Egalitarian Complementarity for Integral Development


"And they’re marching for you, baby
they’re marching for us
because we deserve to do more than just survive
we deserve to thrive…
so just close those eyes, baby
and sleep in peace
because we won’t let you down, you’ll see."

Egalitarian Complementarity for Integral Development

What goes around, comes around. The integral development of men is harmed as much as that of women when the feminine half of humanity is undervalued and the masculine half is overvalued. For the same reason, there can be no integral ecology as long as the patriarchal gender binary prevails in human/male-nature/female relations, as the COP21 Paris Agreement painfully shows.

COP21, Climate Change, and Mother Earth, by David Hayward, 22 December 2015

Thankfully, the age of patriarchy (as defined in Genesis 3:16) is passing away. The patriarchal family model of male headship is evolving toward joint male-female (father-mother) headship. Nurturing this egalitarian complementarity of man and woman, in both secular and religious institutions, is crucial to foster integral human development and social/ecological justice.
