On Sunday 5th March 2017 almost 200 Jewish and Muslim women from across the country gathered at the University of Westminster in London for the first ever Nisa-Nashim conference. The day included plenary sessions, panel discussions, workshops, yoga, singing and more all focussing on the theme of ‘Challenging the Narrative’. Reverend Rose Hudson-Wilkin was our key speaker, and we were lucky enough to have a fantastically talented group of Jewish and Muslim female speakers to run sessions throughout the day. We’re already excited about next year’s conference! See below for what some of the attendees thought about the day.
