Women comprise at least half of the church and the world, yet they experience a disproportionate amount of sexual and domestic violence compared to men. Such gender-based violence is not only a women’s issue; it is a human rights issue with deep spiritual, theological, and moral implications. With a spirit of collaboration and empowerment, this conversation illuminates how men and women—as image bearers—can both work together for gender justice and wholeness.
Speakers: Rev. Amy Gopp, We Will Speak Out U.S.; Jimmie Briggs, LOVE (Leave Out Violence)-New York; Joe Ehrmann, Coach for America; Carolyn Custis James, Whitby Forum; L.Y. Marlow, Saving Promise
