Equal in Faith


Starting tomorrow April 5 through Thursday April 7 please join JOFA collaborating with Radical Grace, Sojourners, Muslims for Progressive Values, Ordain Women, FutureChurch, and Faithfully Feminist for a conversation between women religious leaders of different faiths. These women will share challenges, opportunities, and personal experiences navigating women’s roles and leadership opportunities within their own communities — and how we can all benefit from sharing these lessons across faiths

This conversation will be moderated by Gina Messina-Dysert featuring Maharat Ruth Balinsky Friedman, Kate Kelly, Kathy KyoungAh Khang, Christine Schenk, and Ani Zonneveld. We’ll be crowdsourcing questions about how women across faiths challenge patriarchy and press for greater female leadership using the hashtag #EqualinFaith or fill in this questionnaire with questions for the panelists.
