7 Religious Women Explain How Their Faith Empowers Their Feminism

'People say to me, doesn't your faith oppress you?'

As part of our All Women Everywhere month, we asked seven women of faith whether their belief helps or hinders their feminism.

From battling stigma to fighting for their rights in the workplace, each woman explains, what has been at times, an “uncomfortable” journey to balance their faith with feminism.
