In this talk Catherine Kroeger takes up the issue of self-identity and sexual identity for women. From discussing the plight of women living in the world of HIV and AIDS in Zambia, to a brief tour of the way others have understood the identity of women, Kroger is able to give context to many of the struggles of identity women face today. Charting a path from the Hebrew Scriptures where women were seen as a precious gift, to Christ’s death on the cross, Kroeger points a way forward for women to a whole, healthy, and godly self-understanding.
