SojoAction: Women and Girls
Since the 1970s, Sojourners has been committed to resisting sexism and misogyny by advocating for a world where women and men are given equal respect and opportunity in the church and beyond. To help that vision become a reality, the Women and Girls Campaign works to address gender-based violence from a faith-based perspective and seeks to close the gender gap in church leadership through storytelling, scriptural analysis, and resources.
The Women and Girls Campaign advocates for trauma-informed and women-empowering legislation, particularly legislation against domestic and sexual violence. We also encourage seminaries to include domestic and sexual violence training, so church leaders can be equipped to offer pastoral care to survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
“Have you thought about it, God? About my growing, I mean. I’ve got a bra now.”
Let’s transform Mother’s Day into an imperative to ensure that all moms receive the care, support, and permanent protections they need and deserve.
From changing liturgies to skipping entirely, many women are calling churches to acknowledge the pain that some feel during Sunday celebrations.
