For Such A Time As This: Religious Leadership and Sexualized Violence

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 18th 2018, 12:45pm to 2:00pm

At a time in history when the system of patriarchy and the form it take in sexualized violence is surfacing in new ways, the Women’s Studies in Religion program at the Graduate Theological Union offers space for religious scholars and practitioners to ask, “What does religious leadership look like for such a time as this?”  

From clergy sexual abuse scandals to the Supreme Court confirmation hearings, we are again confronted by the persistence of misogyny.  Join religious leaders and scholars as we explore the tools we have from our various disciplines and practices that empower us to understand, interpret and navigate our own callings in these #metoo, #churchtoo,  #timesup, #ibelieveher times.
