Sex and Intimate Justice: Exploring Narratives of Patriarchy, Female Sexuality, and Messages in the Church

Fri 1 PM | Convo Hall 1
Sat 3 PM | Convo Hall 1

Dr. Emily Stone

There is a hidden and not so hidden curriculum throughout spiritual formation in the church, particularly the Evangelical church, that teaches both males and females about power, gender, and expectations for sex. What are some of these messages? How are they the same and different from societal messages? How do these lessons in power, gender, and sex influence males, females, and relationships over time? Dr. Stone will engage participants in a dialogue on this subject as well as make room for them to share their insight, examples, and stories.
