In honor of Women's Equality Day, Berkley Forum asks, what unique challenges do women face in seeking leadership roles within religious traditions where that has not historically been an option? How does the legal fight for equality help or hinder efforts to change religiously inspired norms and expectations? How do advocates for women's religious leadership balance a commitment to equality with the need to avoid imposing Western frameworks and standards on religious traditions embodied in other cultures? What role do higher education institutions have in promoting women's equality and helping their female students explore leadership opportunities, both secular and religious?
