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 Districts that hold Women & Religion programs and woman-focused gatherings. It exists at General Assembly, where UUW&R has an annual gathering and a booth in the display area. And it lives in the hearts and lives of women and men 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

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.
