Mothers Union Update

There was a good turnout for our Easter meeting on 14 March. We were delighted to welcome Val Nellist who spoke about a new initiative Side by Side. This is an international movement for gender justice. The Scottish Parliament recently hosted an exhibition, Faith in Gender Justice, which tells the stories of 16 inspirational women of faith who are working to challenge gender inequality both here and around the world. Please look up Side by Side on the Christian Aid Website and take the opportunity to read some of their excellent publications. For example Reveal resources on gender from Tearfund Reveal is a collection of tools put together by Tearfund for people working directly with local communities or churches.
