Celebrating women in leadership positions

On 8th May 2014, an interfaith conference called “Celebrating Women in Leadership Position” was held at the House of Lords. It was organised jointly by Seyeda Fatima organisation and Christian-Muslim Forum.

The aim of the conference was to highlight the importance of women’s decisive roles besides that of a daughter, wife and mother.

Mehri Niknam was invited as the Jewish speaker. She spoke about Rebekah in the Hebrew Bible as a role model of a decisive woman who made major decisions, most unusual for the society in which she lived.
