Gender Justice movement (Church of Christ)

"Gender Justice" is a phrase used by some members of the Churches of Christ to refer to their or their congregations' attitude toward gender roles. Proponents of Gender Justice base their approach on an interpretation of Galatians 3:28 that includes gender in Paul's insistence on lack of distinction between Jew or Greek, slave or free.[1] They promote access within the church to women for roles traditionally reserved for men and permitting men to engage in traditionally female roles as well.
