Kiran Bali - Human Rights Day

Faith 2 Faith Cooperation Circle held an event to reflect on women's rights on Human Rights Day.

This event celebrated the adoption, almost 70 years ago, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which recognises that human rights are relevant to all. It advocates for a shared humanity rooted in these universal values.

"Women’s rights are more prominent and widely championed today, but unfortunately are increasingly violated."

URI Chairperson Kiran Bali, MBE JP, described the event: "Women of different faiths from around Huddersfield united in solidarity to voice their pressing concerns facing women today, and advocated for specific action to change attitudes. The event celebrated the courageous advocacy and activism of women to catalyse women's empowerment and stressed the need to eliminate discriminatory cultural norms, values and practices. Women’s rights are more prominent and widely championed today, but unfortunately are increasingly violated."
