Transforming Patriarchy in Religion: The Promise of Gender Equity and Reconciliation
The gender equity and reconciliation process has applied principles of truth and reconciliation to transform gender injustice between women and men in nine countries over 25 years. Results are highly promising, including within religious institutions. This workshop will introduce Gender Equity and Reconciliation (including methodology and key outcomes), provide brief field reports and personal experiences from different cultures and religious contexts, and host an experiential group exercise: cross-gender witnessing, interactive small groups, deep listening, and a healing reconciliation ceremony.
