Religion and the WPS agenda: Harnessing the potential of religion to improve opportunities for women in the most fragile contexts
Religion and the WPS agenda are often considered within their silos, yet religion shapes the daily lives of the majority of the world’s population. Religion, religious actors and religious institutions offer viable pathways to access, legitimacy and ownership of the WPS agenda in local communities across the world.
This session aims to kick start the discussion around the positive and constructive role that religion can play in pursuing achievement of the WPS agenda. By bringing together faith-based and secular organizations working on the WPS agenda, we hope to build bridges that lead to positive action.
