The world’s major faith traditions – each in its own way – uphold the inviolable dignity of the human being as rooted in the Sacred. While respecting religious differences, the Restoring Dignity draws on the commitment and resources of faith congregations, institutions, communities and individual believers to bring an end to violence against women and girls. Join us to end violence and restore dignity of women.
Religions for Peace Global Women of Faith Network consists of more than 1000 religious women’s organizations who pool resources and achieve results beyond what they could each accomplish alone through regional networks on five continents: Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, and North America, and national networks in 30 countries.
Join Religious Youth say ‘No’ to Violence Against Women by signing a pledge to end violence against women and girls.
“ Religions recognize the fundamental dignity of every woman and man. We know that the true dignity of every woman is given by and rooted in the Sacred. This dignity is inviolable. It is not given by cultures, states, societies, communities or individuals. It cannot be taken away by them. But the recognition of this dignity must be “restored” whenever it is violated. It must be actively respected, honored and protected."
Violence against women causes horrific physical, psychological and spiritual suffering and too often, it kills. Sex trafficking, rape, sexual harassment, and domestic violence are some forms of violence impacting women in all their roles, including as mothers. Violence against women damages families, communities, and ultimately all of us.
