Interreligious Activities and Initiatives

Hindu Women in the Eyes of Balinese Customary Law (past, present and future)
This activity lasted for 2 (two) days, namely on 11 and 12 December 2020 at STAH DNJ. This activity involved 25 students (13 female and 12 male) and invited several resource persons. Before the activity started, participants were given a form to comment on the gender and position of men and women. In addition, the participants were also very active in exploring questions in each discussion session. The invited speakers also used sharing and discussion methods and gave some quizzes for the participants to answer. In this workshop, we also made a video about their views on gender, tolerance and how religion views gender and tolerance. This activity was able to provide participants with a deep understanding of what gender is and how to ensure that women and men have the same position in all matters and can achieve their desired goals. After the event ended, the participants were given a form to tell how much knowledge they got from this gender workshop.
