In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8th), here are a few awesome Unitarian, Universalist, or Unitarian Universalist women you should tell your kids about:
1. Susan B. Anthony (Unitarian and Quaker)
These were all women who were born before women could vote in this country. They were born in an era that did not respect women’s independence and intelligence, but they did not accept that as the way things had to be. Many of the rights and opportunities that we enjoy now as women and girls owe much to the efforts of these women who came before us.
For a more kid-friendly version of this story, you could read this story from Tapestry of Faith to your children tomorrow. And then you could also discuss some of these current women’s equality issues as well.
Happy Women’s Day!
