leadership and representation, the struggles of women in situations of poverty, violence and maternal mortality, and changing attitudes to gender and sexuality.

In addition to her academic work, Tina works widely with parishes, schools and religious communities, as well as contributing to the media. Her work is inspired by the Catholic understanding of the sacramentality of creation and the dignity and equality of the human, male and female, made in the image of God.

“As a Scottish woman from Africa living in England I dream of a Church enlivened by the rich diversity of women’s voices”.
