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 hope to be on the road again in October at UU Women's Connection retreat in Racine Wisconsin, and in February at SWUUWCon in Dallas/Ft Worth area. Covid safety protocols will impact our decisions on whether to attend.

A note about what you buy from UUW&R: Some creators have donated their works to the organization. Others still receive royalties based on sales. So buying anything from the UUW&R Store supports both UUWR's ability to keep these resources available, and supports the creators! You can also donate directly using the Donate form at the bottom of the page.

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to Geri Kennedy, who has recently re-joined the Continental UUWR core group! She's excited to help working on developing and funding upcoming online programs and more women's spirituality resources.


Continental Women & Religion is re-energized and eager to bring you more women inspiring and women honoring programs.  We can't do it alone though.  If you are interested in helping in any capacity, but especially with newsletter, fundraising, website, communications, virtual retreats and programs, or if you have ideas, please get in touch with Gretchen Ohmann, info@uuwr.org.
