In June, three Cook School of Intercultural Studies doctoral students attended the American Society of Missiology conference. Together with their professor, they presented a panel session called "Justice Meets Justification: Women's Use of Holistic Approaches to World Mission."
Col Martin discussed the problem of Indonesian women who are trafficked, and two reasons which contribute to this issue while suggesting practical steps Christians can take to combat the problem. Sarah Wood discussed the use of health literacy to impact the lives of rural women in MENA (Middle East-North Africa) countries. Shawna Warner discussed the social pressures on daughters in Thai families that sometimes lead them into prostitution as a way to support their families. Finally, Dr. Leanne Dzubinski discussed how a class for women mission practitioners helped them also develop as scholars of mission.
