There are two UCV women’s groups ready to welcome one or two additional participants. One meets monthly on Tuesday evenings and the other 2 Fridays per month in the afternoon. We now have several women’s writing groups and are about to start another one.
The Women’s Retreat on Saturday, October 23 was very inspiring and energizing.
Here are some of the comments:
- A very informative and thought-provoking presentation by Jo-Anne. I enjoyed learning about the latest waves – 4, 5, 6. It put issues into the perspective of an expanding feminism. The small group discussions worked surprisingly well. The questions worked well to make the thrust of the different waves hit home.
- I enjoyed hearing about the women’s groups from past decades. Quite amazing how many different kinds of groups there are at UCV.
- The evening prose readings was a very moving session. There was a general theme about death and remembrance which, of course, leads to some sadness and/or nostalgia – even anger. However I was very impressed with the writing as well as the interesting content – all different but similar too.
- This was my first time attending a retreat like this. Very “Growth-ful”.
