Host a Five Women Five Journeys Event!
Five Women Five Journeys: How Different Are We? is a unique panel discussion featuring five women of five different faith traditions telling their stories. They discuss how their childhood impacted their beliefs, challenges women face in their faith tradition, misunderstandings about their religion, and how connecting with members of different faiths has enriched their lives.
WISDOM presents Five Women, Five Journeys to dozens of schools, houses of worship and organizations each year. We would love to share it with your organization. Please contact Paula Drewek at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
