We need more women in biblical studies
Carmen Imes posted a telling photo on her personal blog recently. An Old Testament professor and author of a newly-contracted book with IVP Academic, she posted a photo of her personal library.
With a twist.
All of the books authored by women she left spine out. All the books authored by men she turned edge out.
A picture is really worth a thousand words.
More than 90% of the books in this woman’s library were written by men.
[inlinetweet prefix=”” tweeter=”” suffix=””]Of course, there’s nothing wrong with books written by men. It’s not the presence of these books that’s the problem, it’s the absence of other voices. [/inlinetweet]
That’s why I believe in advocating for and advancing the voices of women in the realm of academic publishing.
