WATCH and Gender Justice
WATCH (Women and the Church) launched “A Gender Justice Policy for the Church of England” at a joint fringe event at the July 2016 General Synod. Members heard from Christian Aid, USPG and the Mothers' Union how gender justice has come to form a crucial element of their international development work. We also heard that the Anglican Communion has now signed up to the global 'Side by Side' movement for gender justice.
The policy is available here and includes a draft Synod motion which we hope Synod members will take through their Diocesan Synods this Autumn.
