International Women's Day takes place this Wednesday, 8 March. To mark the day - the fourth annual Voices of Faith event takes place in the Vatican. The initiative was started by Catholic philanthropist Chantal Goetz, "to enhance the dignity, participation and leadership of women and girls through persistent and good storytelling." Voices of Faith is supported by the Fidel Goetz Foundation, Caritas and the Jesuit Refugee Service.
At this year's event women from all over the world are making their voices heard in the name of peace with the gathering itself entitled, "Stirring the waters: Making the impossible possible."
One of the participants will be Dr Scilla Elworthy, founder of the Oxford Research Group, and co- founder of Peace Direct, UK. She is also the author of "Pioneering the possible: Awakened leadership for a world that works." read more here
Voices of Faith will be live-streamed from the Vatican from 2-5pm
