OLIVER, Erna. Women theologians in the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church: An ongoing struggle. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2008, vol.34, suppl.1, pp.1-22. ISSN 2412-4265.

More than 30 years have passed since the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church, the second largest of the three traditional Afrikaans-speaking sister churches, opened the door for women to become ministers. Statistics are used to determine the present situation of women in the church. The number of women ministers is still small and only a few women are full-time ministers. A questionnaire gave insight into the feelings of the women working in the church. Discrimination, tradition and assumptions still play an important role in the church and women work harder for less pay than their male colleagues. A paradigm shift is necessary to end the voicelessness of women and to enable all Christians to proclaim the gospel to a lost and fast changing world.
