Walking in Solidarity

Walking in Solidarity

Dominican Women and the Struggle for Economic Justice in the Modern United States

(p.99) Walking in Solidarity
Preaching with Their Lives

Heath W. Carter

Fordham University Press

This chapter situates religious women such as Dominican Sister Vincent Ferrer as vital players in the history of capitalism in the modern United States. Throughout the New Deal era Ferrer traveled the country to give major addresses about the church’s teaching on economic questions, even as she helped to raise awareness of the same at the Catholic grassroots. Her story speaks to the ways that Dominican women have brought the encyclical tradition to life on the ground, a trend that continues through to the present day, as the chapter explores in two closing contemporary vignettes.
