FAITH, WOMEN AND VIOLENCE INITIATIVE
Sacred texts are often used to justify demeaning and abuse of women and girls. Those same texts, and the teachings and practices they inspire, can also be used to uphold the sanctity of women and the Feminine.
The Bible, Women and Violence
with DR. AMY-JILL LEVINE
Amy-Jill Levine, PhD,
“ANY TIME the Bible gives rise to something that’s violent – that’s a misuse of the text!… To hold the Bible in one hand and to engage in violence with the other is both a sin and an obscenity. That should be pretty clear.”
The Real Story: The Holy Qur’an on Women, Violence and Peace
with EDINA LEKOVIC, Dr. LAILA AL-MARAYATI, MD, Dr. ASMA SAYEED, PhD
“The foundational principles of Islam that govern all relationships all the time are Mercy and Justice.”
This rich conversation among three leading Muslim women is heartfelt and eye-opening. Not to be missed.

Violence against women and girls will not end until men speak out, until they speak to their sons and to their grandsons and to their friends and to other men.
