Audit of Gender Related Policies in Southern African Churches. 2008
Published by Pietermaritzburg Agency for Christian Social Awareness 2008
The purpose of this research was to serve as a model reflective tool/device for churches when engaging with gender discourse and not to be an exhaustive academic analysis. By examining the relevant policies, doctrines and to some extent practices of each selected church, this report seeks to serve as a model that can be reproduced in other churches. 3 church and gender audits were undertaken in 2006-7 in three southern African countries - Zambia, Malawi and South Africa. The purpose of the audits was to assess the levels of gender consciousness in churches as well as how these are lived out in the work and teachings of these churches.
