Unitarian Universalists are well-known for supporting women’s
rights. We consistently speak out
in support of reproductive rights, including family planning, abortion, and
comprehensive sexuality education
. For parents and
guardians of all genders, Unitarian Universalists have advocated for adequate
day care, governmental and workplace family support, and compassionate welfare
We actively support women in every role in our denomination,
from greeting visitors to leading congregational committees to delivering Sunday
sermons. More than
half of all active Unitarian Universalist ministers are women. Our support for female leadership has
more than one hundred years of grounding. In 1863 we became the first denomination
in the United States to
ordain a woman with full denominational authority.
