During more than 20 years of the Woman, Thou Art Loosed! international gatherings, women have firmly stood at the forefront of social change, unafraid to use their voices for justice. As the U.S. continues to grapple with COVID-19, women are coming together, motivated by faith, to worship, reflect and learn virtually as the conference goes completely digital Oct. 15-17. Designed and created by Bishop T.D. Jakes, Master Class—exclusively offered at Woman, Thou Art Loosed!—will help women advance in their spheres of influence across business, entertainment, healthcare, technology, finance and ministry.

During this year’s three-day virtual event, Woman, Thou Art Loosed! Master Class will discuss current topics including Black Lives Matter, education, social justice in entertainment, mental health and how to turn anger into action. Featured speakers include mother of Trayvon Martin, Sybrina Fulton; CEO of REFORM Alliance and CNN host Van Jones; mother of Bothem Jean, Allison Jean; nationally acclaimed trauma therapist and life coach Anita Philips; communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist Caroline Leaf; journalist and former NBCUniversal executive Paula Madison; and others.

Woman, Thou Art Loosed! began as one of Bishop T.D. Jakes’ most popular books. Realizing the need to continually empower women outside the pages of his book, Jakes created one of the most successful global women’s conferences. Since the conference’s inception in 1996, Jakes has become one of the most popular Christian leaders in the U.S. For decades Jakes has brought inspirational and motivational speakers to the stage to help women around the world be loosed from a myriad of strongholds including depression, guilt, loss of faith and helplessness. The conference will take its curtain call next year in Atlanta.
