New Blog - Daughters of Junia

I hope you'll visit this new blog, Daughters of Junia. The author speaks directly to women who have, through the oppression of patriarchal teachings and the male-centric handling of biblical passages throughout Christianity, been stripped of their rightful identity in one way or another.

The author writes...

I chose Junia to be this blog's namesake because I feel that, much like what happened to her, women in the patriarchal movement are overlooked. Their own names are changed and covered over by the names of their fathers, brothers, and husbands who have the supposed biblical mandate to lead. They have never heard a sermon about Junia, the female apostle, or Phoebe, the female bishop. They have never been told that to be a woman is not to be somehow less; instead they have internalized the opposite. And, unlike Junia, they have never had the wrongs done to them righted. They have never recovered their true names.

Here's to hoping you all will discover exactly who God intends you to be in Christ.


  1. Thanks for the link.

    (I tried to comment there and wish Hypatia luck, but her blog software for some reason did not accept my comment. Do others have that problem too?)

  2. Thank you so much for the recommendation. :)

  3. Thanks for the new link. It just blows my mind away that more and more people are stepping-up and speaking their minds in regards to this topic regarding Patriarchy.
