Rooted in Faith, Committed to Justice

Visionary Women is an inter-generational  program engaging issues at the intersection of religion, gender, and social justice concerns. Since 2016, 50-75 women per year have participated in this experiential dialogue and skill-building initiative. Sessions offer immersion in five religious settings and draw on peer to peer learning.  Visionary Women are encouraged to continue their interfaith learning, and collaboration and offer programs within their own communities.

We use an inclusive definition of 'woman' and welcome trans and genderqueer women.

Individuals in this program seek to:

  • Build relationships with a culturally, religiously, and ideologically diverse group of women

  • Feel empowered by learning and collaborating with emerging and seasoned female social justice advocates

  • Increase their religious literacy through visits to different faith communities in the Greater Philadelphia area

  • Develop a deeper understanding of their own personal identity/tradition

*Please note that each participant is placed in a small dialogue group of diverse participants which will meet at every session. Therefore, attendance is essential to ensure that small groups can form meaningful relationships and participate in dialogue.
