Abstract
Are feminist theologians important for the Church today? Dr. Maria Pilar Aquino discusses the need for feminist theologians not only to focus on women’s concerns, but the need of the whole church for reshaping. From this example, she remarks on the need of all lay people to call upon their own concerns and create a sort of “democratic and participatory” Church.
