Rosemary Radford Ruether's lecture calls white Christian feminists to be mindful of their "single-issue western... critique is false and dangerous." The rich diversities of women's experience demand a diversity of issues, priorities and tactics. It is, as Professor Ruether reminds us, in the dialogue of western Christian women with "third world" Christian women, that "white western feminism becomes clearly one feminism among others, rather than...'feminism as such.'"
