Mimi Haddad: Leading Christians for Biblical Equality
"A true ally allows the talent and exquisite giftedness of the person you’re allying to go forward as you lose the spotlight and allow it to shine on her." — Dr. Mimi Haddad
President and CEO Mimi Haddad talks with us about her leadership of Christians for Biblical Equality and the worldwide work to liberate women and men from Christian patriarchy.
What would it be like to live in a world where biblical and social barriers to women’s equality don’t exist? Our guest today, Mimi Haddad, has spent decades working to educate, advocate, and liberate women and men from Christian patriarchy through her leadership with Christians for Biblical Equality. CBE is an international organization that has challenged biblical and patriarchal social barriers for over 30 years. My colleague Karen Guzman sits down with Mimi to talk about some of the challenges that women face in the university world and ways to serve as leaders and allies. I loved hearing Mimi talk about the positive impact on societies around the world when women take leadership roles, and I really appreciated Mimi’s perception of the Holy Spirit’s role in this work of raising up women. I thought this conversation was just a delight and I think you will too.
So jump right in! We're so glad you're here.
