Home |  News | Church & Gender Equality: New Resource and Tool Box from PMU

Side by Side member organisation PMU has published a new resource and tool box to assist churches in becoming a strong voice and actor for gender equality in society. The book gives a theological perspective to gender equality work, provides concrete tools to take action on gender equality in organisations and churches, and provides examples by sharing experiences from PMU’s network of faith-based actors.

“At PMU we are convinced that gender equality is the key to building sustainable Churches, organizations and societies. When we read the Bible we see a beautiful story of creation and salvation where God intended for women and men to live in equality.

“Hierarchies, discrimination and inequality are not from God, and as Christian Churches and faith based development actors one of our top priorities should be to promote gender equality so that we can reflect the image of God as it was meant to be. This book gives a theological perspective to gender equality work, provides concrete tools to take action on gender equality in organizations and Churches, as well as to provide examples by sharing experiences from our network of faith-based actors.”
