Is it possible to be both a Catholic and a feminist? Claire Swinarski, writer and creator of The Catholic Feminist podcast, believes it is: 'I'm a feminist for the same reason I'm bold and honest and sometimes ragey: because Jesus was all of those things.' In Girl, Arise!, Swinarski reconciles the two identities by demonstrating the strength and abilities women have to share with the Body of Christ, the importance of women throughout the history of the faith, and how the love you experience through Christ and the Church can change you and the world around you. Swinarski points out that while both 'feminism' and 'Catholicism' can mean different things to different people, both feminists and Catholics desire to make the world a better, fairer place. And she shows that by treating women with dignity equal to that of men-by calling them his friends and teaching them-Jesus acted as a feminist as well. Swinarski also tells the stories of holy women-including Vashti in the book of Esther, Sts. Therese of Lisieux and Joan of Arc, Mary Magdalene, and the Blessed Virgin Mary-to show how their faith influenced their actions, even when those actions went against traditional norms and roles of women.
