Windows on a Woman's World - Susannah Grant

Windows on a Woman's World - Susannah Grant

Susannah Grant was given full access to the congregation's rich archives in order to write this book, from the point of view of an 'outsider'.

In this moving and beautifully written book she chronicles the astonishing transformation of the New Zealand Dominican sisters from a strictly enclosed body of religious teachers to a congregation of religious women who are integrated in the wider community and engaged in a range of active ministries while still remaining deeply committed to shared Dominican ideals.

Susannah Grant has a PhD in History from the University of Otago and has completed a large number of oral histories with the sisters.
