In Oksapmin, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Christianity provides an idiom and organizational form that women use to engage the pressing problems of modernity. This thesis examines the life narratives of Christian women in order to determine the individual and collective forms of agency they enact through the church. It compares past and contemporary engagements with Christianity as a way to understand how women approach social change. By doing so, this thesis sheds light on changing gender relations in PNG.
