Message from the Women's Pre-Assembly
The Hunger for Justice and the Bread of Life [PDF, 2MB]
The message from the Women’s Pre-Assembly expresses a strong yearning for cultural transformation in the Lutheran communion and wider society.
Encouraging statistics about women’s ordination in LWF member churches mask a reality of gender disparity and marginalization, the Women’s Pre-Assembly heard.
Women's Pre-Assembly participants are asking the LWF to do more to ensure gender equity in its governing bodies and sensitivity to issues that affect women.
The Women’s Pre-Assembly opening session noted that gender inequality marks global food realities. The LWF must work for a sustainable global community with gender justice at its center.
