Papers from the Women's Interfaith Conference

This is a compilation of selected presentations by several speakers at the Annual Sufi Women Organization Women's Interfaith Conference on the general topic of Ethics and Values. It is a most important contribution to women and all humanity because it brings together women of different faith traditions whose work reflects a united vision of ethics and values. As Dr. Nahid Angha writes: " A human being is the essence of societies, cultures and nations and each one is the foundation of a civilization. Every human being is a universe and every woman is a teacher of that universe. She is the one who holds the key to a just or corrupt society, as she is the first teacher of any leader." These women writers express their faith and belief in ethics and values that serve to unite humanity.
