This dialogue brings together work on Rabbinic Judaism and Roman Catholicism to introduce the economic and feminist implications of the authors’ respective chapters on genetically modified organisms and Catholic environmental ethics. The authors frame ecological thriving, technological development, and the relation between the two as feminist concerns. Further, they consider the potential and/or limits of their source traditions for feminist engagement. Their discussion affirms the importance of naming unjust power structures, while cautioning against preemptive restrictions that may inhibit promising research and therefore undermine efforts to address injustice. This dialogue illuminates both the potential for innovation and the challenges in comparative religious ethical dialogue.
