Would a women’s church strike change men’s perception of women? Many women want full equality but aren’t prepared to fight for it. We can learn much from the women of Putney, Iceland, and the Catholic church in Germany.
Black woman, God calls you to MISSION because he dwells within you. You were created to Motivate, Inspire, Set the pace, provide Safe spaces, live and lead with Integrity, and always be Optimistic and Nurturing.
Black voices and experiences have historically been silenced or ignored. Even with issues relating to women, Black women are often neglected. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to change this and elevate their voices.
