What to watch for: The resolution would acknowledge that throughout history, men in the church have "wronged women, abused women, silenced women, objectified women by ungodly comments and ungodly acts, preyed on women, left women unprotected, failed to report injustices and evils committed against women to civil authorities established by God and failed to act out of the overflow of the image of Christ."
The convention's outgoing president, Steve Gaines, signed the resolution along with president of the Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Jason K. Allen, NBC reports.
The response: A rally is planned for the second day of the convention; the organizer, Cheryl Summers, told NBC the women participating want "reform of culture and for training of pastors and church leaders."
"If the church founded by Jesus Christ is not the safest place [for women], we're doing it wrong."
