CIDSE Highlights No.41, May - June 2019
We are seeing changes in many spheres, with women finally reaching the top positions of more and more structures and organisations, but still we notice, because it is not yet the norm, and we know that the road was surely full of challenges or there would be many more. At CIDSE, the face of our leadership has changed in just a few years. Perhaps this is even more remarkable because, as a Catholic development and social justice network, women are traditionally present from the grassroots all the way through the very fibre of our organisations, but rarely are they the leaders. Despite their experience, their knowledge, their years of invaluable contribution to development work and to their service to the Church, many women are still overlooked, undervalued, or underestimated.

A toolkit for the Catholic community to promote gender equality, by CAFOD, March 2018
When I started working as the first dedicated Gender Advisor at CAFOD nine years ago I wondered what it would be like - working on the promotion of gender equality and women’s rights in a Catholic organisation. Well, I can tell you this - it wasn’t always easy. The term ‘gender’ was then and continues to be now a hot potato, sparking heated debates in every gender training I had delivered over these years, both in Europe and in the many countries CAFOD’s partner organisations work in.
Tanja Haque, CAFOD's Gender Advisor, discusses the role of faith at the 61st session of the Commission on the Status of Women.
On the occasion of the 60th session of the Commission on the Status of Women at the UN, some of our member organizations were present and share with us their perspectives and thoughts on this event.
Every month partners, members, staff and inspiring thinkers will share their thoughts on gender equality, drawing on their experiences and struggles. The first blog entry will appear on the 8th of March on the occasion of International Women’s Day. Your feedback is welcome and can be sent to pavarotti(at)cidse.org
