Hello! I'm Ashley.

I'm passionate about loving Jesus and partnering with my husband in bring the flavor of His kingdom to the world. I seek to do this through promoting truth-seeking expeditions, advocating gender equality, educating the Church on abuse, and aiding the rescue of men, women and children from spiritual, emotional and physical poverty.

Interview with Margaret Mowczko

Interview with Margaret Mowczko

Welcome back to Christian Feminism Weekly with Ashley and Charlie!

Today, we have a special guest on the show, scholar, blogger, and egalitarian Margaret Mowczko! This woman is doing amazing work advancing gender equality through her in-depth scholarship on New Testament history.

"It's really important to look at the context of Ephesians 5 to work out what is actually being said... Pretty much all of Ephesians 5 is talking about love and how to live as Spirit-filled people. And being a leader, being someone in authority just doesn't come into it... I think the word "head" is used as being part of a head-body metaphor... because unity is what Paul is really hoping for." -Marg Mowczko
