To mark International Women's Day on the 8th March, this special talk will delve into the lives of some of the women of the Old Testament. Join Christie Gilfeather as she explores the lives and legacies of these women, emphasising their role as active agents and powerful changemakers within Biblical narratives. 

For too long, women have existed on the periphery of Biblical narratives. Prevented from taking centre stage, the lives of these female figures have either been overlooked or forgotten. In this talk on Monday 7th March, 7.30-9pm, the stories of these women will be highlighted and discussed, with special emphasis placed on the ways they demonstrate power and influence. The talk will focus in part on some of the lesser known women of the Hebrew Bible, aiming to honour their stories and voices which have for so long been silent.

This talk will be held online via Zoom. If you'd like to attend the event but are not free to join us live online, please do buy a ticket and you'll receive a link to the recording the following day.
