Writing a post for International Women’s Day on the Emerging Voices blog on Patheos, Leland Lee reminisces about her involvement in the Women’s Movement, dating from 1965 when she was a high school junior!
In the post Lee expresses a Christian feminist view of Jesus with these words:
“I think of Jesus as a feminist, holding women in the same regard as men, in a time when society did not share his sentiments. In addition to Jesus’ preferential option for the poor, I also think he had a preferential option for women, revealing himself first, after his resurrection, to women. Perhaps Jesus meant to honor the women by showing himself to them first, or maybe Jesus trusted the women to believe the miracle of his resurrection.”
Read her informative post “#MakeItHappen – Gender Equity for Women and Girls,” and enjoy exploring the many links she includes.
