Anabaptist World call for submissions: God of our mothers: freeing faith from patriarchy

Deadline: March 25. Length: 600 to 1,200 words. Photos or other art are welcome.

Christian institutions, like the dominant culture, have historically been patriarchies — systems dominated by men. While many churches remain patriarchal, many Anabaptists are working to distribute power more equally between women and men.

How has your church or institution raised women’s status and embraced women’s leadership?

What is your personal experience with gender equality or inequality?

Who set an example of confronting patriarchy that inspired you, and what have you done to carry this on?
