Frauen Können Mehr

by Irene Fiedler

While the author was still a student at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda (1968/69), she realized how important women are, in the society and in the church. After Makerere, she worked for seven years in the Kania la Biblia in Southern Tanzania. While living in Matemanga, she established the church's Women's Ministry, which she continued to lead from Songea and Mbinga. In this book she looks back on her life, work and thinking in those years, based on her diaries and correspondence. This she augments by information on related developments over the last 50 years, which equally show that women are able to do things.
Als die Autorin noch Studentin an der Makerere Universität in Kampala, Uganda, war (1968/69), wurde ihr klar, wie wichtig die Frauen sind, in Kultur und Kirche. Sie arbeitete dann sieben Jahre in der Kanisa la Biblia in Südtanzania. In Matemanga begann sie den Aufbau der überregionalen Frauenarbeit der Kirche, die sie dann von Songea und Mbinga aus weiterführte. Das Buch beschreibt rückblickend ihr Leben, Arbeiten und Denken in diesen Jahren aufgrund ihrer Tagebücher und ihrer Korrespondenz.
