Donna Brazile delivering the keynote address
This conference addressed major issues at the intersection of gender and social justice, and the role religious traditions play in understanding and advancing positions on these issues in the public arena, particularly in the United States in an election year. We live in an era of change and public contention over a host of issues relating to marriage, family, men’s and women’s participation in communities, workplaces, and politics. Because they involve understandings of justice and well-being for individuals and groups, gender-related social and political debates inevitably implicate moral and religious questions.
Offering a spectrum of informed, religious and interdisciplinary perspectives, the conference aimed to provide a forum for considering social justice and equality for men and women, and illuminating ways that gender-related beliefs and practices, which are often-religiously influenced, affect economic and social policy as well as female representation in government.
The keynote speaker was Donna Brazile, political commentator and Chair of the Democratic National Committee's Voting Rights Institute
