In her role as Minister of Women’s and Gender Justice, she gives her attention to creating resources for and informing UCC folks about current concerns that affect people because of their gender. She works alongside her colleagues in Gender and Sexuality Justice Ministries to focus on issues involving reproductive justice, bodily autonomy, human sexuality and gender identity, and contemporary topics that affect us all but more often women and girls such as period poverty and normalizing menstruation, body acceptance, gender-based violence, caregiving and parenting, and pushing back against patriarchal norms.
