Whether to lean in or opt out, enter the workforce or work in the home, win the bread or care for the kids—or even to have kids or not—American women are under immense pressure. In a culture that places unprecedented, unrelenting, and unrealistic expectations on women, and then labels them into various “camps,” how can women discern the lives God intends for them?
In this course, Kate Harris, Executive Director of the Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture and author of Wonder Women: Navigating the Challenges of Career, Motherhood and Identity, addresses three unique challenges facing women—encampment, embodiment, and expectation—and then draws on the resources of Christian faith to open up vistas from which women can fulfill their vocations and recover their true identities.
