Shocking news from Sudan last week as Meriam Ibrahim – a woman who is eight months pregnant – was sentenced to death, for converting to Christianity. However, as President Jimmy Carter has recently noted, this is but one case of religion conflicting with women’s rights. Welton will discuss this ruling and similar concerns about the role that religion plays in the subjugation of women around the world with self-proclaimed “femmevangelical” Rev. Jennifer Crumpton. The Vice President of Strategic Partnerships for the International Center for Religion & Diplomacy, and a Pastoral Associate of Park Avenue Christian Church in New York City, Rev. Crumpton brings a unique perspective to share on the case in Sudan, President Jimmy Carter’s recent comments about women in Christianity, and the intersection of religion and gender around the world.
