Intercontinental Women's
Conference
(Oaxtepec Mexico, 1-6, 1986)An intercontinental conference of women theologians from the Third World was held in Oaxtepec, Mexico, December 1-6, 1986. The theme of the conference was "Doing Theology from Third World Women's Perspective." The conference was sponsored by the Ecumenical Association of Third World Theologians (EATWOT) as part of its commitment to total liberation and the achievement of full humanity for all, women and men alike.Planned to operate in three stages, the women's project sought:
1. To broaden our understanding of women's situation in our respective socioeconomic, political, and religio-cultural Tealities.
2. To discover the vital aspects of women's experience of God in emerging spiritualities.
3. To reread the Bible from Third World women's perspective in the light of total liberation.
4. To articulate faith reflections on women's realities, struggles, and spirituality.
5. To deepen our commitment and solidarity work toward full humanity for all.

The first two phases of the study took place on the national and continental levels. The present meeting provided a forum of exchange among the women on their findings of the study in their respective continents. TWenty-six delegates from seventeen countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America took part in the conference.
