- This episode talks about women and work: what does Scripture say about work in and outside of the home? Is it okay for a woman to work? What cultural influences color our perspective on this topic? We get a glimpse of how Victorian culture sparked the early feminist movement and how that carries over to the church today.
- Should a Christian woman call herself a feminist? Does Scripture support the feminism we see today? This episode talks about the nuanced issue of feminism, whether Jesus was a feminist, and whether or not we can admire the work of modern day feminist icons.

- What role can women play in the body of Christ? This is a topic of much debate in the church today. This episode breaks down some of the hard passages on women's authority, leadership and speaking. Also covered is the difference between OT and NT prophecy and how theology on spiritual gifts impacts female leadership in the church.
- In this episode we discuss the hot topics of marriage for women: Complementarian versus egalitarian, what submission really is, if women are more “easily deceived”, and more.
- Is singleness a second class status? Why does the church treat singles like they're in a holding pattern? What does the Bible say about sexual desire, masturbation, and the value of unmarried life? We delve into all these questions and more in this episode of the Women's Issues series. Resources mentioned: Sam Allberry Lore Wilbert Nancy Demoss Wolgemot
