Civitas Press is pleased to announce that we are partnering with Pam Hogeweide for the release of her first book, Unladylike (working title). Unladylike is about confronting what she calls “a polite oppression” of women in the modern-day church. Pam’s writing reaches past the polite veil of quiet disagreement of gender equality by insisting that it’s not an issue of theology, but an issue of justice.Written with the storytelling tone of memoir combined with a journalistic commitment to inform, Unladylike will provide readers a compelling narrative that will affirm or challenge their beliefs about women and the world of church.
Pam states, “For too long I have sat quietly and diplomatically about the unequal treatment of women in church. Somewhere along the way, I started believing that Jesus came to liberate us all from every kind of oppression, including Christianized sexism. Breaking rank with traditional beliefs about women hasn’t been easy for me, yet I am convinced that men and women are meant to coexist in a spirit of mutuality. It might seem unladylike, but aren’t all revolutions?”
Unladylike is scheduled for release on 11.11.11. You can pre-order her book now.
