The latest issue of Anabaptist Witness highlights the experiences of women in Anabaptist circles — particularly as they have engaged in mission. Co-editor Jamie Ross shares her own reflections as she introduces the issue:
“As a white woman, I have recently felt this tension between marginalization and power. Power is complicated. While white heterosexual women in the United States have believed that all of our gender were bound together in sisterhood, some of us have recently discovered what our marginalized sisters have known all along: we continue to fail each other.”
Ross hopes that this issue would serve to continue the many complex conversations about women in mission.
In this issue, you will find stories of courageous individuals determined to share the gospel. Their legacies and the challenges they put forth provide us with much to draw on as we consider gender in our changing contexts and what it means to bear the good news.
