Lauren Jacobs

As a pastor, Lauren is in a male-dominated world. But since an early age she has found herself a young, tenacious spokeswoman for women no matter her environment. Tackling issues of gender based violence before it became something that was widely discussed, Lauren has vast professional experience in supporting, listening to and empowering women. Through her advocacy of addressing issues of gender based violence through faith communities, she has landed on a powerful key to help make positive changes in South Africa and the world. Her discussion on women's representation in biblical texts is fascinating. This is a must watch for anyone of faith who wants to look at how their religious community can assist in overcoming violence against women and a thought provoking story for all. Lauren didn't plan on this path for herself initially, but we know she's in the right place to make her unique impact on the world!
