Rebekah Lyons: Third Wave Feminism
By GospelVideo - Q Ideas On August 11, 2014
Feminism: it's a word we use, but don't often understand. In this clip from her talk at Q Nashville, Rebekah Lyons explores the history of modern feminism and its incarnations and asks if the church might be able to redeem this third wave of feminism. When men and women work together with one another in the church, as sons and daughters of God, then we are free to live the gospel and walk in newness of life together.
Rebekah Lyons is the author of Freefall to Fly: A Breathtaking Journey Toward a Life of Meaning. She is a mother of three, wife of one and dog walker of two living in New York City. She's an old soul with a contemporary, honest voice who puts a new face on the struggles women face as they seek to live a life of meaning. Through emotive writing and speaking, Rebekah reveals her own battles to overcome anxiety, depression, and consumer impulses challenging women to discover and boldly pursue the calling God has for them. As a self-confessed mess, Rebekah wears her heart on her sleeve, a benefit to friends and readers alike.
