Building the civilization of love through education and research.

“In transforming culture so that it supports life, women occupy a place, in thought and action, which is unique and decisive. It depends on them to promote a "new feminism" which rejects the temptation of imitating models of "male domination", in order to acknowledge and affirm the true genius of women in every aspect of the life of society, and overcome all discrimination, violence and exploitation.” Pope St. John Paul II, The Gospel of Life (Evangelium Vitae), 99

The Siena Symposium for Women, Family, and Culture is an interdisciplinary faculty group, founded at the University of St. Thomas in 2003 by professors of law, business, philosophy, theology and others interested in developing the new feminism so necessary for building the civilization of love in accord with the vision of St. John Paul II.
