Kate Schell pens a lovely and though-provoking post about Bathsheba, modesty, and the myth that the actions of women are always the cause of sexual violence.
“Today, I grieve for Bathsheba. I grieve for this woman coerced and bereaved. I grieve for this woman who mourned, her clothing torn and her life upended. I grieve for this woman who has been reduced to adulteress, to a naked body in the wrong spot at the wrong time.”
