Genuine equality

The Christian Science Monitor

Over the last twenty years or so, many people in the United States and in other countries have been actively working to achieve equality of opportunity for men and women and for all races. In some places it has been an uphill battle; in many, the struggle goes on. For some of us, this lack of equality isn't just an abstract concept—something that happens to "other" people; it is part of our daily lives.

As a woman, I had experienced some discrimination early in my career. But I hadn't thought as much about this problem until recently when new insight into the First Commandment helped me to see its role in eliminating inequality.
