Bible and feminism explored
What do the Bible and feminism have to do with each other?
Quite a lot, say Priscilla Pope Levison and John R. Levison from Seattle Pacific University.
The Levisons are the keynote speakers for the Engendered Lives symposium presented on March 31 by Trinity Western University’s Gender Studies Institute.
Three waves of feminism, from the late 19th century to the present, have considered the Bible to be a critical text both for and against women’s liberation. The Levisons, a theologian and a biblical scholar, will briefly explore each wave’s biblical interpretation.
The keynote address, The Bible and Feminism, begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by discussion. Prior to the keynote address, from 4 p.m. to 6:45 p.m., the Gender Studies institute will host a graduate student panel featuring selected research presentations.
Both events will be held in the Northwest Auditorium at TWU and are free and open to the public.
