Bahá’í Women’s Association

Bahá’í office for the advancement of women in Switzerland:

The acceptance of the equality of the sexes is seen by the founder of the Bahá’í Faith, Bahá’u’lláh, as a prerequisite for the establishment of world peace. The Bahá’í Women’s Association of Switzerland, as a member of the Swiss Federation of Women’s Organisations (BSF), hosts gatherings at the local level, organises conferences at the national level and is on the whole committed to promoting the advancement of women in Swiss society and to contribute to the bringing about of full equality. Around half of the membership of the national governing body of the Swiss Bahá’í community consists of women.
