The Holy Women Icons Project was founded by Rev. Dr. Angela Yarber and is administered by Dr. Elizabeth Lee. Both of us have academic backgrounds considering The Big Questions -- you know: What’s the meaning of life? and How do we achieve justice and human flourishing? -- AND we do that work in an integrated way, through spiritual practice, embodiment exercises, and ritual. All of our work as queer women and leaders is informed by our intersectional feminist beliefs and our eco-feminist commitments.
Hi! I’m Angela. I have a Ph.D. in Art and Religion; am a multi-media artist (painting, writing, dance); and am the author of seven books that address the intersections among gender/sexuality, religion/spirituality, and the arts. As an ordained, queer clergywoman, I served local churches for fourteen years and taught graduate and undergraduate students since 2006.
