FoRB and Gender Equality: Positive Synergies
Approximately three-quarters of world population live in countries with high or very high restrictions or hostilities when it comes to freedom of religion or belief. This situation has consequences both for the majority and minority religious communities, setting religious freedoms issues at the center of social, cultural and political discourse.
The Symposium convened a meeting of female MPs in order to explore the potential synergies between the freedom of religion or belief and women’s rights and the role of female MPs in strengthening and promotion of both of these rights.
