Bafana Khumalo questions religions’ influence over culture as part of our Women’s Health, Masculinities and Empowerment short course

Guest instructor, Bafana Khumalo, Co-Founder and Senior Programmes Specialist at Sonke Gender Justice facilitates a session on LGBTIs, Culture and Religion at the Women’s Health, Masculinities and Empowerment: Advocacy and Training course.

The session touched on how faith communities from diverse religions should explore questions such as: How can diverse religions be part of gender transformation? What role can faith leaders play in the protection of women’s and sexual minority rights? Is the use of religious texts to suppress a number of human rights truly in line with religious doctrine?
