Global Women’s Project seeks to educate ourselves (as variously privileged people) about the global poverty, oppression and injustice that women suffer, and how our own overconsumption and misuse of resources directly contributes to their suffering.
Global Women’s Project invites all women to live in solidarity with women around the world seeking to empower women and girls in their own communities in living a life of dignity and respect.
GWP grew out of the Gathering of Church of the Brethren Women, held at Manchester College in July, 1978. Moved by a message delivered by Ruthann Knechel Johansen, “Giving Birth To A New World,” the conference participants agreed to create the project and to urge the Church of the Brethren General Board to implement the project as a denominational program, though independently funded. Until 1995, GWP had General Board support through Program for Women, World Ministries and Parish Ministries Commissions. Presently, GWP steering committee members share the implementation responsibilities of the program, with limited support from the General Board. In over 3 decades, more than 50 people have served on the steering committee. See a full list here.
