The webcast is free of charge. If you submitted questions in advance last week, they will be answered as time allows.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights are bringing together religious leaders, human rights advocates and practitioners, and academics to discuss issues such as female genital cutting, human trafficking, and the normalization of violence, as they relate to particular regions and communities.
The forum is committed to making concrete gains in women’s rights, working within the context of religion and traditional belief structures.
Participants will represent more than 15 countries and over 35 faith-based organizations, universities, and religious bodies including Harvard and Princeton Universities, the Biblioteca Alexandria, the Musawah Global Movement for Equality andJustice in the Muslim Family, Sojourners, and the American Academy of Religion.
