World wide: women continue to be the majority of farmers, water fetchers, child bearers and carers in the world - the providers of food and education.
Women continue to be raped, tortured, forced into marriage, trafficked for sex.
Girl children continue to be killed, prevented from education, treated as chattels.
Women continue to be paid less, to not have the vote in many countries, to not be allowed to drive in some.
So just what message has the CofE sent to the daughters, granddaughters, mothers, sisters, aunts, nieces of the world?
And what does it say to the sons, grandsons, fathers, brothers,uncles and nephews about how the church values women?
