I really like the diversity of this collection. Kudos to the editors who did a fantastic job at making sure this collection encompassed the varied aspects of feminism. Feminist voices are well-represented by all the admirable contributors to this book. I don’t agree with everything, but I admire the ideas, and the words and actions that go with it.
As a takeaway from reading this book, I now have greater respect for the church I go to. In a way, we are a feminist church. We have leaders and preachers who are women. At some point, we might have made some eyebrows raise by having women preach on a Sunday service pulpit. We are taught to submit to husbands and authority, but we are also taught to be warrior women. We are taught to be strong and are encouraged to speak, share, dream big, and when necessary, fight for our ideas. And for that, I admire our church’s mission, vision, principle, heart, and leadership even more.
Some important terms that stood out to me from this book are the following:
Equality. Gender. Representation. Misogyny. Ambition. Strong. Platform. Voice
