Margaret O'Brien Steinfels

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses Margaret O'Brien Steinfels's life as a "woman". It presents several claims based on her faith and personal experiences. The first claim states that life is a continuing set of relationships and responsibilities that shape people's response to revolutionary change. The second argument points that great social and cultural changes show up only incrementally in the lives of most individuals. The third claim holds that there must be people ready for revolutions to take off. The fourth claim reveals that Steinfels found out that men were her allies in Loyola University. The fifth argument holds that Catholics and Catholic women were ready for revolution in women's lives. It is also one that could use some serious Catholic correctives about abortion, about community, and about the permanent responsibility of marital relationships. The chapter concludes with some editorial notes dated August 31, 2003.
