dc.description.abstract This article sets out to discuss, from an African feminist theological perspective, the Accra confession: Covenanting for justice in the economy and the earth (hereafter the Accra Confession). It uses descriptive analyses to understand the role and implications of the confession for ecological, gender and economic justice. The first part of the essay briefly describes the history behind the confession. The second part gives a detailed overview of the contents, scope and thematic issues addressed by the confession. The third interprets the confession and analyses its implications for the church and society. The fourth part explores feminist and women’s responses and or critiques of the Accra confession, thus outlining its relevance for feminist theologies and ethics, and their conceptions of economic, ecological and gender justice. en
