In personal new memoirs, Cameron Dezen Hammon (This Is My Body) and Lyz Lenz (Godland) dissect the psychological, spiritual and emotional implications of finding feminism within Christian doctrine and community. How does faith fit into a life lived with eyes wide open to cultural movements for equity and representation? How did these women find meaning, truth, and spiritual nourishment in systems established not to hear them?
