A Holy Alliance: Women and Men Against Gender-Based Violence

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Women comprise at least half of the church and the world, yet they experience a disproportionate amount of sexual and domestic violence compared to men. Such gender-based violence is not only a women’s issue; it is a human rights issue with deep spiritual, theological, and moral implications. With a spirit of collaboration and empowerment, this conversation illuminates how men and women—as image bearers—can both work together for gender justice and wholeness.
