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.
