The work of many first- and second-century Christian women have been written out of records. Here are some more recent Christian influents whose work for the Christian church have been minimized:
Leymah Gbowee: Liberian peace and women’s rights activist, Gbowee organized interfaith demonstrations and sex boycotts to bring civil peace. Though awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, her theological contributions have been largely unrecognized by Western Christianity. – leymahgbowee.com
Cecile Richards: President of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Richards has been an outspoken women’s reproductive rights activist, though her United Methodist roots and theological ties have been minimized in the pro-life/pro-choice dialogue. – plannedparenthood.org, theird.org
You: Quite likely. Christian history has largely been focused on male contributions. How long will this bias continue?
