Could it be that the complementarian notion of “biblical womanhood” (especially the claim that women’s distinct personhood makes no room for women as teachers and leaders of men) is a recent, Western perspective? Read more
When the church argues for complementarianism (men and women have specific roles that “complement” each other), this empowers men to believe they have a distorted right to treat women in a lesser role. Read more
With the publication of the Nashville Statement in 2017, the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood saught to set out *the* Christian stance on human identity, transgenderism, homosexuality, and other related topics.

Contemporaneous LXX G has corresponding distigmai.   Read more
