Remedies for Sexism.
(i) Education should be used as a tool against gender-based discrimination.
- For example, parents should bring up their children without any bias.
- In all educational institutions, teachers should treat both boys and girls as equal human beings whose intellectual abilities do not depend on their gender.
(ii) Rural women should be enlightened on their rights.
- They should be sensitized that they have other roles to play other than domestic work.
- Awareness should also be created in men on their roles and the need to share family responsibilities with the women. This process will create men and women who are gender-sensitive and will respect each other’s rights.
(iii) Formation of lobby groups that expose gender-based violence and provide support mechanisms. For example, Federation of International Women Lawyers (FIDA), Coalition on Violence Against Women(COVAW) and Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE).
(iv) The church should be instrumental in its role as the prophetic voice to speak against gender-based discrimination;
- The church should follow the example of Jesus Christ in His ministry who uplifted the status of women.
(v) The church should allow ordination of women into priesthood.
- Some churches have authorized the ordination of some women who have proved to be effective in their pastoral duties.
- The church must enable women to exploit their potentials through greater access to theological education.
