The Logia Initiative and Women Scholars in Divinity

I just heard the news that the Logos Institute for Analytic and Exegetical Theology at St. Andrews University has launched the Logia initiative which “seeks to support current female students and staff and encourage women to pursue divinity disciplines at the postgraduate level.”

Ridley College has started an annual conference on Evangelical Women in Academia, with another one coming in 2018.

At Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary there is nestled within their Kingdom Diversity center a Society for Women in Scholarship.

I think it fair to say that there is a huge lack of representation of women in biblical and theological studies (less so in religious studies I’m told). Several institutions, including some seminaries, are trying to encourage and enable women to be engaged in divinity studies and scholarship. Yes, I know much is still to be done. Yes, I know that some will criticize their view of women and leadership as the cause for the lack of women in scholarship. But this is a good start, so give credit where credit is due.
