Introducing Website Curator Liz Fisher

I am curator of the content of this website, and am author of the popular UUWF course Rise Up and Call Her Name, A Woman-honoring Journey into Global Earth-based Spiritualities and the UUSC course Gender Justice: Women’s Rights are Human Rights, which presents the Platform for Action for Women adopted at the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing China in 1995. I was a co-convener and participant in the Pacific Central District Women and Religion Task Force from 1983-2001 and then took on the task of archiving this Movement .

Liz Fisher’s W&R Autobiographical Statement

I knew Lucile from the 1980s to the end of her life and frequently discussed with Lucile the personal and political impact of the Women and Religion Movement, both within the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and in the larger society. Lucile’s daughter, Linda Schuck , gave me a copy of THE RED NOTEBOOK hoping it would be shared with others since the material is still very timely. I am inspired by Lucile’s insights, enjoy her prose and committed to posting her important work with proper context and background notes.
