The reformer Marie Dentière

On each side of the Reformation Wall monument in Geneva there are stones bearing the names of Luther and Zwingli, two leaders of the Reformation in Europe. On the block where Zwingli’s name is carved we find another name, that of Marie Dentière. She was one of the women of the Reformation, a theologian who played an active role in religion and politics in Geneva. Dentière preached regularly and advocated for the role of women in religious practice.

Women’s March in Geneva

This morning we marched with the women and men of Geneva to raise awareness and fight for gender justice and equality. A group from our local Lutheran church was there with this nice sign in French.
