Lewis & Women #3 – The Fictional Women

LewisandWomen3This is the third of four shows that explores how C.S. Lewis viewed women. Some think he either hated females, or at least feared them. Even those who know this isn’t true have a hard time explaining why. Dr. Crystal Hurd, who has done a series of blog posts on the topic, is William O’Flaherty’s special guest to explore this topic. Gina Dalfonzo, the editor of Breakpoint.org joins in as guest co-host. This third podcast examines women that Lewis created in his stories. The focus is mostly on Narnia, but  Crystal also addresses equality between the sexes.
