Young Women of Faith and Transformative Leadership in COVID-19 Response

August 3, 2020

Young women of faith play important but often unacknowledged leadership roles in the religious response to COVID-19. In the global coronavirus response, women are drawing on faith-inspired values as they engage in humanitarian work on the frontlines and serve as health workers. Yet, young feminist women of faith remain a largely unnoticed and untapped constituency in the pandemic.

This event summary highlights contributions to a June 30, 2020 Berkley Center webinar on “Young Women of Faith and Transformative Leadership in COVID-19 Response,” drawing on the insights of an intergenerational group of female leaders of faith. The goal is to share their stories and to sustain female leadership beyond the pandemic.
