Week 47: Gender-Based Violence Online Gathering

Week 47: Gender-Based Violence Online Gathering

You can find the 2021 gathering here.

On November 22 we addressed gender-based violence in Palestine and in Israel’s occupation of Palestine. We were joined by Dr. Dorothy Jean Weaver, the retired professor of New Testament at Eastern Mennonite Seminary. She spoke on “Women of Empire within Matthew’s Narrative.” We then discussed how these biblical stories and lessons can inform our activism around the world and for Palestine.
