A Better Narrative of Gender

June 21, 2024

Haley Stewart interviews Dr. Abigail Favale, a professor in the McGrath Institute for Church Life at the University of Notre Dame and the author of The Genesis of Gender: A Christian Theory. In this episode we discuss how to communicate the sacramentality of the body to young children in a culture that’s confused about gender and embodiment. We also talk about the importance of good stories in sharing better narratives of femininity and masculinity, what the Barbie movie may have gotten right, and Dr. Favale’s brand new book for children: Here I Am
