Since the 1970s, Sojourners has been committed to resisting sexism in all its forms, while affirming the integrity and equality of women and men in the church and in the larger world. Through biblical education, creative advocacy, and bridge building, we champion policies at home and abroad that fortify women’s health and dignity through eliminating gender discrimination and abuse, increasing economic empowerment, and supporting women's leadership in the church and beyond.
Our Latest Work
Speak Out for Survivors of Domestic and Sexual Violence
Encourage your house of worship to speak out for survivors this Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Thirty-three percent of women will experience intimate partner violence in their lives, yet 95 percent of church-going women report they have never heard a specific message on abuse preached from the pulpit of their church. Read and sign on to this open letter to join the movement.
"Here I feel bound to express my pain and shame at the irreparable damage caused to children by some ministers of the Church."
Jesus has left your church when a woman is assaulted, but only men are allowed to speak publicly about it.
“Our goal is to reduce the amount of deception and untruths and unethical behaviors that exist in some facets of religion.”
One-in-12 Christians in the world today experience high to extreme persecution for their faith, according to a new report. Many of the most vulnerable are women.
I hope we stop spreading the dangerous myth that abuse and harassment doesn’t happen among Christians.
