In a Different Voice: Women Faith Leaders on Advancing Peace and Security

Drawing on the expertise of three women leaders from three different faiths, this webinar explored the following questions: why did we see so much faith-related violence with devastating consequences for women all over the world in 2014 and can we expect more in 2015? Are women religious leaders an untapped force for peace and security in today’s most violent, faith-related conflicts? How can feminist peace and security funders strengthen the voices and influence of women religious leaders within their own religious communities and beyond? This webinar was moderated by PSFG member Leith Greenslade, Vice-Chair, Child Health MDG Health Alliance Office of the UN Special Envoy for Financing the Health Millennium Development Goals.
