Letters to the Editor

Women’s Voices

Dear Editor: In early May, twenty ladies gathered together in the home of Sister Ave Clark to be part of a listening discussion on “Celebrating Women’s Voices” lead by Dr. Gloria Durka. Dr. Durka taught Theology at Fordham University for 34 years. We were remembering women who have struggled for justice and the good of all people from Phoebe and Perpetua to Julian of Norwich and Joan of Arc to Dorothy Day and Mother Theresa.

For almost three hours, Dr. Durka took us on an exciting journey, using poetry and story to bring these women’s stories to life. At the end of the morning, we all wished that we could have been in some of Dr. Durka’s classes at Fordham.
