    1. I love it when a book answers questions that I didn't expect to have addressed. I grew up in a household without a father, and my mother's example of feminism came with an un/healthy dose of anger and hatred. It is understandable to me as an adult: she suffered countless indignities and barriers. For example, as one of three staff members in the National office of ERAmerica, she found out that the male secretary was being paid more! So she quit. One can survive on anger, but one cannot live. I w [...]


    2. This is the most amazing book, and I would recommend any feminist read it. This book is what intersectionality truly is. There are Black, Asain, White, and Native women giving their perspectives on feminism. There are women of all different sects from each religion including Catholics, Mormons, Orthodox Jews, Reform Jews, and Shi'a Muslims. There are multiple LGBT women. This book is a challenge to those in religious traditions who silence women and religious critics who insist women in traditio [...]


    3. Once I started reading it, I had to share it. I proposed it to my Interfaith Book Club, and viola, they loved it. We had a spirited discussion on how much we women from all faiths have in common. The men in our book club loved it too. The book tells the story also of how men in the lives of women have helped them achieve their independence and find their calling.


    4. I enjoy reading people's stories of why they hold their beliefs and why they stay in religions or leave them. In this book many young women tell why, in spite of being feminists, they have chosen to stay in their particular Abrahamic faith despite experiencing its deeply patriarchal aspects.


    5. I am a firm believer that books cross our paths when they are meant to. This book appeared like a beacon of light and hope as I was randomly looking through my library collection. My main struggle with religion and even my Christian faith is the idea God created me as "a lesser being." Some in other reviews say they were disappointed as this book was not uplifting or positive enough, but to that I say these women are standing up against divine texts thousands of years old, of course its an uphil [...]


    6. I read this for Book Riot's 2016 Read Harder challenge. It's not bad, but I just could not get into it. It took a real effort to finish.


    7. I learned about this book because a friend of a friend is a contributor. I really like the concept for various women who are part of one of the three Abrahamic faiths to tell how being a feminist is in line with their devotion to their faith.There were 15 Jews, 15 Muslim and 15 Christians, all from America. I think the outline would be better if they would have put them every other one instead of random.Some were very academic, while others were straight personal stories. A few were inspiring an [...]


    8. I thought I would be interested in Faithfully Feminist, but I expected that my engagement would be largely academic. I looked forward to analyzing and comparing the personal essays of 45 Christian, Jewish, and Muslim feminists. I did not expect that I would be moved by the stories of these women, so deeply moved. I have heard Joanna Brooks speak about the power of telling our stories, but I have never been quite sure of what that power really was. I suspected that it was something about identity [...]


    9. I read this book very slowly over the past several months, a few essays every weekend. It was less encouraging than I expected - more frustration and compromise than empowerment or freedom. But at the same time it was affirming to see smart, aggressive, confrontational women decide to make space for the faith traditions they were raised with - the parts of it that still mattered to them - amid newer ideas that they've come to value. It was also interesting to hear the same concepts and fights ec [...]


    10. I started the book with great expectations. It is a collection of short essays by Christian, Jewish and Muslim women. They all describe how their faith is central to their identity and how they manage to live their faith and their feminism (often not much defined). I had hope to find discussions on how women deal with discriminatory practices, with difficult texts in their respective holy Scriptures. There are examples how women adjust, make changes, but very little on dealing with difficult tex [...]


    11. This book and its 45 short chapters provided ample good material for a monthly women's interfaith discussion group.
