Joan Chittister will participate in a web-based panel conversation in honor of International Women's Day sponsored by the Carter Center on Thursday, March 5 from noon to 1 p.m. The topic discussed will be "Religion, Gender, Justice, & Equality: Faith Leaders Reflect on the Promise of the Equal Rights Amendment. "
Sister Joan will join two other eminent faith leaders, Rev. Dr. Serene Jones (President of Union Theological Seminary, member of the board of the ERA coalition) and Rev. Traci C. West (Associate Professor of Ethics and African American Studies at Drew University Theological School) to discuss the significance of the ERA from the perspective of their scholarship, religious convictions, and experiences in ministry and public life. Allyson Timm, executive director of Justice Revival, will moderate the conversation.
The link for the live-streamed event will be available next week. On the eve of International Women’s Day, join us for this vital conversation on women’s rights. The event will also be recorded and available on the Carter Center website after the event. https://www.cartercenter.org/
