ethics@edenbridgetown.com and we'll post it up on the board.


Sexism

Ridiculous Quotes from history

"The souls of women are so small that some believe they have none at all"
Samuel Butler (1612-1680)

"Women should remain at home, sit still, keep house and bear children"
Martin Luther (1483-1546)

"I permit no women to teach or have authority over men, she is to keep silent"
1 Timothy 2:12

Sexism is treating people differently because of the gender which they were born. We have no control over the gender we are. For much of history men have held positions of power and for the last 3,000 years or so people have lived in social structures controlled by male attitudes and values.

Historical and religious writings over the last 2,000 years illustrate the way that societies have treated women.


Saving Womens Lives
Saving Womens Lives

Globally, every year more than 510,000 women die from complications of pregnancy or childbirth, 2.2 million women become infected with HIV and 2 million girls are bought and sold as sex slaves. Overall, 130 million women have undergone female genital mutilation, and up to 60 million female children are missing. Saving women's lives is a moral imperative.
