If you watched the presidential debate this evening, or if you were on Facebook or Twitter, you probably heard about Mitt Romney’s ‘binders full of women’ remark. (Don’t worry, this has nothing to do with Mitt Romney.)
Several friends and I had the idea to use this now-viral phrase to acknowledge the ways that women writers and/or scholars have contributed to how we think, live, pastor, do theology, etc. We’re asking folks to find a way to show some of the women that have formed you intellectually and to create your own binder/box/shelf/other container.
As one of my co-conspirators said, let’s show the world what awesome women do. And if you’re wondering why this matters, take a look at this alarming article on gendered responses to women writing about religion.
