Towards an Understanding of Woman as Imago Dei

by Pia de Solenni

Woman is created in the image of God. Like man, she is created for the purpose of knowing — ultimately knowing God. True feminism, therefore, respects woman’s essential identity as an image of God. Where she differs from man, a true feminism understands that these differences are constructive and complementary.

Awarded the Pontifical Prize of the Academies by Pope John Paul II, Towards an Understanding of Woman as Imago Deiexamines various feminist theories in light of the anthropology and theology of St. Thomas Aquinas.
