Women everywhere continue to experience discrimination in everyday life: in institutions, the private sector, religious organizations, families, schools, health systems, and justice systems. Gender bias is everywhere.
The stereotypes that women face are powerful and make every aspect of their lives difficult. This is a consequence of a patriarchal system that abuses power in all ways from hiring decisions to sexual abuse. Discrimination can be subtle or overt, conscious or unconscious, and can be upheld by both men and women.
The final video call of our Women series will be a dharma sharing format, and will allow you to share your feelings, thoughts, impressions, etc., about the inequalities and injustices of gender bias and need to empower women. Even if you did not attend the previous webinars, you are welcome to join the discussion. All are invited to bring up issues from the previous calls, and / or from our own experiences, to spark conversations and discussions.
