Women theology bloggers: a go-to list

Michael L. Westmoreland-White (Levellers) — himself an academic theologian and Baptist minister’s husband — lists some women who blog academic theology. Or academic theology bloggers who are women. Or bloggers who happen to write about theology while being women in an academic way. Take your pick. (If you know of others, he’s taking additions to the list in his comments section.)

While I’m not a grand proponent of dividing academic and applied theology, it’s handy to have a list to broaden your reading. And if you are both a woman and a(n academic) theologian, but not a blogger, this might inspire you to jump in.

In any case, it’s more rewarding and dignified than worrying if your breasts are the right size for your career. (Surviving the Workplace)

  1. Well, I wasn’t personally worried about my breast size…. I do think that there is a large amount of generalized career advice for women that focuses on physical attributes as if it’s a moral imperative to present a certain appearance for men, which is what was at the root of the bOOb woman’s interview and book.

  2. By worry, I meant that double standard put upon women to make their physical, even sexual, attractiveness match their professional assets if they are expected to succeed. (Good grooming is another matter.)

    I’m sorry if I suggested otherwise.

  3. Ah, all right. I thought you were saying I was preoccupied with breasts (and, if I’m honest with myself, you’d be right about that). I have at least two other breast and the workplace-related posts that I’ve drafted. There’s actually far more information than anyone would want to read….

    And thanks for the female theologian link. That’s a good list.
