My research focuses on how women’s vulnerability to domestic violence can be influenced by practices and beliefs that create and maintain gender inequality in the Christian Church.

Presently I’m undertaking a case study analysis of a woman who was subjected to decades of abuse fueled by the understanding that her husband was to be in authority over her and all decisions relative to their married life.

This case study provides a retrospective view on the development of the participant’s experiences of abuse, along with a detailed account of how the beliefs promoted through various church communities contributed significantly to this development.
