Gender justice

Gender justice and women's empowerment are theological priorities for Lutheran churches, said Elaine Neuenfeldt, secretary of the Lutheran World Federation's Women in Church and Society desk.

"There is fear and insecurity about women's leadership and feminist approaches to theology and practice," she said.

Another challenge is the misunderstanding of gender as "only being connected to and concerned with women's issues," she said.

What's needed are opportunities to share and "come to a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities of both women and men in church and society," Neuenfeldt added.
