    In this episode, Eric Skwarczynski interviews author and advocate, Meghan Tschanz.

    Fresh out of college, hating her job, and searching for meaning, Meghan Tschanz left everything to join a mission trip around the globe, and quickly witnessed oppression experienced by women that she never thought possible.

    Over the next several years, she befriended women around the globe who had survived sex trafficking, female genital mutilation, and violence so extreme Meghan wondered at the woman's survival. Through listening to their stories, Meghan started to notice a pattern that pointed to systems of injustice that held women back—systems that her childhood church had taught and in which she was complicit.

    She was changed.

    Returning to the United States, Meghan became keenly aware of how the teachings and messaging surrounding women in her own upbringing were part of the problem. In the process, she began to find her voice, one that spoke out against injustice and moved her into tension with her Christian community.

    Women Rising is Meghan Tschanz's personal journey of transformation. But it's also a Christian blueprint for anyone wanting to confront injustice against women while pointing to a biblical standard for gender equality. With humility and grit, Meghan calls Christian women to amplify their voices for righteousness—and she calls the church to listen.

Love every show

I’ve turned many a friend on to this podcast. Raised in a Gothard Home. Did voice work at RZIM. I just enjoy reaching and listening and learning. Well done.

Spassed ,

Fascinating

I grew up in a conservative southern baptist church in a small Texas town. There is a lot I can relate to in the talk about the IFB and helps me realize that I am not alone. So glad this podcast was recommended to me.

Bekah T. ,

Balanced and helpful!

I have taken the time to listen to every podcast that Eric has put out. He balances the stories of survivors with helpful information and interviews. Listening to this podcast can help widen your thought process even if you don’t agree with every thing that’s discussed.
