The concept of gender justice is rooted in the Biblical vision that women and men are created in the image of God (Genesis 1.27), made one in Christ (Galatians 3.28), and called and equipped by the Spirit to proclaim the good news of God’s saving love (Acts 2.17-18), seeking first the righteousness and justice of the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6.33).
Gender justice is for all people, for the health and wellbeing of individuals, the church and the world. Working for gender justice is an instrumental part of building healthy, interdependent relationships and communities.
It is a mission imperative that the Church of England should seek to transform its own structures as well as those of the society it serves. The Church can provide essential leadership on this vital issue by working together to promote gender justice at every level, for everyone.
