In celebration of Women’s History Month in March, the Louisville Free Public Library and the Salaam Network invite the public to a special interfaith forum to examine the theological, historical, and cultural factors used to define women in today’s world. Women in Four Traditions: Journey Toward Wholeness is a free forum featuring four female religious leaders at the Main Library on Thursday, March 8th at 6 p.m. Join Dr. Riffat Hassan (Islam), Sister Mary Huber (Christianity), Dr. Marcia Segal (Judaism), and Rev. C.J. Wright (Native American tradition) as they identify some of the greatest challenges women face in their respective religious traditions and explore how positive teachings can be used to overcome challenges due to societal injustice and oppression. This forum is a platform of hope and empowerment for all women. To register, simply call (502) 574-1623.
In addition to this interfaith forum, The Salaam Network is also facilitating discussions around women’s issues in the Islamic faith and Islamic calligraphy at the Jeffersontown, Bon Air, Iroquois, Highlands-Shelby Park, and Crescent Hill libraries. Please check LFPL.org/events for dates and times. The Salaam Network is an interfaith group committed to building bridges of understanding from knowledge.
