Sojourner Truth, one of the women profiled in the book.

Can you name even one American religious leader who is a woman?  The people who garner attention from the general public tend to be men. 

But there are plenty of examples of women working in spiritual matters who have had great influence. 

Adrian Shirk, who teaches women's studies and creative writing, writes of these remarkable women in And Your Daughters Shall Prophesy: Stories from the Byways of American Women and Religion.  Adrian Shirk shares some of the stories on a visit to The Exchange.
