The orthodox protestant christian website Refoweb offers an anonymous form of pastoral care. Visitors of the website have the opportunity to submit questions to the questions section. In this article, questions about gender are analyzed. Questions deal about women’s clothing and the problem women experience with the idea that man is the head of the wife. From a dualistic point of view, males are associated with the mind and spirit and females are associated with the body. Some questioners experience this as inferior and oppressive. Questioners articulate their agency within the context of orthodox Protestantism.
