To translate our prophetic responses into flesh and blood realities, we need a paradigm shift in our praxis which calls for crossing boundaries with renewed commitment. In order to address the burning issues that concern women, we recommend to all women and men of good will the following:
28. In General
28.1. To join hands with secular movements especially the feminist, ecological and other subaltern ones, that work for the dignity, rights and liberation of all the people and earth.
28.2. To promote women’s empowerment through education and other consciousness-raising programmes.
28.3. To mobilize pressure groups that advocate the cause of women against violence, sexual abuse and other forms of harassment.
28.4. To counteract the print and electronic media’s efforts to make of women's body a commodity or an object for commercial exploitation.
28.5. To promote women's participation in the public sphere especially in the policy-making bodies of government and other social institutions.
28.6. To help organize self-help groups and women's cooperatives at the grassroots and ensure that they are not co-opted by vested interests.
29. In Church's ministries
29.1. To ensure adequate representation of women in bodies like the parish and diocesan pastoral councils, finance committee and CBCI/CCBI commissions.
29.2. To create structures that would involve women in the decision -making processes.
29.3. To empower women's commissions with adequate funds.
29.4. To ensure just remuneration for women's work in the ecclesiastical setup.
29.5 To promote the participation of women in liturgical celebrations so that they can share from their wisdom and experience in the breaking of the Word of God.
29.6. To use traditions and scriptural texts judiciously and discerningly by identifying anti-women texts and avoiding them in liturgy. Instead, use more pro- feminist and liberative passages introducing the assertive women of the scriptures: the daughters of Zelophehad, Deborah, Judith, Queen Vasthi, the courageous midwives in Exodus 1, 'and others. Emphasize the place and importance of women like Mary Magdalene, the first witness and announcer of the Resurrection.
29.7. To present Mary as a liberated and liberating woman and highlighting her empowering potential.
29.8. To popularize inclusive language in conversations, liturgy, catechesis, and homilies.
29.9. To denounce discrimination and violence against women as sin from the pulpit and in faith education, in Formation Houses and Seminaries
29.10 To make conscious efforts to replace exclusive masculine symbols and vocabulary for divine-human realities with inclusive models.
29.11 To recognize the expertise of women in various ecclesiastical and secular disciplines and use their services for the larger Christian community by appointing women professors to seminaries and other formation programmes.
29.12. To appoint women councillors and spiritual directors to seminaries and theologates in order to help the seminarians develop a healthy interaction with and respect for women as equal partners.
29.13. To educate persons in formation on the positive aspects of human love and sexuality and highlighting their beauty and spirituality.
29.14. To introduce gender sensitization programmes and feminist theology into seminary formation, the ongoing-formation of priests and also in the formation of religious, in order to inculcate in them healthy attitudes towards women.
