by The Editors | January 2014

Learn more about the Sojourners Women and Girls (SWAG) work.

For far too long, women have been treated as second-class citizens—even in the church. In “Breaking the Habits of Machismo” (Sojourners, January 2014), Michelle A. Gonzalez explains why we need a new theology that fully recognizes women as made in the image of God.

For 42 years, Sojourners has been lifting up women’s voices. Watch this video to learn more about our work to promote women as equal members of society. Join us in the continued fight to advocate for the rightful role of women in the church and the world.

Sojourners relies on the support of readers like you to sustain our message and ministry.
