On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, we, women of diverse faiths, beliefs, traditions and spiritualities, from different countries around the world, come together to speak out against violence in all forms, particularly against girls and women, who continue to suffer multiple forms, and disproportionately so. According to our partners the World Health Organisation, 1 in 3 women – around 736 million globally – experiences physical or sexual violence throughout her/their lifetime.
Religions for Peace (RfP) recognizes that women of faith in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) have a unique potential to build confidence and advance peace across the region.
Religions for Peace is the world’s largest and most representative multi-religious coalition dedicated to advancing common action among the world religious communities for peace. Religions for Peace works to transform violent conflict, advance human development, promote just and harmonious societies, and protect the earth. Here, Religions for Peace International celebrates Earth Day.
