The longstanding and systemic mistreatment, underpayment and sexual harassment of women and members of the LGBTQ2S+ community has been firmly in the public spotlight this past year thanks to movements such as #MeToo and Time’s Up. But how have Christian communities wrestled with these issues? Have there been gains in equality, empowerment and safety in Christian settings? Have Christians been advocates for change in wider society? Three leading women reformers reflect on the implications of biblical teachings and tradition in the struggle for justice in church and society. The lecture is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
