About this event

Premiered on YouTube and then available on catch-up.

What does it mean to say that women are made in the image of God? Join leading women in the church for a conversation about race and gender: what unites us, what divides us, and where change will come from. We’ll talk about power, prophetic voices, naming injustice, what it’s like to be a Christian woman in public, why so many anti-racist and feminist voices are anti-church, the difference between apology and repentance, and how we can hold onto, and live in, hope.

Rosemarie Mallett is the Archdeacon of Croydon in the Diocese of Southwark. Before ordination she was an academic, research sociologist, specialising in international development and ethno-cultural mental health.

Chine McDonald is Head of Community Fundraising and Public Engagement at Christian Aid. Her latest book God is not a white man and other revelations (Hodder & Stoughton 2021) will be published at the end of May.

Lucy Winkett is Rector of St James’s Piccadilly, and was formerly Precentor at St Paul’s Cathedral. She writes and broadcasts regularly on religion, music and contemporary culture.

The event will be chaired by Paula Gooder, Canon Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral.

The event is free, but if you are able to make a donation to the continuing learning programme at St Paul’s Cathedral when you register for the event we would be very grateful.
