Our next meeting about the Religion & VAWG scale will be on June 27, 2023, 9-10:30 EDT.
The connections between faith, gender equality and violence against women and girls are increasingly discussed in academic, practitioner and faith spaces. We are seeking to build a consortium committed to develop and validate a Religion & VAWG scale, to be of particular use in the development of interventions, as well as the evaluation of interventions. JLI, SVRI, Side by Side, WVI and URDR Stellenbosch University have already expressed interest in the development of this scale. The vision is a scale that will be usable in different contexts, with different religions, relevant to MEAL frameworks, general VAWG or SGBV studies and to allow for comparable data and synthesis of learning.
This virtual meeting has a number of goals:
- To update you on the emerging research findings (of the preparation phase, which is a 6-month period running until November), funded with the support of World Vision International
- To share the criteria for formally joining the Consortium that will support the scale development phase
- Discuss preliminary plans for the scale development phase
- Discuss funding options
Please feel free to share this event with whomever you think will be interested.
