Honoring Women's History Month

Christian Science Monitor Logo

From The Christian Science Monitor's Healing Perspective

A deeper definition of womanhood

During Women’s History Month, gender equality is top of mind. Many are working to build a world where anyone can fulfill their full potential. In this pursuit, it’s helpful to consider what constitutes a woman’s abilities. We may call out stereotypically feminine qualities, perhaps even certain jobs or roles that women have traditionally filled. But there’s a deeper definition of identity that Christian Science brings to light, one in which every woman (and man and child) is whole, capable, safe, and entirely spiritual.


It may look as if there are still too many challenges to overcome for true womanhood to shine through. But these articles from the archives of The Christian Science Publishing Society share stories of how learning more of our God-given spiritual heritage makes the path forward less encumbered, right here and right now.
