The writings of Sue Hiatt, considered “bishop to the women” and leader of the movement that led to the ordination of women in the Episcopal Church.

Quiet, introspective, passionate, strong-minded, Sue Hiatt’s road to Christian feminism began as a teenager. These writings, alongside material by Carter Heyward and others critical to the movement, are a vital source of study, reflection, and inspiration.

She was among the first group of women ordained in Philadelphia in 1974.
