Pan African Women of Faith (PAW) Pan African Women’s Ecumenical Empowerment Network (PAWEEN) seeks to serve as a platform of academic study, spiritual reflection and advocacy action with and for African women and women of African descent in all regions of the world.
Why and How We MATTER PAN AFRICAN WOMEN OF FAITH
Since the earliest Biblical accounts in Genesis, women of African descent have played a critical role in shaping the Judeo-Christian faith. From Biblical women such as Hagar and Zipporah to the modern ecumenical movement Pan African women have and continue to be a pivotal presence in the churches and their communities.
Therefore, PAW/PAWEEN aims to gather and make visible how the stories of Pan African women, too often neglected in ecumenical and church history, can positively inform and nurture female leadership capacity development now and in the future.
