Synopsis
This book offers a feminist theological and ethical exploration of women and beauty "from the ground up." Drawing on women's activities as sources of insight into the nature of beauty, and as inspiration for connecting beauty and goodness, Ross presents a unique reflection that will offer challenges to anyone interested in theological aesthetics or women's issues.
