“For many cultures, including Christian culture…too often…will lean upon select passages of scripture, and interpret them very poorly, as a rationale to support male rule, and that is what we call Christian patriarchy.”
This podcast episode features Mimi Haddad, who leads a workshop at the 2014 VJN Conference: Kingdom Justice, Vineyard Values. She raises the question: where are the 200 million missing girls and women on our planet? And why are they missing most in the Global South, where there fewer cultural, religious, political, and social protections for women and girls? Mimi Haddad guides us to an understanding of gender equality through a biblical worldview.
