What is Patriarchy?

The video on the left is produced by the Virtual Interfaith Peacemaker Team on Patriarchy for the Parliament of the World's Religions. With the recognition that religious communities have legitimized and perpetuated patriarchy for centuries, the participants seek ways to redefine how we understand ancient traditions in a new way. They conclude that one of the main ways to change this attitude is to create opportunities for, and access to women to become the interpreters of the tradition and exegetes of the scriptures.
The Patriarchy Virtual IP Teams is also addressing seeking to support the local IP Teams that are addressing devastating effects of Patriarchy in their contexts. Please see our Impact page for more stories.
