Vasu Mohan, “Five Revolutionary Teachings on Gender Equality in the Bahá’í Faith”

On March 19 Dr. Vasu Mohan, who works in India, gave a Web Talk on “Five Revolutionary Teachings on Gender Equality in the Bahá’í Faith.” His talk explored five unique teachings in the Bahá’í Faith on the equality of women and men that are extraordinarily powerful and critical to addressing global challenges. “Whether you are a long-time Bahá’í, a new believer, or just curious about the Bahá’í Faith,” Dr. Mohan said, “you will find these less-discussed facets of the Bahá’í teachings absolutely fascinating and even life changing.”
