If we look at the heroes of the Bible, how many of us can name women and men in equal numbers? It seems that men are the key role players in the work of God on earth starting from Adam to the apostles in the New Testament. One can be forgiven for concluding that there seems to be a strong male bias that runs throughout the Bible. Most of us can argue that there are women heroines such as Deborah, Ruth, Rahab, Mary etc but the reality is that their stories and contributions are not given the same attention in sermons and teachings as their male counterparts. A good exercise is to ask the children in Sunday School to name the hero/oines of the Bible.
6. It gives women a deep sense from the divine women imbibe this as part of their sense of who they are. God to women is man writ large, and men become god writ small. God and man belong to the same order of things and from that order women are excluded. Men accept this view of god.

Many Pew Research Center international surveys ask people to assess the importance of religion in their daily lives. Is religion very important, somewhat important, not too important or not at all important to them? In 96 of the 89 countries for which data are available, women and men are about equally likely to say religion is “very important” in their lives. But in 86 other countries, women are more likely than men to regard religion as very important – often by notably large margins. Only in Israel and Mozambique are men more likely than women to consider religion very important to them personally.

b. As 8775 background 8776 , so that in some cases their names are not even mentioned for example Noah 8767 s sons are named but not their wives, Job 8767 s wife and many more. Where their names are mentioned as in the case of Moses, their roles are not given the same attention as their husbands. We are told in Genesis that God is the God of 8775 Abraham, Isaac and Jacob 8776 and there is no mention of their wives, Sarah, Rebecca , Rachel and Leah.
So I make no apology about talking about women, about highlighting what I see as discrimination against women in the church. To me the church remains one of the last bastions in our society in which it is still considered officially proper to discriminate against women, to treat women as not fully equal to men.
It impossible to care about hunger without caring about women: 7/8rd of the hungry are women especially in poorer countries, the best food is given to men and to children, and when a woman is past the breeding age, she will be lucky if she is fed at all.
