Jesuit and Feminist Education

Susan A. Ross

Fordham University Press

This chapter explores some of the issues that continue to be a challenge for women, particular women who identify as feminists, at Jesuit institutions. The starting point is what has happened at Loyola University Chicago over the last ten years, as a follow-up to an earlier assessment. This chapter focuses on three areas: academics, administration, and atmosphere. While these three areas are not comprehensive and have a fair amount of overlap, they provide some measure of the situation for feminists in Jesuit higher education at the end of the first decade of the twenty-first century. It argues that there is much, much more work that needs to be done before feminist women and men can be completely comfortable at Jesuit institutions.
