For years I worked as a missionary with sexually exploited and oppressed women. After befriending them and hearing their stories, they taught me what no one else could have: how to take a stand.
Through witnessing the extreme oppression of other women, I finally started using my voice on behalf of others. As I spoke out against the atrocious injustices that they endured, ranging from rape to being beaten within an inch of their lives to worse, I started to notice a link. Their oppression, while more life-threatening and extreme, had the same roots as my own.⠀
Their oppression, while much more extreme, had the same roots. When it came down to it, inequality, a “less-than” view of women was what was driving the violence, the purchase, and the oppression of women.⠀⠀
The truth is you do not buy a woman unless she is an object. You do not assault her unless her consent does not matter. You do not silence her unless you believe her voice is not valuable. ⠀
Slowly, through learning to speak up to their injustice, I was able to speak out against the injustice I had endured myself. These women I met gave me my most cherished gift: a voice.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And that’s what led me to feminism. Even though the pages of the Bible scream against injustice, and Jesus was a true feminist, I didn’t see feminism’s holy power until I met these brave and incredible women around the globe.⠀
That’s why I host a podcast called Faith and Feminism, that’s why I have a book coming out in February, and honestly, that’s why I finally see my own worth and value.⠀
