Valerie Saiving Papers

Valerie Saiving taught Religious Studies at the Colleges from 1959 to 1987. She is often hailed as a founder of feminist religion with her 1960 article "The Human Situation: A Feminine View" originally published in the Journal of Religion. In the article she forms what can be called a feminine complaint against contemporary theologians who make the mistake, she believes, of assuming that a "thinking man's theology is equally good for a thinking woman."

Valerie Saiving received the Distinguished Faculty Award last year and her daughter, Emily Gray donated her papers to our archives. You can access the Finding Aid to her papers via the Archives web site.
