Gender inequality has been broadly discussed in recent times, yet its impact on inclusive development remains a subject not commonly considered. This paper aims to seek out and understand the relationship between gender inequality and inclusive development. Our consideration of gender inequality is limited to domestic violence against women. We use the concept of inclusivity here to mean emphasizing the needs of disadvantaged and marginalized people (in this case, women), capacity building to enable the marginalized to use their opportunities, and the redistribution of power to allow for redistribution of resources. The study focuses on Ghana in West Africa and captures the religious elements that inform practices that demonstrate an imbalanced view of the male and female genders. Ghana constitutes a relevant case study given that religion penetrates the way Ghanaians formulate their worldview. Our interest is to look into the impact that religion, Charismatic Christianity in particular, has on domestic violence perpetration. At the same time, this paper does not mean to create a sole critique of religious and cultural interpretations. On the contrary, we seek to identify the opportunity for leaders and authorities to contribute to women's empowerment, as we firmly believe that religion and inclusive development can and must coexist and collaborate for the prosperity of society as a whole.
Keywords: Gender inequality, inclusive development, religion, domestic violence
