In a world where women's issues are political issues and one is forced to take sides, there is continuous debate about one's ability to identify as both feminist and religious simultaneously.  However, more and more often, religion is what fuels women's efforts to revolutionize the world.  Women are drawing on the overarching messages of love and social justice expressed within their religions and are leading feminist movements that promote positive social change – not only within their own traditions but within the broader world as well. This panel will explore the many ways women across faith traditions are claiming space and voice - once denied - in creative ways and grounded within their traditions to become active agents of change.
