Faith at the UN, Gender in the Church: Ecumenical Women's Guide to Advocacy

January 1, 2008

The advocacy guide "Faith at the UN, Gender in the Church: Ecumenical Women's Guide to Advocacy" focuses on participation in the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, though it also includes advice for local and national efforts. Divided into four sections, the guide begins with a history of the sponsoring organization, Ecumenical Women. The following two sections then address advocacy strategies at the United Nations and within local churches and communities. The final section brings the struggle for gender equality across the world into theological perspective through essays from eight different authors.
