Declaration for greater gender justice

The Mission Synod received the declaration for greater gender justice submitted by the women’s conference on Saturday. The document addresses two pressing issues: First, the discrimination of women and girls in education and remuneration, and second, the violence against women worldwide. The women’s conference is asking the international network of Mission 21 to carry on the fight for greater gender justice through education and advocacy. The ongoing campaign under the heading of “I walk with…” serves as a purveyor of the solidarity message to the public at large.

We are pleased with the successful completion of the Mission Synod week and would like to extend our special thanks to the Cantonal Church of Aargau and the City Church of Aarau for their generous support.
