World Interfaith Harmony Week

WORLD INTERFAITH HARMONY WEEK
The Role of Interfaith Dialogue in Peace building & Women Empowerment
February 12, 2013 / Tuesday / 3-6pm at UN

The World Interfaith Harmony Week adopted the United Nations General Assembly’s resolution 65/5 aims to promote a culture of peace and non-violence through inter-religious and intercultural understanding, harmony and cooperation; there hence, supports elimination of all forms of intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief.

The international faith communities recognize the imperative need for raising awareness on empowering women by providing educational opportunities, especially for girls; collaboration on the implementation of sustainable educational programs; sharing best practices and supporting successful global initiatives throughout the world.

Religions and beliefs play an essential role in understanding the status of women and girls education according to different faith communities across the globe. The panel aims to raise awareness on empowering women and discuss multiple perspectives, implications and misconceptions on girls’ education based on religions, traditions, and customs.

Are the sources of gender inequality in life derived from social customs and traditions or do religions condone and strengthen this inequality? Does gender inequality stem from the foundational principals of the religions or life practices, which reflects the culture and traditions throughout the world?

Facts:
Gender disparity in educational opportunities
Girls’ education remain elusive in less privileged regions of the world
Understanding of faith traditions as a major barrier to education
Dilemma: Violence &  Peace justified in the name of Religion or God
Under-representation of women in governance and politics

Goals:
Empowerment tools in reaching out to less privileged women/girls
Advocate for Women/Girls’ rights in various communities and governments
Collaborate with Interfaith NGOs, international communities and governments
Support innovation and encourage new ideas that empower women’s
educational, social, economic and political status to become more creative, and self-sufficient.

Outcome:

The panel will raise awareness on empowering women by providing educational opportunities for girls; eventually, it will impact greatly on women’s education, social and economic status, and eliminate inequality in women representation in governance and politics. The organizing committee aims to influence international community and policy makers in implementation of the United Nations’ resolutions and UN MDGs worldwide. The panel also will echo voices of the interfaith community in developing original perspectives on the topic, generating solutions to the problems, and supporting successful practices in less privileged parts of the world.
