    The concept of gender has acquired moral, sociological and political implications that undermine its usefulness, and these implications form a hidden sub-stratum to conversations on the subject. This is particularly evident where some religiously-based discourses are involved. The Roman Catholic Church, an influential player in the politics of world development and an organisation in which a culture of patriarchy has become deeply entrenched, has a particular stake in this area of concern and engagement, especially as it relates to SDG5 to ‘achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.'
