“International and national efforts around gender equality and women’s empowerment have often involved multiple stakeholders and diverse proposals and initiatives. However, a missing key ingredient – and partnership modality – has been around faith and religious considerations. Integrating religious knowledge – and actors – now needs to be mainstreamed.” Dr Azza Karam, senior advisor on culture at the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).
