Undone By Women

Women in the United States were granted suffrage less than a century ago and still do not have an Equal Rights Amendment. Throughout our history, we have left our homes and taken to the streets to demand the vote, choice over our own bodies, to be seen and heard. Every generation of mothers tries to leave her daughters a better world. Yet time and again we are thwarted by misogynist forces. The legacy of the second Women’s March on January 20th, fueled by the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, must be to unite and undo these forces once and for all.

Anne Klaeysen is an Ethical Culture Leader serving the NY Society for Ethical Culture, Columbia University, and New York University. She holds a Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Counseling from Hebrew Union College and Masters degrees in business administration from NYU and German from SUNY Albany. Anne also serves on the boards of The Encampment for Citizenship and Sunday Assembly NYC.


March theme: Balance.  What does it mean to be a person of balance?  What does it mean to be a community of balance?

11 a.m. is gathering time, to meet and greet one another.  We start the formal program at 11:15 and usually end about 12:30.  After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks.  Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!
