The L.O.V.E.[1]  Task Force on Non-Violent Living is pleased to announce that it will present a parallel event during the 57th United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (UNCSW57), scheduled for March 6, 2013 at 7 PM, at the Church of the Holy Trinity. In keeping with UNCSW57’s priority theme: elimination and prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls, this international panel discussion tackles the problem of violence against women that continues its malignant growth worldwide.



The panel’s moderator will be Ms. Kate Gilmore, United Nations Assistant Secretary-General and Deputy Executive Director (Programme) of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The featured panelists are Ms. Vijula Arulanantham, attorney at law, chair of the Reconciliation and Peace Desk of the Anglican Church, Sri Lanka; Ms. Sarah Eagle Heart, Missioner, Indigenous Ministries of the Episcopal Church, and member of the Oglala (Lakota) Sioux Tribe; Mr. Todd Minerson, Executive Director of the White Ribbon Campaign; Mrs. Harriett Baka Nathan, member of the Anglican Consultative Council, representing the Province of Sudan; Ms. Ilcélia Alves Soares, consultant on domestic violence and AIDS-HIV activist, Brazil; and Mrs. Albertina Tawonezvi, president, Mothers’ Union, Diocese of Masivingo, Zimbabwe.


Dr. Pam Rajput, world renowned women’s rights advocate from India, will offer her views on the question, Can we stop looking away?  Dr. Rajput has often observed that "We are as much abettors of violence if we look away and keep silent."


"Faith-based and other cultural leaders have critical roles to play in combating violenceagainst women and girls. As cultural ‘custodians’ of beliefs, attitudes and values, they influence society, shaping our assumptions, norms and expectations,” said Ms. Gilmore. She added, “In countries around the world,  UNFPA acts in fruitful partnership with faith- based and other civil society organizations that are working to ensure that no aspect of culture is used to justify violations of women's and girl's human  rights. But, much more must be done if we are to counteract those who, in the name of tradition, culture or religion, defend violence against women and girls.


“The panel is an invaluable opportunity to explore these important issues, to consider together what we have already learned, and to identify how we might work more effectively with the strengths of cultural – including faith-based – networks to bring about an end to violence against women."


This panel is part of the L.O.V.E. series, “Non-violent Living: Made in the Image of God,” which covers the myriad forms of interpersonal violence and prejudice and oppression, especially violence against women and children world-wide. We seek to promote a gentle and mutual sharing of our Creator’s call in non-violent actions for life in abundance while providing justice and inclusion for all.


The L.O.V.E. Task Force on Non-Violent Living, founded by Dr. Victoria J. Rollins, reaches across religious and secular dimensions towards an embracing, interdisciplinary community approach to ending all forms of interpersonal violence. 


The Church of the Holy Trinity is a dynamic neighborhood Episcopal parish in the City of New York.  It is a parish community that embraces all people, across the spectrum of cultural, ethnic, racial, gender, sexual orientation, and class diversity, as full members of the household of God.
