#WINwomen Project

On International Women’s Day 2021 we launched our year long #WINwomen project. The aim of this project was to celebrate inspirational women alive today who we think have created exceptional change within their community or in society as a whole. The project ran for a whole year until International Women’s Day 2022.  We are launching the first 10 names on the list with many more women added throughout the year with submissions from our members and friends! We are so excited to have build up a resource list of incredible women.

Faiths Against Domestic Abuse  campaign

Since Covid-19 restrictions were imposed in 2020, calls to Refuge, the UK’s largest domestic abuse charity, have increased overnight by 120%. Two women a week are killed by a current or former partner in England and Wales*. We believe it is exceptionally important that faith communities take a lead in acknowledging and responding to these shocking statistics.

In response to this crisis, Jeeves Rohilla for Faiths Forum for London (FFL) and Tara Corry for Women’s Interfaith Network and have created an award winning multi-faith domestic abuse awareness campaign, Faiths Against Domestic Abuse (FADA)

Domestic abuse is present in all areas of society, including within faith communities. We believe it is essential that we, as all-faith-and-none communities, continue to help victims and highlight the support networks available.

The FADA campaign has held multiple FADA online webinars & workshops with speakers including Nicole Jacobs, the Designate Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales. FADA also released a joint statement that features signatories from faith-based domestic abuse organisations across the UK. Click HERE to view national media coverage of the joint statement.

The campaign founded the first national Faiths Against Domestic Abuse week from the 23rd to 27th of November 2020. Partners on the campaign included Jewish Women’s Aid, The Sharan Project, The Faith and Belief Forum and Near Neighbours.You can read coverage of the campaign in The Jewish Chronicle HERE

In 2021 the Faiths Against Domestic Abuse Campaign was delighted to have won the London Faith and Belief Community Award.

‘Unexpected Connections’ for InterFaith Week 2020

This year has brought us all challenges, sadness and many difficulties. It has also, however, driven us to share and collaborate in new unexpected ways.

At WIN, we have found that through working with women for over 15 years, that the strongest interfaith relationships are often built on the surprising connections, similarities and shared experiences that we have with others. Even those from vastly different faith and cultural backgrounds can find connections over a shared love of food, a shared experience or cultural practise.

To mark 2019, an extraordinary year and a different kind of Interfaith Week, we focused on ‘Unexpected Connections’. We received poems, drawings, written accounts and stories from our members showing how their involvement in interfaith work had bought about enriching and surprising relationships with those they’d least expect.

 

“Through dialogue, understanding and respecting each other’s culture, religion and traditions, I have found many similarities and few differences. I have made many friends amongst my fellow WIN members and feel empowered to contribute to greater unity, peace and harmony within our diverse communities.” 

Dr Kapur, Gants Hill WIN
