Can you be religious and a feminist?
- Created on Friday, 04 March 2016
Join friends from the Christian Muslim Forum at this year's Women of the World Festival at the Weston Pavillion, Southbank Centre, London SE1, on Sunday 13 March at 3pm - 4.30pm, celebrating International Women's Day 2016.
The Women and Faith panel includes The Revd Lucy Winkett, St James's Church, Piccadilly, Akeela Ahmed (Family Specialist with the Forum, Government adviser and editor of She Speaks We Hear), Ruth Yimika Awogbade, founder and editor of Magnify magazine, Dina Brawer of the Jewish Orthodox Feminist Alliance and Geetha Maheshwaran of the Shree Ghanapathy Temple, Wimbledon.
The discussion "Can you be religious and a feminist? Does faith help or hinder gender equality and what are women of faith doing about it?" will be chaired by the Forum's Catriona Robertson.
We have a fantastic line-up of women leading activist hubs immediately after the panel discussion from 4pm to around 4.30pm:
