children’s class

Equality workshops assist participants to identify and implement effective strategies for promoting equality in our communities and in the world at large. These strategies include exploring the meaning of equality and the necessity for cooperation and mutual support among women and men, fostering equality in marriage and in Bahá’í community life, raising children to live out the principle of equality, and teaching this principle to others.

Through each of the four modules, learners practice active, practical steps to promote gender equality in the home, the Bahá’í community, and in every field of human endeavor.
