On the Red Carpet: Rachel Held Evans (from Red Letter Christians)
In this interview by Margot Starbuck for Red Letter Christians, blogger and author Rachel Held Evans was asked whether she is ever perceived as an “angry feminist” because she speaks out for gender equality. “I think any time you challenge ingrained power structures or various forms of religious legalism, you can expect to be labeled as ‘angry’ or ‘divisive,’” she replied. “And sometimes I am angry; I think there are things in this world worth getting angry about.” She said she believes “patriarchy is a result of sin, and that followers of Jesus are to be champions of equality.” Rachel Held Evans is the author of A Year of Biblical Womanhood, reviewed on this website by Alena Amato Ruggerio.
