What is a Woman? (with Katie McCoy)

During the Senate Confirmation hearings of the latest Supreme Court Justice, Ketanji Brown Jackson was asked to define the term “woman.”  Her answer reflected the confusion in the culture about gender.  How would you define what a woman is?  On what basis would you make that determination?  How should we think about the number of minor children undergoing gender affirming treatments, and those who are de-transitioning?  Join Scott as he discusses these questions and more with his guest Katie McCoy and her new book To Be a Woman: The Confusion over Female Identity and How Christians Can Respond.

Katie McCoy serves as director of Women’s Ministry at Texas Baptists (Baptist General Convention of Texas). She holds a Ph.D. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where she previously served on faculty. She blogs regularly on the site blondeorthodoxy.
