Julia Kavanaugh, an Irish Roman Catholic, was a Victorian novelist and biographer. Her book "Women of Christianity" offers the earliest survey of women’s lives in the Christian tradition. This text refutes the frequent charge of trendiness of egalitarianism, as it was written 150 years ago. It confronts male-dominated history (“great events, dazzling actions”) as pagan and transcends the “wearisome similarity” often depicted in saints’ lives. Finally, her book invites connections with contemporary feminist texts.

In this workshop, Medad will be dealing with the deep rooted lies that have been planted and nurtured in the minds of many people in the African society for many generations that have led to the dehumanization of the female nature of being.

This workshop will suggest ways to demolish these disastrous ideas and how to promote justice in the African communities.

Historians characterize evangelicals of the 1800s by their commitment to and passion for Scripture, evangelism, missions, and social action (suffrage, abolition, and women’s leadership in the church). Through their dedication to these ideals, the early evangelicals made significant contributions to missions and the emancipation of slaves, and they also offered a comprehensive biblical foundation for the gospel-service of women. This lecture will explore their leaders, their biblical scholarship, their accomplishments on the mission field, and their work as abolitionists and emancipators of women’s gospel leadership.

Was C. S. Lewis a misogynist? The answer depends on which point in his life you choose to examine. Until fairly late in life, Lewis’ view of gender relations was more influenced by his attraction to classical Greek philosophy, Pagan myth and Jungian psychology than by ‘mere’ Christianity. However, with his late acquaintance and marriage to the gifted American writer Joy Davidman, this began to change, as can be seen in his last (but least-read) works, The Discarded Image, Till We Have Faces, and A Grief Observed.
