Lecture by Angelina Yeboah Lartey: Pentecoastal/Charismatic Movement in Ghana: the Trajectory of Ghanaian Women in Ministerial Leadership
Meeting-ID: 643 3690 7423
The study seeks to explore, discuss, and analyze the ongoing path of women in leadership in the Pentecostal/Charismatic movement in Ghana The main intent of my research is to systematically analyze the stance taken by both the Ghanaian classical and neo-Pentecostal/Charismatic traditions on women in ministry and leadership roles. In addition, I will point out parallels between these two traditions of women’s leadership and how the leadership roles of women have evolved over the years. I will then attempt to answer the question of whether the different viewpoints are conditioned by culturally embedded societal male hegemony. My work also seeks to dissect the Ghanaian socio-cultural atmosphere and belief systems, and its direct effects on the ability of women to climb the leadership ladder. Another important aspect is to present notable evidence of women’s achievement in ministerial and leadership offices.
