I love these biblical role models for International Women’s Day 2018

On International Women’s Day, one of our TAFES associates shared the images below, a collection of biblical women in the same vein as the encouragements to 2018 women. Once again, I’m unsure on the source.

Tanzanians love lists of things, a manifestation, I suspect, of their desire for global rather than essentialist reasoning (that is, they prefer to be exhaustive and big picture, rather than summarise or boil things down.) These images are neither giving ‘types’ (so you can choose to be one but not the other), nor saying all of these are required of every woman, nor harmonising them all into one ideal woman. It’s a list of women, and lessons from each.
