"This is an attempt to under-
stand why we are where we are,
and where we can get to. We are
discussing the causes of women's
oppression, to see how deeply they-
're rooted," Shore said yesterday.
"These images and symbols under-
lie the basic assumptions and
structures of the world's ways of
viewing woman.'"
The conference, attended by ov-
er 120 people, included several
workshops, speeches and discus-
sion groups.

"Woman is defined as a rela-
tive being who exists only in re-
lation to, the male," said Reuther.
"She is seen as a body to be used
for procreation."
Reuther called for a "radical
reconstruction" o f theological
thought to change these images.
Penelope Washbourn, an assist-
ant professor of religious affairs
at Wooster College, criticized the
role women play in traditional
Christian religion.
