April 22, 2015 | Rapid modernization takes various forms in the different societies of Southeast Asia, not least in the nature and pace of changing gender roles. Religious institutions react differently to these changes, with some deliberately supporting equal rights for men and women, others calling modern “feminisms” into question. The topic generates fierce debate, often with religious overtones.

This panel discussion aims to generate a frank conversation of contemporary tensions, opportunities, progress and setbacks involving gender relations, focusing on religion’s role in the matter. The Berkley Center’s Katherine Marshall will moderate a panel including Siti Syamsiyatun (Indonesia), Farina So (Cambodia), Eleanor Dionisio (Philippines), Juliane Schober, Nancy Smith-Hefner, and Bernie Adeney-Risakotta.
