A group of former world leaders, calling themselves “The Elders,” have suggested that a fundamental cause for the abuse and oppression of women around the world is religion.  Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandella and the other nine “Elders” are calling upon the religions of the world to abandon harmful traditional practices and promote religious and social equality for women and girls.

This conversation with Dr. Kevin Zuber, Professor of Theology at the Moody Bible Institute, examines and answers some of the claims of “The Elders” regarding religion and the oppression of women.

The videos included in today’s feature can be found on their website.
