Feminist theology questions the role of women across several religions. Should traditions, practices and scriptures be reconsidered and re-valued from the female perspective? Should male-dominated imagery and language about God still determine women’s place amongst their fellow believers?
Rev Fiona Bennett, United Reform Church; Lesley Orr, University of Edinburgh; and Prof Ravinder Kaur, University of Copenhagen, will talk about a redefined role of women in religion.

The Festival of Spirituality and Peace
Our aim is to encourage community by exploring diversity. We don't all have to agree but it doesn't need to be a problem. FoSP provides a platform for people to explore their own spirituality by engaging with other people's, to promote peace.
FoSP is one of Edinburgh's most exciting and diverse Festivals. It features 300 activities in 200 events across 15 venues each year in August. With top-quality speakers, conversations, performances, film, food, exhibitions, family activities, workshops, art, culture and more the festival is now looking forward to its twelfth year.
