Dismantling Slavery, the Sex Industry, and the Subjugation of Women: An Evangelical Legacy
CBE’s president, Dr. Mimi Haddad, will discuss how the early evangelicals were quintessential social reformers and we have them to thank for abolition and suffrage. After decades of exposing the sex industry, the early evangelicals believed that their efforts, though necessary, would inevitably fail without addressing the root causes that were continually overlooked. These Christians perceived an integral relationship—an inescapable link—between viewing females as inferior and their subsequent marginalization and abuse. This lecture will consider the history of the early evangelicals and their reforming work biblically and socially.
This event will start at 6:30pm and ends at 8:00pm.
