A group of feminists have collaborated to write "A Woman's Bible" – a feminist-friendly translation of the Holy Bible – to counter scriptures that they say “have entrenched negative images of women.” Pat highlighted the group on Thursday’s episode of “Pat Gray Unleashed.”
The authors of "A Woman's Bible" assert that they "are tired of seeing their holy text used to subjugate women" and will use their own translation as a tool to teach Christianity in a way that does not portray women as subservient.
Christian feminist scholars assert in the book that women in the Bible appear in a negative light as servants or prostitutes who dance for a king or kneel before Jesus' feet.
Pat pointed out that while it is true that women in the Bible are found kneeling before Jesus to kiss his feet, this was not a negative portrayal of women but rather an act of humility.
