Myth # 2 Women are too emotional/irrational to be leaders
Some people consider leadership to be a gender issue. If you’re not male, don’t bother applying, sums it up pretty well.
I believe that leadership is a gift, a call, an anointing.
It’s not gender based.
It’s a shame that the church has a reputation of being anti-women-in-leadership. And it’s due to our traditions & history that have said all may come to Christ, all may enter the Kingdom.
But once you enter the Kingdom you discover the gender prejudice.
So, if we say women are too emotional for leadership shouldn’t we also say men are too rational for leadership, too cut & dry, way too distant. Especially for leadership that requires a heightened awareness of people.
Why does this happen?
