City Circle: gender equality in the 21st century Circle is hosting a panel discussion on  Friday 20th March 6.45pm – 8.30pm at Abrar House, 45 Crawford Place, W1H 4LP on women in positions of leadership within Christianity and Islam.

“The role of women is one of the most challenging issues facing Christianity and Islam today. But why is the idea of women in positions of religious leadership so controversial?

Why aren’t more women breaking through the glass ceiling into positions of leadership?

Join us for a panel discussion as we explore questions of women’s representation, participation and leadership from the perspective of Islam and Christianity.”

Speakers include Revd Lucy Winkett, Khola Hasan and Shahin Ashraf MBE.
