Exploring women and religion
Should traditions, practices and scriptures be reconsidered and re-valued from the female perspective? Should male-dominated imagery and language about God still determine women’s place among their fellow believers? How can this happen in a way that does justice to religious belief and tradition?
These and other important questions will be discussed this morning by the Rev Fiona Bennett from the United Reformed Church; Dr Lesley Orr from the University of Edinburgh; and Ravinder Kaur Nijaar from the Religions for Peace European Women's Network.
Together they will consider a redefined role for women in relation to religion and belief.
Tuesday 21 August, 12.30pm - 1.30pm, St. Cuthbert’s Church off Lothian Road (Venue 122), Lindisfarne Room. This event is FREE.
