Gender Equality in CIDSE Leadership

Wednesday, 03 July 2019 16:09

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 Lent Campaign to Celebrate Women

Wednesday, 24 April 2019 14:03

The labor and courage of women is central to their communities and rural economies, and by extension, to the global economy. However, they are underrepresented at all decision-making levels, especially when it comes to participation and co-determination in managing resources. In tribute to the exemplary commitment of women to themselves, their families and their communities, the Swiss Ecumenical Campaign 2019 focused this year on women's rights.

Amandla Awethu! – or power to the people in Zulu – all the people

Monday, 18 February 2019 08:27

An encounter that brings the whole world together always represents an opportunity. But a gathering where men and women from all points of the compass come together to explain, share and raise awareness of their fight to defend our Common Home should be one that is accessible to everyone defending our planet’s environment.

The protest was marred with violence and repression by the police leading to reports of loss of lives and several others injured. Bangladesh’s USD$30 billion clothing industry is the world’s second largest apparel manufacturer, just behind China. The sector employs approximately 3.5 million workers and of these, 85 percent are women.
