The dignity and the human rights of women is the civil rights issue of our time.  

The Women’s Task Force of the Parliament of the World’s Religions wishes to celebrate women’s leadership across the world’s religions, as well as explore new ways of fostering interfaith harmony and religious literacy that champions the contributions of women in their religious traditions and in improving our world.

Join a robust panel of women Trustees of the Parliament of the World’s Religions (and invested men) who will offer insights on the issues of women’s dignity that matter to each of them in their roles within religious and spiritual communities, interfaith communities, and as global citizens.
