AWRC is pleased to present this module book, Telling HerStory: Introduction to an Asian Feminist Re-reading of History, the second book from its 5-year project to develop “Modules on Asian Feminist Theologies” which began in 2004.

Similar to the first module book, this second book is limited in scope and thus is not a comprehensive module on Asian Feminist Theologies.

Firstly, the subject of feminist history is not only broad but also new among AWRC membership and network.  Secondly, feminist historical scholarship in Asia is fairly recent.  Thirdly, there are very few Christian women/feminist historians in Asia; and even among them it is yet to be recognized that uncovering women’s hidden history is a necessary task.

Despite these and many other limitations, AWRC recognizes that an Asian feminist re-reading of history is most urgent and necessary in doing a critical feminist theology of liberation. Thus, this module book is an introductory course that serves only as an exploratory and humble beginning.

This second book is divided into 3 parts.

  1. Part I highlights the importance of reconstructing our own herstory and presents a module of a process to realise the importance of our own social biographies;
  2. Part II is the collection of input papers by four feminist theologians to address the theme of “Herstory” from an Asian feminist perspective; and
  3. Part III presents 8-step guidelines for critically re-reading history and reconstructing herstory; and includes a biblical text to show how they can be used.
