Religious law and religious influence over legislation impact the fulfilment of women´s rights including sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). The seminar will focus on strategic practices and possible ways of collaboration that can advance women´s rights in a religious world and in a context of growing conservatism and roll-back on human rights. It will show that the involvement of, and engagement with, religious actors is imperative for the advancement of women´s rights including SRHR.
