Ko tōku Mana Wahine: A theological reflection on mana wahine and how mana wahine influences Gender Justice and reduces Gender Based Violence.
This talk will discuss the Māori concept of Mana Wahine as compared to gender equality and women’s leadership in the Bible. We will examine the execution of the concept by a range of individuals and how this concept of feminist leadership can be influential in eradicating gender based violence in New Zealand.

Ruihana has been part of the AWSC since 2014 as a link, she is excited and honored to step-up to the role of council member. She is interested in the origins of the AWSC and hopes to contribute to a legacy of female leadership that enhances that which she stands upon. She is the National Youth Coordinator for Tikanga Māori working with youth enablers, developing the next generation of leadership in the Church. She would like to see provincial bodies collaborating more, so they can better plan how tikanga roles can be supported to achieve our dreams and aspirations for developing young female leaders and academics.
Ko Toku Mana Wahine is the third in a series of Virtual Theology Chats, hosted by the Anglican Women’s Studies Centre.
