The Link between Domestic Violence and Porn

We need to go upstream and understand that behind men’s control of women and the murder of intimate partners sits two key drivers; gender inequality and holding to traditional and rigid gender stereotypes. Access to pornography is perhaps the most marked change across these generations.

A System Called Patriarchy

Patriarchy is the rule of men and the idea of the subordination of women. Establishing male dominance and control in personal relationships, the family and society at large.

My Wrestle with the Modern Church

“If religion is worth holding on to, it should be the place where the marginalized feel the most visible, where the hurting receive the most tender care, where the outsiders find the safest refuge. It should be where diversity is fiercely pursued and equality loudly championed; where all of humanity finds a permanent home and where justice runs the show”. John Pavlovitz

If women were truly equal, and treated with equality and respect, such treatment would be unthinkable. They wouldn’t be objectified, sexualised, and treated as fodder for the twin industries of prostitution and pornography. The second class status of women makes all this possible.

Women in Leadership

The question of women serving as Christian leaders is old, yet the debates continue to rage. In the USA not only are denominations caught up in this debate (particularly over women’s ordination), but the issue of women’s roles in the church, overall, envelopes evangelism; and divisions remain at every level of the evangelical community, including across denominations, seminaries, and local congregations.
