I really enjoyed Maggie’s post on an article about a girl losing her faith in religion in order for her to accept gender equality. These types of post are very eye opening and inspiring to me. I can relate to her in the fact that through life we all faces challenges and things that push us to an edge. The only thing that helps us at that point is to trust yourself and go with it.
I think the author of this article is someone who is a good candidate for speaking for gender equality. She is effective because she has seen both sides of the situation. She was raised as a biblical literalist and struggled to find herself outside of those beliefs. Someone who might not have that experience may very well not think twice about the societal roles men and women play.
This article really made me think ad I hope to read more about the same subject.
