Who says you can't be religious and feminist?
Women from different faith traditions involved in leading the Faith and Feminism session at the Women of the World Festival 2017 were caught on camera later that evening and talked about their faith and the importance of valuing women and men equally.
Thanks to WOW, to Amal, to Near Neighbours, to the brilliant women who led the six workshops and to everyone who participated in the session!
