Women’s Alliance Meeting features speaker Alorie Parkhill March 8

women meetingThe Women’s Alliance potluck supper and meeting for Tuesday, March 8 will feature Alorie Parkhill, educator and longtime member of First Parish, leading a discussion on feminism, ageism, the generation gap, and the relationship between all three. A fifth-generation UU, Alorie has belonged to First Parish since 1968 and has written and directed a number of plays for children in our RE program. She taught English at the Cambridge School of Weston for over forty years and also served as Assistant Head for a time before “retiring” to teach at LLAIC (Lifelong Learning: An Independent Collaborative), which she helped to found. Her course starting March 1 is on U.S. Feminisms from the 19th century to the present. She states: “I am looking forward to to talking with women in the church about their visions of feminism.  What does it means to be a feminist in these times? What are the issues that really matter to you? Come and talk!”

The potluck meeting will be in the Commons and will start at 6:30 pm (or thereabouts). As with all our programs, they are open to all women connected to the church in any way. Any kind of food or drink, purchased or homemade, is welcome.
