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 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, scripture analysis, and resource-sharing.

As people of faith, what is our responsibility to girls and young women who suffer abuse, lash out, and wind up in prison?

But, as Jenna Barnett reminds us in this story, no one is ever beyond our compassion and "nobody is the worst thing they have ever done."
