Learning to Be a Woman: Feminist Theological Reflections on Sex Education in Church Schools
Isherwood, Lisa
Sex Education: Sexuality, Society and Learning, v4 n3 p273-283 2004
This article suggests that sex education in Church schools should address the personal as political through proclaiming the liberating potential of incarnational theology. The author suggests that Christian sex educators should be alert to the construction and commodification of desire and its attendant capitalist implications. While resisting this grand narrative they should encourage the young to embrace their own human/divine natures and dance in the sensuality of their erotic power.
