Ruth was an undocumented migrant worker at risk of sexual violence.
Hannah struggled with depression over her infertility.
Mary Magdalene witnessed the execution of her friend.
And yet, each of these biblical women discovered powerful ways to resist by claiming the power of their innate sacred worth.
Women Rise Up: Sacred Stories of Resistance for Today’s Revolution invites us all to take a closer look at women’s stories in our sacred texts that are often left out of sermons and bible studies. What can we learn from these foremothers of our faith that will help guide us in our collective struggle for gender justice today?
This book is a catalyst for sacred conversations that will spark your imagination for a more just, compassionate world for all.
