Despite the seemingly overwhelming odds facing women, it is encouraging to see how so many are truly pushing back from the brink. It is time to make public and personal commitments to support our mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters, who are disproportionately bearing the burdens of poverty.
About Sojourners Women & Girls
Women are made God’s image and likeness (Genesis 1:27). When Christians embrace this as a core tenet of faith, we can model the human family as God created it to be. All Christians — regardless of gender — are called by God to exercise their gifts with equal authority and equal responsibility. As it says in the early church’s baptismal covenant, “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:8).
Since the 1970s, Sojourners has been committed to resisting sexism in all its forms, while affirming the integrity and equality of women and men in the church and in the larger world. Sojourners magazine was one of the first evangelical publications to lift up feminism, and today a new generation is looking to us as a “go-to” place for perspectives on gender justice and women’s voices in faith communities.
Through Sojourners’ expanded multimedia platforms and growing network of partnerships, we are lifting up diverse women’s voices who are passionate about justice and motivated by their faith. Through biblical education, creative advocacy, and bridge building, we champion policies at home and abroad that fortify women’s health and dignity through eliminating gender discrimination and abuse, supporting pay equity, and increase economic empowerment.
