Among Women 235: Women Speak for Themselves, with Helen Alvaré

June 22, 2018

This week’s episode:

“Blessed are They”: St. Prisca 

“Among Women” Guest: Helen Alvaré

This is the episode that almost wasn’t! After a tech failure and a long-awaited repair to the recording, I dive into a discussion with Helen Alvaré, law professor from George Mason University, and founder of Women Speak for Themselves and Reconnect Media. We enjoy a very engaging conversation on a variety of subjects including improving our public discourse on pro-life issues and so much more: #MeToo, love, sex, marriage, contraception, and making a positive impact on the culture. Plus, in this episode we look at the life of St. Prisca, a married woman from the first century church, and her witness and service to St. Paul and others.

Links for this episode:

Scripture quotes for St. Prisca: Acts 18: 1-3, Romans 16:3, and 1 Corinthians 16:19.
