Metro New York District's UU Women's Association was very active, though they have either disbanded or don't have a website. Their last known webpage had this to say:


The Unitarian Universalist Women's Association (UUWA) was formed in 1964 by the union of the New York League of Women and the Association of Universalist Women of the New York Metropolitan District. In 1989, the UUWA agreed to provide leadership for the Metro NY District Women and Religion Committee. The Women and Religion Committee focuses on issues of feminist spirituality and encourages awareness of such issues within the district at large. The two groups operate jointly.


The Unitarian Universalist Women's Association exists to provide a support network beyond our congregations for the promotion of feminist values within the Metro New York District. We do this by:

  1. Acting as a central clearinghouse for UU women in the district
  2. Organizing opportunities for interconnection
  3. Providing feminist focus toward personal, political, and spiritual growth
  4. Providing safe space for women
  5. Nurturing, supporting, and inspiring women's work


We reach out to individual and groups through programs we sponsor that are responsive to current interests and needs.

Our Fall Renewal weekend includes a focused in-depth topic exploration at a comfortable conference center with beautiful natural surroundings. The Mid-Winter Annual Meeting offers UU women a one-day program of feminist interest. Special events are scheduled when the opportunity arises.

Look for information about our activities on the District Calendar.


We welcome women of all ages concerned with social action and personal growth and inspired by women realizing their potential and improving our world.

If you are a UU living in the New York Metropolitan District, you and your friends are invited to participate in our activities. You are also invited to our monthly Board meetings at 7pm in the Community Church Parish House, [address], on the first Monday of the month, October through June. We meet on the second Monday in September.

We subsist primarily on individual and group contributions and program registration fees. There are no dues, but your generous support in the form of contributions helps cover costs.

The suggested yearly contribution for individuals is $10, and for groups is $3 per member. Larger donations help to provide more services.

Women and Religion Committee

The Women and Religion Committee was established following adoption of a resolution at General Assembly in 1977 that requested, in part, that the UUA “. . .(a) join with those who are encouraging others in the society to examine the relationship between religious and cultural attitudes toward women, and (b) send a representative and resource materials to associations appropriate to furthering the above goals.” In cooperation with the Unitarian Universalist Women’s Association, the Women and Religion Committee offers special programs, workshops, retreats, and a support network for promoting feminist values.



You may make a donation to UU Women and Religion here. We are a 501(c)3 organization. Please select the quantity of $10 increments you would like to donate.
