Global Impact: Public Health and Women’s Equality in the Church

by Mimi Haddad, Kim Dickson | November 05, 2021

This week on the Global Impact thread, Mimi interviews her co-host Kim Dickson,a public health worker and egalitarian activist. They discuss Kim’s experiences as a Christian public health worker and specifically her time serving in India, exploring the ways the good news of Jesus for women changed communities. In this episode you’ll hear many stories, including one about four young women who had believed God created them to be “feebleminded,” and through Bible study and conversation, learned that instead God created them to be capable, strong daughters of God, created in God’s image.

Within the interview, Kim and Mimi reference Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn.
