What is Gender Equality?

Gender equality (equality between women and men – boys and girls) refers to the equal rights, responsibilities, and opportunities for male and female. Equality does not mean that women and men will become the same but that women’s and men’s opportunities, and responsibilities will not depend on whether they are born male or
female. Gender equality implies that the interests, needs, and priorities of women, men, girls and boys are taken into careful consideration. 

The Theology of Gender Equality is built upon ten, theological principles that enable participation and inclusion of both men and women in creating and sustaining communities that reaffirm, respect, and celebrate that being female and male are divine gifts. For after creating the man and woman God saw that it was very good (Gen 1:31 )
