Justice, Poverty, Oppression, Women

Around the world today, women and girls bear a disproportionate amount of the consequences of war, violence, poverty, trafficking, and oppression of every kind. In his life and ministry, Jesus consistently moved toward the oppressed and marginalized, and, very often, women. How can people of faith today follow Christ's example and act in love against the oppression of women and girls in our world? Hear from Majority World Christians as they share their perspectives and the ways that God has spoken into their lives around the issues of justice, poverty, oppression, and women. We pray that their wisdom will inform and encourage us to live more courageously, justly, and creatively in our context.
