Cries of Anguish, Stories of Hope

C44f24e74c During Lent, a series of study resources will help congregations and individuals work to end violence against women.

Featuring films and stories from places as diverse as Colombia, India, the Democratic Republic of Congo and New Zealand, the WCC Decade to Overcome Violence Web page will host the interactive resources from 17 February until 4 April 2010.

Church congregations, community groups and individuals will be invited to sign up to follow the bible studies, use the liturgical resources and become involved in online discussions to advance the cause of ending violence against women. The resources will be available as a downloadable toolkit.

The campaign is a partnership of the World Council of Churches, the World Student Christian Federation and the World Young Women's Christian Association.

A sample of "Cries of Anguish, Stories of Hope" is available.
