Gender Normalization: I Reject the Gender Status Quo (Part 2 of 2)

In my last blog post, I reflected on gender normalization, accepting the status quo without addressing its underlying inequality and injustices.  I reflected on women’s roles in society where we are expected to accept certain aspects of our culture because they are part of our tradition, or our past.  I also discussed family inheritance and its inherent discrimination against daughters.  In this post I wish to reflect on women in politics and religion, particularly Christianity as that is the context I know and live in.
