For Gods Sake or God Forbid! - Women and Faith

For centuries, faith based institutions, have reflected dominant social patterns and structures, including male authority and privilege. Yet the faith and courage of women keep these institutions alive for example behind the iron curtain; mothering reached across centuries of sectarian divisions in Northern Ireland to build a new era of peace. (need more appropriate examples from our region)

Women from all faiths contribute to a session that looks at the place of faith in their lives, the strength they draw from it, and what they share across different traditions.
