Women, and especially in Africa have been demeaned and oppressed for along time. In my book, I have proposed that the Church needs to work in solidarity with the suffering so as to realize the reign of the mystery of Christ amongst us.By developing the image of 'the people of God' the Church will enhance the empowerment of women on their rights, raising awareness on the effects of polygyny, involving women in decision making. Mercy Amba Oduyoye (1995),states "A Church that consistently ignores the implications of the gospel for the lives of women and other underclass cannot continue to an authentic voice for salvation" (182). The ecclessiology of the people of God is a better model of the Church because of its emphasis on equality,and full participation of all members, clergy and laity. The deprivation of women's rights cannot be allowed in the 21st century, it is the role of the Church more especially in Africa, to liberate women from their systematic oppressions.
