Elisabeth Schussler Fiorenza situates herself as a catholic wo/man within the broader biblical tradition of Western Christianity. She acknowledges her critical feminist theology of liberation is "indebted to historical-critical, critical-political and liberation theological analyses." In an effort to transform her religious tradition, Schüssler Fiorenza seeks to systematically analyse and radically critique the various socio-economic and theo-political structures that oppress and disenfranchise wo/men and other non-persons. She maintains integrating wo/men into the existing frameworks of the academy and the church is futile and nothing short of the transformation of all academic disciplines and religious practices of Western culture is necessary.
