Welcome! The Women and Religion Movement is alive and well in the 21st Century. A grassroots project started by lay leaders in the 1970s as an effort to promote examination of religious roots of sexism and patriarchy within the UUA and beyond, UU Women and Religion officially began as a task force following the unanimously-passed WOMEN AND RELIGION RESOLUTION at the 1977 UUA General Assembly. Although the Task Force was eventually sunsetted, the movement still exists in UU communities that hold Women & Religion programs and gatherings for those who identify as women. It exists at the UU General Assembly, where UUW&R brings our Store to the Exhibit Hall and occasionally hosts a gahering. And it lives in the hearts and lives of people who have been touched by the many changes inspired by this movement.

"We do not want a piece of the pie. It is still a patriarchal pie. We want to change the recipe!" -- Rosemary Matson

By Rev. Joanne Giannino. A six-session spiritual journey for pre-teen girls and their mothers

Meetings at the Moon is an opportunity for mothers and daughters to hear and tell sacred stories, create sacred artifacts, sing and dance together and to share a new relatedness based on our developing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual selves.

Rev. Joanne Giannino is a Unitarian Universalist minister who has served congregations in Massachusetts, Illinois, Vermont and Arizona. Inspired by the class Cakes for the Queen of Heaven, she wrote Meetings at the Moon while serving as Director of Religious Education at the First Parish Bridgewater, UU in Bridgewater, MA.
