It's been asked by Congressmen and Political commentators - what does it mean to be a woman? Maybe the better question is, how did we get to the point where people are at such a crossroads when it comes to the definition? Is this a conversation that should matter to feminists? To people of faith? Join us for a conversation with feminist scholar and Catholic convert Abigail Favale.

Join us for a live workshop on Wednesday July 13 from 8-9pm CST.

Her latest book The Genesis of Gender: A Christian Theory was just released in June 2022 by Ignatius Press. Abigail was received into the Catholic Church in 2014, and her conversion memoir, Into the Deep: An Unlikely Catholic Conversion, traces her journey from birthright evangelicalism to postmodern feminism to Roman Catholicism. Abigail's essays and short stories have appeared in print and online for publications such as First Things, The Atlantic, Church Life, and Potomac Review. She was awarded the J.F. Powers Prize for short fiction in 2017. Abigail lives with her husband and four children in South Bend, Indiana.
