New global research conducted by Open Doors has revealed the shocking truth that millions of women are doubly vulnerable to persecution, targeted both because of their gender and because of their faith.
But what is even more shocking is that their suffering is invisible, that they are largely unseen and ignored by the world around them.
Open Doors’ vision is that every woman who is persecuted for her faith and gender is seen, valued and empowered to reach her God-given potential. That’s why we’ve launched the new See. Change. campaign, to restore the hope, dignity and identity of women who are doubly at risk of persecution because they follow Jesus.
Will you see these women – and change their reality?
Our commitment to empowering women to fulfil their God-given potential has led us to sign the Call to All Christians.
Going forwards, we’ll be looking at how we can more closely align our work with the ethos and intention of the Call, so that Christian women across the world are equipped to take up leadership positions in the church and within wider society.
Through the stories and portraits of seven courageous Nigerian women, discover how God is turning grief to joy for the women of the persecuted church. Pray, reflect and learn how you can support persecuted women with the Tears of Gold Church Resource, hold your own challenging and inspiring Tears of Gold exhibition and learn more about the seven inspiring ladies at the heart of it all.
