As the title of this blog suggests, we are ladies with multiple layers. We are scholars who love strappy heels, vintage dresses, and cute purses. We are also scholars who take an academic interest in women–in their history and in their place in the world today. This virtual forum is a place for us discuss the things, silly and serious, that are on our minds. It will likely focus on women’s religious history but may occasionally wander into other realms of inquiry. We hope you’ll join the discussion and make this a pleasant place to be.
