Her Fists Clenched

Many of my woman clergy colleagues have stories about church members commenting on their appearance, or work/family balance, or even expressed desire to be in a relationship. Many women in other professions have their own stories as well.

The Supreme Court appears set to overturn a major ruling that grants women private autonomy over their own bodies.

The Southern Baptist Convention just released a major report regarding sexual abuse by male clergy against women.

It’s a wonder any woman trusts any man at any time, ever.

Some may want to respond to this with #NotAllMen, but there’s so much overwhelming anecdotal evidence to the contrary that the burden is on men to show better, all the time.

And it will take a long time before women may feel comfortable enough to unclench their fists.
