The misrepresentation of God
The misrepresentation of God as strictly male has wounded women in every area of their lives.
Women are raped, abused, molested, trafficked and prostituted because the desires of men (AKA God) are prioritized over the emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual needs of women and girls. The misrepresentation of God as male ensures that women and girls will always be considered last.
The images of God as “Father” and "Savior" are the foundations that patriarchy and misogyny are built upon.
