In many marriages, especially in Africa, men use their traditional social status as bread winners and heads of their families to intimidate their wives into submission. Often, men can have employment that boosts them economically, but women are limited to kitchen and home duty. There has to be a deeper and more aggressive intervention from Christian scholars and leaders in addressing this issue by viewing women as equal to serve with men in both the church and society. This session will seek to transform our worldview through biblical teaching, help us embrace new ideas, and redefine our boundaries of operation.
