02/12/2017 Nevertheless, She Persisted

Rev. Teresa Schwartz

2017 began with the biggest march in U.S. history – an estimated 2.9 million people marched for women’s rights, joined by people around the globe. This year, Unitarian Universalists will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Women & Religion Resolution. Forty years ago, our General Assembly called us to look hard at the religious roots of sexism and address women’s rights as part of our UU identity. Women’s rights, leadership and sexual assault continue to be at the top of our news feeds – and at the core of our lives. From being mansplained to acute violence against women to inequality in the workplace and the world, feminism(s) is/are as crucial today as ever, not just for women and girls, but for everyone.
