Main issues and concerns
A Gender Equality Bureau (women’s desk) has been set up within the provincial structure since 2009.
Women are present but not equally represented on decision-making bodies such as diocesan or provincial committees, but 20-30 per cent in vestries.
The Women’s Desk (Gender Equality Bureau) links to a provincial network, women’s groups such as Mother’s Union and Girls’ Friendly Society, the Holy Cross Society (sisters), and ecumenical bodies.
