Women’s Networks and Leadership

Since 2001, the Pluralism Project has convened a series of multi-religious consultations with women leaders, activists, and academics. In giving voice to women who are developing new forms of civic and religious leadership, these events have provided a much-needed forum where participants have forged new linkages and identified common ground. While forming the basis for the Pluralism Project’s women’s networks initiative, these consultations have been accompanied by focused research, local convenings, and a documentary film called Acting on Faith: Women’s New Religious Activism in America. In the ongoing work with this initiative, the networks will be expanded to include strategic partnerships with secular women’s organizations.

Below are profiles of many of the organizations that have been active in our women’s networks.
