First Parish in Wayland: “Women Rising: Justice, Equity and Claiming Space”

February 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

It has been seven years since the #MeToo movement. People have been put in jail for abuse and some have been cancelled for misogynistic behavior. But, has anything really changed? We all know others were not jailed or cancelled, but instead venerated for their hurtful rhetoric toward women. Let’s join together on Feb.11 at 10 a.m. to explore how we can continue to rise up and end the systemic disempowerment of women and create a welcoming world for all. The Rev. Deborah Bennett will lead the service.

First Parish in Wayland (225 Boston Post Rd.), a Unitarian Universalist community, extends a warm invitation to everyone interested in joining our services. Our vibrant, multigenerational community offers a sanctuary for diverse beliefs and passions. We joyfully offer our hearts and hands to build a more just, compassionate, and sustainable world. All are truly welcome, including LGBTQ+ persons. For more information, please visit uuwayland.org or call 508-358-6133.

Free childcare is available for infants through pre-K. Older children can attend our Spiritual and Ethical Exploration for Kids (SEEK) program, where kids explore ways to lead principled lives. Children of all ages also are welcome to stay with parents during services if their families prefer. We also offer social and educational opportunities for middle and high school youth. For a class schedule and updates, please contact the office (508-358-6133) to sign up for our weekly emails.
