What is a woman’s place? That is the question spurring many a debate among women and men, inside and outside the church. And the answers aren’t easy to come by, because women face unique circumstances, opportunities, and responsibilities that refuse to adhere to a hard-and-fast rule. Tackling this complex issue is Katelyn Beaty, author of A Woman’s Place: A Christian Vision for your Calling in the Office, the Home and the World. Beaty is managing editor at Christianity Today magazine and cofounder of Her.meneutics, which have given her keen insight into the cultural debate about women and the role work plays in our lives. In this two-part episode of Persuasion, Erin Straza and Hannah Anderson host Katelyn Beaty to discuss her book and what prompted her to write it. The conversation covers everything from the true definition of work to the proper way men and women are called to work together for the common good. And be sure to catch part two of the conversation, when we move into specific difficulties women face work is in its proper place.
