We’re living at time where conversations about gender are everywhere. The subjugation of women in the world and in the Church is being called out. The harmful power of toxic masculinity is being confronted. And the visibility of transgender and nonbinary people is increasing. Alongside all of this, we’re seeing new clashes in matters of public policy. This teaching is an exploration of these conversations, and the questions they raise, within a theological frame.
