On May 24, Professor Mary Stanford gave a talk entitled “Friendship, Femininity & Fickleness” to the women of the Christendom community.

She summarizes the essence of femininity by discussing the “3 Cs”—care, conversation, and community. Professor Stanford explains how women should use their natural God-endowed gifts as strengths, rather than allow them to become weaknesses.

Professor Stanford received her Master of Theological Studies degree from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Washington, DC.  A married homeschooling mother of six children, Mary occasionally moonlights as an adjunct instructor for the Theology Department of Christendom College, and has spoken in dioceses around the country on the topics of marriage, femininity, contraception, and Christian anthropology.
