The Anglican Consultative Council - Gender Justice Curriculum Project

Gender-based and domestic violence are symptoms of unjust power relations between women and men. Other symptoms are the lack of women in decision-making roles and unequal access to knowledge and resources. Such inequalities are reflected in our churches as well as in our broader communities. Church leaders can play a pivotal role in teaching, preaching and modelling equitable and just gender relationship. Ministerial formation in this area is therefore essential.

The MB Reckitt Trust is supporting the International Anglican Women’s Network with resources for an international academic workshop in Kenya to finalise a curriculum for theology and pastoral skills relating to gender equality and preventing gender-based violence. The curriculum will be disseminated to theological colleges around the world and used in the training of ministers and other church workers.
