Gender Equality Blog
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.
The reflection on gender equality in the Christian tradition – and in the case of the Catholic church – must have Jesus of Nazareth and his Christian project as a reference; in truth, it is a reference for all in the different dimensions of life, whether personal, communitarian, economic, political, etc. This avoids a debate founded on philosophical traditions, generally innocuous and a source of divisions.
Gender equality is not about women. It’s about women, men boys and girls, it’s about our shared humanity and creating fairer societies that recognise the right of each person to be treated with dignity.
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
