It is with deep sadness that I note the death of Dr Catherine Clark Kroeger on Feb 14th, 2011. Here is an obit. She was a scholar who spoke passionately on the topic of biblical equality of men and women.
A world-renowned speaker, Cathie traveled the globe, opposing violence and the abuse of women, while also advancing the biblical basis for the shared leadership and authority of males and females. Standing in the legacy of great evangelical leaders like Dr. Katharine Bushnell (1856-1946), Cathie offered an indomitable challenge to the hegemony of male authority which, when coupled with female submission, too often leads to abuse. Like Bushnell, Cathie worked to oppose abuse and to teach the biblical basis for the equal value, dignity, and worth of humans, as male and female.
