Gender, autonomy, and what our bodies mean: A conversation with Abigail Favale and Leah Libresco Sargeant

May 11, 2022

What does it mean to be a man or a woman? How do we talk about gender in a world that seems confused about the most basic realities of our bodies? What does Christianity bring to the table in discussions of feminism and women’s roles? Dr. Abigail Favale’s new book “The Genesis of Gender: A Christian Theory” (https://bit.ly/3KUyO01) grapples with these questions and more. In this episode, Favale speaks with Leah Libresco Sargeant, author of “Building the Benedict Option: A Guide to Gathering Two or Three Together in His Name” (https://bit.ly/3Fyacta) and the “Other Feminisms” Substack (https://otherfeminisms.substack.com/), about Favale’s new book and how the Catholic view of the human person can help us understand and communicate the beauty and challenges of our sexed bodies.
