The status of women in the patriarchal church and society in Mizoram from a feminist perspective is not very progressive. As the patriarchal mindset and attitudes towards women remain the same even in the digital age of the 21st century, women are still in a state of “freedom in captivity.” Even though many women achieved higher economic status and hold various responsibility as top positions they still remain “women” in the patriarchal structure of the society. Thus, it is the need of the hour to accept women as human being like men who have dignity, identity and rights in their own. These issues have been addressed by Mizo women theologians in the context of Mizoram, where the writers have employed feminist perspective. We cannot address all the women’s issues in this book but major concerns have been taken up for further reconsideration. We raise our voices, we raise our concerns that women and men are created in God’s image which is to be reflected in our society and church. Contents Editorial 1.
