Role of Religion in Advancing Gender Equality

F2A will facilitate a session titled “Faith that moves policies: spotlights from the right by her report”

This session will discuss the importance of faith based actors actively engaging in formulating and implementing policies on gender equality. It highlights successful policy changes led by faith actors in different African countries, and governance levels as captured in the recently released Right By Her Report. It draws on the experiences of Faith to Action Network members to bring out significant challenges encountered in policy-making processes. The session will also discuss effective strategies needed to shift attitudes, policy, and practice in the direction of gender equality.
