Anglican church must rethink doctrine that has left a trail of devastated lives

We have a long way to go before our churches have any hope of being safe places for victims and survivors of family violence. A willingness to listen to survivors and to take seriously our pleas to the church to reconsider the headship/submission doctrine is a necessary beginning, but by no means the end. Until we see meaningful progress on this basic level, there is little hope we will see the structural, cultural and systemic changes that are so desperately needed.
