Today is International Women’s Day! Celebrated for over 100 years, this honorary day spotlights achievements of women around the world and recognizes our ongoing need for political, economic and social equality.
Please join in me in honoring women worldwide by reading and sharing two of Tanenbaum’s Combating Extremism resources that highlight the bravery, power and value of women across traditions:
- Women Who Pursue Peace and Justice: A resource sheet on the efforts of courageous, religiously-driven women in armed conflicts and in programs Combating Violent Extremism.
- Shared Visions: On Women: A reflection for the #MeToo movement—on how diverse faiths inspire respect for women.
One of the mantras Tanenbaum lives by, is Peace is Possible. Today we add, Equality is Possible!

P.S. I encourage you to take one step further by sharing our resources on social media, using the hashtag #IWD2018, and by following and retweeting @JoyceDubensky and @TanenbaumCenter to make an even wider impact!
