Like most other history, Unitarian Universalist history is mostly about what men have done. We can explore the hidden influences of women in our society and religious movement by dipping into the book Standing Before Us: Unitarian Universalist Women and Social Reform, 1776-1936, (Boston, Skinner House, 1999). As a contributing editor to this book, Helene will introduce some of the remarkable women who first thought that reform of the patriarchal treatment of women was actually even possible; then they fought for reforms in education, race relations, and religious thought and practice.
Helene Knox, an experienced college professor and scholarly editor, has taught Unitarian Universalist History since she specialized in it at Starr King School for the Ministry. As a church member, she is familiar to many for her Personal Theology presentations and provocative questions to other presenters.
