Ecumenical Women believes that justice is at the core of our faith. Being rooted in different Christian traditions sets us apart from other coalitions and non-profits working for gender equality. We seek to be a strong Christian voice speaking for the advancement of women in the world, simultaneously working against the structures of gender discrimination while also working against and naming the prejudices that exist within our own faith institutions. EW is a coalition seeking to have one foot in the “church” and one in the “world,” constantly straddling the borders between advocacy and theology.
To help women and men working for gender equality, Ecumenical Women wants to provide recources that can easily be used in different contexts inside and outside the church.
Worship and Liturgy - liturgies, prayers, litanies, bible studies, and academic articles that one may use within their own worship services, which honor and uphold gender equality, social justice, and peace as a part of God’s world.
- Background Papers- read theological and academic articles and researches on topics relating to faith, feminism and human rights.
- Toolkits – guides to conduct classes, seminars etc.
