Ezer Rising serves as a platform for writers and members of our community to share their personal stories and understanding of theology as it relates to egalitarianism and gender equality. We write on various issues including equality in marriage, the abuse of women, women in leadership positions in the Church, pop culture’s view, and treatment of women, and more.
