Women and the Worldwide Reformation

Aten Bhuinya. Photo: UEM

Also young women like Aten Bhuinya are part of the reformation. Within UEM there are many examples for female reformators. The Evangelical Church of the Rhineland for example has produced an exposition on the historical female reformators with the title "Reformatorinnen seit 1517". This photo has been taken at the reformation festival "wider outlook works" in Halle last year.

On Sunday, January 22, 2017 the German broadcasting station WDR 5 mentioned the statements of three women from UEM member churches in Indonesia and the Democratic Republic of Congo on how the church in their countries shall continue with the reformation process according to their opinion. Hereafter you can listen to the original voices of all women who we asked for a statement:
