Two words that seem to have fueled the world’s understanding of women in culture in recent decades. Female empowerment is, at its core, about helping girls and women recognize their worth. Seems innocent enough, right? If only it were so simple. It’s apparent that Christian mothers and girls today are at a crossroads. How can girls and women claim to advocate for “girl power” when the feminist movement in America is tied to so many activities and beliefs that directly oppose Christian values? Embracing the concepts behind “girl power” as a Christian must be impossible, you say? It doesn’t have to be. Why? God’s power.
