Our Women’s Awareness Group (WAG) grew out of a “Women in Religion” class taught at FUS in the early 1980s. Over the years we have explored literature, art, film, ideas, and current issues important to us as women. Our awareness grew as many of us discussed these issues frankly for the very first time. We continue to be a group of women of varied ages, interests and occupations, single and married, who enjoy the stimulating discussions, the shared insights, and the respect we hold for one another. We appreciate the confidentiality maintained by this welcoming group, which gives us the freedom to discuss ideas and concerns.
While we consider ourselves to be “members” of WAG, we are an informal group with no bylaws, no officers, and no dues. Our group’s strength lies in the ongoing commitment of its members. Meetings have traditionally been held in members’ homes, with a co-host assisting; however, because of Covid we have been meeting on Zoom since 2020. At each meeting, we first “check-in” to let folks know what has been happening in our lives since the last time we met. This is followed by a discussion on a topic of interest. The topic for the month may be decided by the hosts or another WAG member. FUS women are invited to join us.
