About the Women’s Center at LPTS
- The Women’s Center at LPTS is a space for and program of mission, the goal of which is the envisioning and construction of gendered structures and practices that do justice to the full humanity of all people. We recognize sexual difference as an original and integral constituent of that full humanity (see Genesis 1:27).
Where people have made sexual difference the justification for domination and violence, wrong has been done, and we believe we are called to speak and to act against it.
Where people have worked within a context of sexual difference to enrich our human life together, we believe we are called to celebrate.

About the Women’s Center Student Coordinator
- Amy Hartsough, who will be a first-year M.Div. student at LPTS in Fall, 2011, will be the Women’s Center Student Coordinator beginning in September, 2011. The position of Student Coordinator is integral to the operation of the Women’s Center. The Student Coordinator works closely with the Director to plan, publicize, interpret and implement the programs of the Women’s Center. The Women’s Center is happy and fortunate to have Amy fill this position, as she comes to us with experience as a freelance writer, and also the Student Events Coordinator at the Women’s Center of the University of Louisville. It was in organizing a set of activities focused on young adult women’s spiritual lives that Amy first embarked on the journey that has led her to seminary. We look forward to being part of that journey during the coming year.
