Women of Faith: Suffrage, Peace and Human Rights

A dialogue and launch event
for men and women of all faiths and beliefs

This new educational resource “Women of Faith: Suffrage, Peace and Human Rights” has been produced by Interfaith Scotland and Religions for Peace UK Women of Faith Network. It tells the stories of extraordinary women of faith from around the world, from the Suffragette movement of the early 20th Century to the present day.

The women included are from the Christian, Sikh, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu and Baha’i traditions. Some are well known and some much less so. Their stories have been brought together for the first time to both inspire and challenge us all.

Join us to hear about two of the women featured – Malala and Ela Gandhi – and discuss the topic of “Education as a Human Right” with people from diverse faiths and beliefs.

This event is co-hosted by Interfaith Glasgow and supported by St Mungo Museum and takes the place of their monthly Faith to Faith dialogue event.
