The Anglican Communion is standing together with religious leaders and faith-based actors around the world to advocate to governments and civil society, for urgent responses that protect women’s rights and achieve gender equality.The crisis does not operate in a vacuum and, as a result, the pandemic is increasing pre-existing gender inequalities. Around the world, gender roles have a marked impact on exposure, transmission, and outcome patterns of COVID-19. Women and girls are experiencing intersecting injustices in political, social and economic spheres.Sexual and Gender Based ViolenceIn the statement published today, Faith in Beijing, who are a collective of religious actors and faith-based networks, call for COVID-19 responses to include strategies to address and prevent Sexual and Gender Based Violence. Under lockdown policies, many women are forced to stay at homes where they are not safe or secure. They are forced to live with abusive partners or parents, while services to survivors of gender-based violence are harder to access. In some communities around the world, violence against women during the pandemic has been perpetrated by the security agencies enforcing the lockdown, using undue force.Faith on the FrontlineFaith communities have a strong base from which to promote social distancing (to reduce transmission of the virus causing COVID-19), while also practicing solidarity. Many religious actors hold significant power and trust, sometimes more than the government. Thus, religious institutions can play a vital role in distributing accurate key public health information to their communities. Religious leaders can play a positive role in promoting messages of gender justice, challenging stigma and harmful gender norms.Equality and Justice for AllAs business as usual is paused, we have an opportunity to reflect upon the brokenness in our world and our economic system. In these spaces, we can begin to imagine a world rooted in equality and justice for all. The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed how globally interconnected we are and how gender injustice reveals itself at an individual and a collective level.An international delegation representing the Anglican Communion as well as Mandy Marshall, the new Director for Gender Justice at the Anglican Communion Office, was due to participate in the UN Commission on the Status of Women 64 along with other Faith in Beijing members. While the international gathering of UN Member States and civil society was postponed last month, our work for gender justice remains important, to ensure a just and sustainable future for all.You can read the statement on Gender, Faith and COVID-19 on the Gender Justice page of the Anglican Communion website.

Ranking Pac-12 football coaches for 2019: USC’s Clay Helton slips to crowded middle

first_imgIs that fair? Helton did lead the Trojans to the Rose Bowl in 2017 and Cotton Bowl in 2018, and most of that was with the help of first-round pick Sam Darnold. With the right quarterback, Helton could be in business.MORE: Pac-12 2019 early conference primerThat said, USC cannot have the sixth-ranked coach in the conference and expect to compete for national championships. The rest of the field is improving too. Mel Tucker joins that group with his first year in Colorado.With that in mind, here is a look at our Pac-12 coach rankings:  2019 Pac-12 Coach Rankings  RankNameSchoolWLPCT.OVR1Chris PetersenWashington13933.80862David ShawStanford8226.759113Mike LeachWashington State13383.616174Kyle WhittinghamUtah12061.663215Chip KellyUCLA4916.754296Clay HeltonUSC3217.653317Mario CristobalOregon3652.409438Herm EdwardsArizona State76.538449Kevin SumlinArizona9150.6456010Justin WilcoxCal1213.4806411Jonathan SmithOregon State210.1677212Mel TuckerColorado00.00078MORE: SN’s post-spring preseason top 25Quick reads  — Washington’s Chris Petersen is the only top-10 coach in this year’s ranking. He has the highest winning percentage among coaches with at least 100 victories, at .808. Sporting News’ annual 1-130 coach rankings are here. Today, we’ll dig a little deeper into our Pac-12 coach rankings.  USC’s Clay Helton is the coach in focus after a 5-7 season knocked him out of the top 25 in our overall rankings. Helton has a remodeled coaching staff and a ton of pressure heading into the 2019 season. — Chip Kelly had a 10-spot drop in the overall rankings after a 3-9 record in his first season at UCLA. Kelly still has coached in a national championship game this decade. He could easily jump back up.— David Shaw and Mike Leach also have winning percentages of better than .700 over the last three seasons. The Cardinal won the conference championship in 2015. Leach is still looking for that breakthrough with the Cougars.— Among returning coaches, Arizona State’s Herm Edwards jumped 43 spots from last year’s overall rankings for the biggest gain. Arizona’s Kevin Sumlin had a 22-spot fall for the biggest drop.last_img read more
