Rising Fundamentalisms and Women’s Rights
March 8, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CST
More than ever, recent gains in women’s rights are under threat, with justifications in the name of religion, culture, and tradition. The rise in fundamentalisms presents a global phenomenon in which religions and cultural norms work to legitimize rigid and totalitarian beliefs and practices, and to promote intolerance. With a problem like this that impacts women from all parts of the world – how can we sustainably respond to fundamentalisms that live and thrive in our own communities? Global Fund for Women President and CEO Musimbi Kanyoro explains how with the proper resources and global solidarity, women’s movements can effectively fight back.
