Women's Group

Our Mission

This group functions under its own guidelines in planning and presenting programs, but it is responsible to the Board of Trustees. It shall elect its own officers. (Bylaws 8.2 A.6). Women’s Group provides support for women in personal, spiritual and life transition issues, and sponsors educational and cultural programs to enrich women’s lives. We are actively engaged in the advancement of women’s issues, such as pay equity, reproductive freedom and the amendment for equal rights under the law. Women’s Group hopes to add its own dimension to the spiritual life of the church by its exploration of feminist theology in combination with our ministers. We have several social action events and fund raisers throughout the year and many social activities.

Every year, the UUCSR Women's Group compiles a handbook for their members.

Women’s Group invites you to join Women Talk Daytime Multiplatform Meeting facilitated by Sandra Frank on first and third Tuesdays of each month at noon. Please refer to the calendar for details.

The format is simple. On the first Tuesday of the month, attendees are invited to discuss current events by taking turns by “going around.” On the third Tuesday of the month, a specific topic previously chosen by the group guides the discussion to start. Besides talking, attendees listen, learn, and share information and their individual stories. In the process, participants bond with each other and have a lot of fun. You can meet in person in the Veatch House Conference Room or join in on the discussion in your home via Zoom.

We would have every arbitrary barrier thrown down. We would have every path laid open to Woman as freely as to Man. Were this done…we believe the divine energy would pervade nature to a degree unknown in the history of former ages, and that no discordant collision, but a ravishing harmony of the spheres, would ensue.
Margaret Fuller, 1810
