Faith, Gender, and Development

As part of its multi-year survey of critical issues at the intersection of religion and development, the Berkley Center has held events and developed publications focused on faith, gender, and development. In May 2008 the Berkley Center sponsored a panel discussion premised on the idea that women play critically important roles in development that religion is vital for women and women for religion, that religion plays central roles in development processes, and that a thoughtful and purposeful exploration about the issues involved is long overdue. The meeting led to the publication of a report focused on how women observe, understand, and influence social change, outlining best practices, tensions, and gaps in understanding, and identifying major issues and debates.
