Resist and Persist: Faith and the Fight for Equality

The RavenCast is excited to welcome Erin Wathen, author of "Resist and Persist: Faith and the Fight for Equality," as she joins Adam Ericksen for a live interview on Thursday, June 28, at 6 pm CT. Enjoy the second chapter of her book as she explains the rivalry between women for power, status, and the very embodiment of womanhood and/or feminism as the product of patriarchy. How might an understanding of mimetic theory help us all to cooperate and create community together rather than compete?

The Women’s March, Part 1: Solidarity Without Enmity

"The spirit of solidarity that infused Saturday’s marches worldwide was hopeful and invigorating. But solidarity can be channeled over and against enemies, or it can be channeled toward a vision of ever-widening inclusivity that rejects the concept of enmity altogether." Lindsey Paris-Lopez hopes that the movement birthed from the women's marches will ignite solidarity that seeks to redeem, not scapegoat.

Thank You, Dr. Hawkins

Lindsey Paris-Lopez expresses her deep gratitude to Dr. Larycia Hawkins as she leaves Wheaton College, and pledges to continue her work of embodied solidarity to make the city of Wheaton and beyond more welcoming for Muslims.
