Christianity is undoubtedly a patriarchal and androcentric religion. I say undoubtedly, aware that there are many who will contest this (at least to our minds) incontrovertible fact. Feminist scholars of the ilk of Mary Daly1 and Daphne Hampson2 have long argued against the male centred and male privileged character of Christianity in their feminist writings. In the British context, whilst not seeking to align her work with the aforemen­ tioned, Elaine Foster's M.Phil thesis3 on Black women in Black-led churches proved an important milestone in charting the patriarchal nature of Black Christianity in Britain.
