Women and Gender

In all our activities, Mission 21 advocates the establishment of gender equality. Together with women’s networks, partner churches and partner organisations, Mission 21 searches for ways to abolish gender hierarchies and discriminations, ways which are suitable for each local situation.

The Special Desk:

  • offers financial support to strengthen and advance women and women’s networks in the partner churches and partner organisations in Asia, Africa and Latin America,
  • organises lectures and offers information on feminist theology from a southern perspective,
  • publishes the Women’s Letter once a year (see box on the right side for download). The Women’s Letter offers women from all four continents a platform for exchange. It is published in English, German, Spanish and Indonesian.
  • publishes Mission 21´s Women and Gender Network blog
    This blog is a tool to network and exchange experiences between women from the international network of Mission 21. Under the categories «News»,  «Portraits»,  «Tools» and  «Remembering», you'll find texts on topics important to them. The blog is available in English, German, Spanish, French and Indonesian.
