Interfaith and Women

ladiesRegional Interfaith Dialogues have affirmed the increase of gender diversity in Interfaith activities. The work of women in sharing, participation, humanitarian initiatives, development and peace-building is expanding.

Interfaith practitioners believe that all human beings have moral, spiritual and intellectual capacities which could be best developed towards the attainment of human dignity.

Education at all levels and in various contexts can play a significant role in promoting interfaith understanding and cooperation. The contribution of women in religious and faith communities is increasing, and cements the non-formal and informal education in human and religious values which provides the foundations for peace and harmony, cooperation and respect in society and culture.

Regional Interfaith Dialogue recommends the development of mechanisms by which the role of women in interfaith activity can be further recognised, including through the establishment of women’s interfaith forums and by providing training and support.
