Interfaith feminists continue to challenge discrimination in religion

Take Action! #equalinfaith

Greetings!

Today, on Tuesday, August 26, 2014, "Equal in Faith" invites women and men of all faiths to mark National Women's Equality Day by joining a day-long social media campaign to draw attention to the marginalization of women in our faith communities and highlight the need for gender justice in religion.

Take action!

1. Post a photo and/or a message on Facebook and Twitter that includes the hashtag #equalinfaith and express your hope for religious gender equality. Be sure to make your post public. You can use one of the following suggestions or write your own.

- We are #equalinfaith

- Women of faith stand for equality #equalinfaith

- I am a feminist of faith #equalinfaith

 

2. "Like" the Equal in Faith Facebook Page, and visit the website equalinfaith.org (launching August 26th!) to help spread the word about Equal in Faith initiatives. Start a buzz!

3. Plan an action for International Women's Day!

During the next few months, Women's Ordination Conference, Ordain Women Now! of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, and the Mormon group, Ordain Women, will collectively host regional, interfaith planning sessions for a worldwide action for religious gender justice on March 8, 2015, International Women's Day.  Stay tuned for regional meet-up information.

For equality,

Erin Saiz Hanna

Executive Director

Equal in Faith was founded in 2013 by an interfaith coalition of women to call attention to the need for gender justice in religion. Equal in Faith organizers include representatives from Ordain Women (Mormon), the Women's Ordination Conference (Roman Catholic), and Ordain Women Now (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod). We believe that religion can liberate rather than subjugate women. We want to ignite a conversation about maintaining what we value in our religious traditions while transforming them into more inclusive, equitable and welcoming communities.
