Professor Gale Kenny Publishes a New Book

This month sees the publication of Gale Kenny’s new book, Christian Imperial Feminism, by NYU Press.

Amidst the global instability of the early twentieth century, white Christian American women embraced the idea of an “empire of Christ” that was racially diverse, but which they believed they were uniquely qualified to manage. America’s burgeoning power, combined with women’s rising roles within the church, led to white Protestant women adopting a feminism rooted in religion and imperialism.
