Home |  News | IWD: Christian Aid to showcase Side by Side movement at Scottish Parliament event

Christian Aid will mark International Women’s Day on 8 March with an event at the Scottish Parliament showcasing the work of  the international Side by Side movement for gender justice.

The event will also host the exhibition, ‘Faith in Gender Justice’, which tells the stories of 16 inspirational women of faith who are working to challenge gender inequality both here and around the world.

Kathy Galloway, chair of Side by Side Scotland said:

“We are delighted to be celebrating International Women’s Day by sharing the stories of inspirational women who have worked tirelessly, often under very difficult circumstances, to challenge some of the narratives around gender that prevent equal access to rights, resources and power. We hope that our work raises awareness of the importance of decision makers and faith organisations working together to create gender equality, and our vision is that Side by Side as a movement can be a valuable tool for this happening in Scotland”.
