"This cursory appraisal is based on my theological, pastoral and clinical experience as well as personal observations over the years. The impetus underlying these subsequent observations is an understanding of Orthodox theology as essentially being a theology of authentic relationships. I have written about this in another context. Due to the brevity of time, these observations are going to be shared from a phenomenological perspective. Nevertheless, sexism and violence against women in particular are reflective of disordered (and thus inauthentic) relationships. This general issue has been discussed in another context as well."
