Activity 3: Freedom (20 minutes), Workshop 13: The Women's Movement

In "Resistance and Transformation," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

Preparation for Activity

  • Read Handout 3 and copy for all participants.
  • Arrange for two volunteers to read the handout aloud, alternating points. Give them the handout in advance.

Description of Activity

Distribute the Handout 3, Freedom—an explanation of what "freedom" meant to one member of the Arlington Street Women's Caucus. Read the first paragraph aloud, then have the two volunteers alternate reading the bulleted items. Lead a discussion with these questions:

  • Which of the ideas expressed seem outdated?
  • Do any of the issues expressed continue to be relevant?

If you have a multigenerational group, encourage conversation between people who experienced the 1960s and '70s as adults and those who were children or not yet born. Be intentional in including the perspectives and experiences of people of all genders.
