FAHR SISTERS DEMAND VOTES FOR CATHOLIC WOMEN!

Voices of Faith is excited to be bringing the sisters from Fahr Monastery by bus to Rome from Switzerland for our October 3rd event and press conference demanding for gender equality and voting rights of women religious at the Synod on Amazonia. Photos of the sisters last year went viral as part of the #votesforcatholicwomen initiative.

Join the movement and support these sisters by writing a message to our Church leaders telling them why women religious deserve a right to vote!
