Women As Fully Human: How Christian Faith Overcomes Patriarchy: Mimi Haddad by CBE International

The most prominent indicator of whether a female will be sold to a brothel, killed as a fetus, abused in her marriage or family, or denied a place of decision making in her community or church is determined not by her gender, but on the value we ascribe to gender. The single indicator for gender justice in a community begins with an idea that theologians call ontology, that is the value we ascribe to individuals at the level of being. This lecture explores the historical devaluation of females and how Christian faith and Scripture offer a decisive challenge to gender prejudice and injustice.

Barring women from using their God-given talents is an injustice that diminishes the gospel and its impact in the world. CBE International works to inspire and mobilize Christians with the Bible’s call for women and men to co-lead and co-serve as equals.
