Research line: Theology, Values and Social Dynamics (TVSD)

The feminine question is today one of the most relevant challenges for the Christian Churches, for the different religions and for society in general. In fact, even in democratic countries, legal equality for women is still far from translating into genuine social, professional, cultural, familiar and religious equality. The focus of this project is the role of religion in this situation and the question whether religious belief is an obstacle or emancipation factor for women. Our main objective will be to construct 'virtuous' modalities in order to address this issue in view of a more open and fruitful dialogue between the subjects involved.
