One unhelpful way we distinguish between women and men is by stereotyping what it means to be "feminine" and "masculine." In both the church and society, we've put a lot of cultural baggage on notions of womanhood and manhood that aren't necessarily mandated by Scripture. There are many unhelpful ways this plays out, but when it comes to work, we see its detrimental effects in two main areas: career choice and career behavior. Both women and men are expected to do certain jobs in certain ways. But what does the Bible say about such things? Can we celebrate our different work contributions without sidelining one another in the process?
