Christian Conferences Should Reflect the Body of Christ
Last week, a controversy erupted over Twitter when it came
to light that a prominent evangelical conference with 110 speakers only had 4
women on stage.
Journalist Jonathan Merritt, did a quick informal study and
discovered that out of 34 prominent evangelical conferences, only 19% of
speakers were women.
This is a problem – and we can do something about it. Add your voice in support of Jim Wallis and Lisa Sharon Harper's call to encourage diversity at Christian conferences.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Sojourners.
I agree with Jim Wallis and Lisa Sharon Harper that Christian conferences should reflect the full body of Christ. Currently, only 19% of speakers at major Christian conferences are female.This status quo is unacceptable and I stand with leaders working to change it.
