The Women's Task Force hosted it's first monthly teleconference call yesterday on the topic of Religion, Culture and Violence Against Women. We had a rich discussion with more than 30 women on the call from across the U.S.
And the conversation continues.
Our sister organization Women of Spirit and Faith will explore this same topic on their collaborative blog, the Divine Feminine Blog, during February and March. The Divine Feminine is hosted on Patheos.com, a progressive inter-spiritual media platform which attracts more than 1 million unique visitors each month.
Women from many faiths and spiritual persuasions are invited to respond to the following prompt: "How do we create a world in which women and girls are safe from violence?" If this question speaks to you, we encourage you to go deep within to explore this question for yourself. Find your own wisdom, then write what comes up and send it, with a photo of yourself and a one sentence bio. Please limit your post to 300-800 words and send to firstname.lastname@example.org .
This is an excellent way to assure that your voice is hear at the vital nexus of women's issues, religion and spiritual leadership.
