When Women are Empowered, Entire Communities are Transformed

Jenny Yang speaks on women around the world, the inequalities and injustices endured, such as 104 economies with laws preventing women from working in specific jobs, 59 economies with no laws on sexual harassment in the workplace, and 18 economies where husbands can legally prevent their wives from working. Yet there is consistent proof that when women are empowered, entire communities are transformed. The church must take the lead in making room for the marginalized and oppressed in order to see the miracle of societal transformation.

From the Lausanne Global Workplace Forum held in Manila, Philippines, 25-29 June 2019.
