We join with other women in their aspirations and their struggle to be recognised in their dignity.
Today women are called to unite in an effort to bring about the integral liberation of the human person and break down all unjust structures. Let us participate actively in all these efforts to make our world more human. This is also true for the Church. May it give women their rightful place; may it welcome and encourage women’s initiatives.
Bishops of Uganda – 1997: “The absence of an adequate education was and still is a big obstacle to the full liberation of women. A community or a Church which ignores the educational promotion of their women will neither grow nor have a positive influence on the population, as it should have.”
Mgr Mpundu – 2nd Synod for Africa – 2009: “Denial of equality to women is an affront to human dignity and denial of true development to humanity.”
