Lutheran World Federation: Gender Justice Policy

The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) is committed to being inclusive and enabling the full and equitable participation of women and men in church life and society, and in its decision-making processes, activities and programs.

This LWF Gender Justice Policy, approved by the LWF Council in 2013, is a tool to enhance the communion’s journey towards inclusiveness. Developed in a participatory process, it has grown out of experiences in member churches, is enriched by the biblical and theological bases of Lutheran identity, and provides guidance and methodologies for contextualizing action plans and strategies in the regions and integrating gender as a cross-cutting priority in all of the communion’s work.
