95% of people across the Pacific identify as Christian and the church’s teachings have a massive influence on people’s behaviour. But ~68% of women and girls experience violence in their homes and communities. We support Pacific churches to address gender inequality and violence by re-examining their theology.
We support a network of Pacific theologians to create theological resources and lead dialogue in gender theology; run workshops to engage men and women in examining beliefs and behaviour; and invest in education and livelihoods projects that empower women.
This project is part funded by the Australian Government through the Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development initiative.
