Women's Rights

Guests: Courtney Reissig and Candice Watters

[20:15] - 

Women know they're equal to men in God's eyes, so does this make them feminists? In light of this, shouldn't Christian women be at the forefront of the fight against unfair wages, gender harassment, sex trafficking and other anti-female ills? Where does God's plan collide with the world's agenda? Boundless contributor Courtney Reissig, author of this week's article, "Single Women Are Not on the Womanhood Waiting List," and The Accidental Feminist, joins Lisa Anderson and Candice Watters (who recently answered the question "Should I call myself a feminist?") for a discussion of feminism and faith.

How do you avoid both paralysis and foolishness in making important decisions? Psychiatrist Karl Benzio is an expert in decision-making indicators and strategies, and uses his knowledge and experience in this interview to demystify our ability to choose.
