Mimi Haddad :: How can I, as an individual, empower women?

  • “There’s absolutely no movement of justice that happens without the community being part of it,” says Dr. Mimi Haddad, President of Christians for Biblical Equality, “all of us need each other.” Creating opportunities for women in one’s personal sphere is one of the most powerful ways for an individual to help promote an environment of advocacy for women. For instance, giving up a spot on an all-male panel to a woman, or demanding that a woman be invited to speak at a conference if no women have been invited are both examples of effective ways for a community to come together to begin solving the problem of gender inequality.
