Abstract: L'Autre Parole is the name of both a group and its publication. The group, L'Autre Parole, existing since 1976, consists of Christian feminists in Quebec. Presently, two such groups exist in Montreal, one in Sherbrooke, and two in Rimouski, while others are in the process of being formed. L'Autre Parole has links with other Christian feminist groups in Ontario, France, Belgium, and U.S.A.
The group's objectives are: the theological implications of women in a global sense and the full participation of women in the Roman Catholic church. Sharing with other feminist and progressive groups, L'Autre Parole has supported the struggles of Sister Theresa Kane in her desire to have more women involved in the church. The group also presented a paper in Nov., 1979 at the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women in Edmonton.
L'Autre Parole produces a publication three times a year.Iits readership consists of some 600 individuals and organizations.
