OPSOMMING

Meer as 30 jaar nadat die Algemene Kerkvergadering van die Nederduitsch Hervormde Kerk van Afrika die predikantsamp vir vroue oopgestel het, lyk dit of daar steeds 'n stryd gevoer word ten opsigte van gelykheid tussen die geslagte in die predikantsberoep. Statistieke wys dat die getal vroueteoloë steeds baie klein is en dat daar min vroue is wat voltyds in die bediening staan. Vroueteoloë is om hulle menings gevra in 'n poging om die stilte oor die onderwerp te verbreek. Diskriminasie, tradisie en aannames speel steeds 'n bepalende rol in vroueteoloë se werksomgewing. Vroue werk harder en vir minder geld as hulle manlike kollegas. 'n Paradigmaskuif is noodsaaklik sodat gelowiges bemagtig word om die evangelie ongehinderd aan 'n verlore en snel veranderende wêreld te bring.


ABSTRACT

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.
