Elaine Storkey

  • The consensus appears to be that as it is presented and practiced in our churches the gospel is not Good News for women.

  • ... most churches on either side of the ocean see women as playing only a 'supportive,' if any, role in their congregations. Men preach, women listen. Men pray, women say 'Amen.' Men form the clergy, the diaconate or the oversight, women abide by their leadership. Men study theology, women sew for the bazaar. Men make decisions, women make the tea.

Elaine Storkey, English sociologist

(1943)
