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 gathering. And it lives in the hearts and lives of people who have been touched by the many changes inspired by this movement.

I received a thank you note from Jendi Schroeder-Miller for the money Florida UUWR gave her. 
"i can not thank you enough for the contribution you helped to make toward Coralynn.  I was absolutely speechless when we received your gift.  Coralynn is growing and thriving thanks to your help!  With much love, Jendi"

Diana Fraser said that Jendi, who is 17 years old, is still walking to school at St. Pete College and taking care of the baby, the sister Jendi's mother had while in prison.  Diana said Jendi was so appreciative and in tears when she got our gift.

thanks to all of you,
Patty Callaghan
