The Iconocast

In this episode, co-hosts Joanna, Mark, and Sarah discuss gender, sexism, and community. For most of its history, the church has NOT been a safe place for women to develop as whole and healthy people. As a result, men also struggle to know what it means to be healthy males.

The conversation explores:
The way women and men both lose out in a sexist society.
The importance of community in finding a better way to think about gender.
The fact that “Rocky 3″ is, perhaps, the most “manly” movie ever made.
Sexism in film.
And much, much, more.
