True womanhood has no limitations

A version of this article was published in The Christian Science Monitor, November 29, 2017.

Considering the implications of giving Saudi women the right to drive (see editorial on facing page) helped me appreciate my own journey in breaking barriers in thought regarding women.

For instance, I once was appointed to a position that automatically made me a member of a regional ecumenical group of about ten members. I was the first woman to participate in this group in years, and I approached this membership tentatively. At my first meeting, I was welcomed cordially, but I didn’t particularly feel I belonged. At my second meeting, most of the members didn’t even remember me, despite my being the only woman among them!
