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.
