Launching the UK national Interfaith week, women of faith gathered to concretely address and challenge myths and stereotypes around their religious identity. Members of Faith 2 Faith CC joined the event which was held at the Baitul Tauheed Mosque in Huddersfield.
The conference encouraged religious understanding and inspired women to be part of the solution in tackling the challenges we face in society today.
Rashda Ahmad, regional outreach coordinator for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women's Association, said, "We are always thankful for the opportunity to meet people of other faiths and of no faith. This brings us closer together and fosters good relations between communities towards collective action."
