The voices of women across the Anglican Communion bring firsthand perspectives on the intersections of faith, poverty, and health crises, among other deep challenges. The meeting earlier this year of the 49th session of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW) offered a unique opportunity for U.S. Anglicans -- all members of the Episcopal Church -- to listen and learn about these challenges.
A forum titled "Repairing the World: Anglican Women's Faith in Action" was held at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City.
In a series of interviews with Episcopal News Service, Anglican women brought news from their provinces and spoke about their commitment to issues of justice, peace and gender equity.
Video streams of the interviews and the forum can be found online at http://www.anglicanlistening.org.
Launched at Pentecost, the website will continue to expand with additional weekly postings under the title "The Episcopal Church: Listening and Learning as Anglicans."
