A group of women learning and discerning together how God can use them to bring help and hope to women and girls around the world in need of both.
Who are we?
We are women of all ages and stages from around the North Shore of Boston. Though Christian faith informs and inspires most of us, and the large majority of the women are in Christian churches, Christian faith is not a requirement for involvement.
What do we do?
In the year we have been meeting we have chosen two local efforts to which we give support, and we expect to choose an international effort very soon. Locally, we give our time, talents, and treasure to Amirah Boston, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing holistic after-care for women coming out of human trafficking, and to Route One Ministry, ministering to women working in the sex clubs of Route One north of Boston.
What is our goal?
Our goal is to make ourselves as aware and understanding as possible about the complex economic, social, cultural, gender and religious dynamics that have produced so much abuse and oppression of females, and then to determine what role there might be for us individually and corporately to help women. To that end, most of our monthly meetings include a speaker knowledgeable about a particular area of oppression/opportunity; we have created our own lending library of relevant books and DVDs, and at meetings and through emails are updated on what individuals in our group are doing and/or encourage others to do.
When and where do we meet?
We meet from 7-9 pm the first Monday of most months at Christ Episcopal Church on Asbury Street in Hamilton, MA.
