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.

International Convocation of UU Women, Feb 26 - Mar 1, 2009

LOCALIZING THE U.N. MILLENNIUM GOALS TO ERADICATE SEVERE POVERTY THROUGH ACTIVISM BY PROGRESSIVE WOMEN OF FAITH!

Our theme for this section of WOMUUNWEB has been inspired by the work of Unitarian Universalist women to organize the first-ever official international gathering of U*U women and women of progressive religious outlooks. The gathering, called the International Convocation of UU Women, ICUUW, will happen in Houston, Texas, in February 2009 (2/26 – 3/1).
