They have had centuries to do it, they could do it any time and start writing to build a library just like other religions, have people join and convert

Religious texts are open to interpretation. For centuries men have been interpreting Christianity to their advantage. A feminist perspective would be looking at the text and interpreting it to a female's advantage, or at least to put her on equal footing to men.

what the hell is a feminist approach to theology?
Feminists see most religion as very man-centered and misogynistic. Something I agree with incidentally. So I would imagine this will be a mainstay of the course itself(not saying it will be the totality). The problem with it is going to be defining feminism as it relates to the course. It could be any where from mild to wild, depending on the authors and the instructor.
