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.

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

"Meet Matilda Joslyn Gage"

A free presentation by a nationally recognized lecturer, pioneer feminist, author, and noted women's studies professor will be given Saturday, March 28, at the St. Petersburg U-U Church at Mirror Lake.  Gage, as important as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton,  was recognized in her day as part of the suffrage leadership 'triumvirate.'  Nearly written out of history after her death in 1898 for her radical views, Gage remains amazingly relevant and inspirational today.

Doors open @ 1:30 p.m.
Presentation @ 2:00 p.m.
