|Women’s Spirituality emerged in the 1970's and 80's as a major component of the “second wave” of the women’s liberation movement. On this site you will meet some of the Foremothers of that emergence, many of whom are actively continuing
and evolving their work today. They are scholars, artists, activists,
authors, teachers, performers and ritualists.
Many people today do not know of these pioneering women and their ongoing living wisdom. And that is why this Foremothers of Women’s Spirituality Online Resource was created.>
The Resource aims

the generations together, restore, and inspire the ongoing resurgence of
women’s collective spiritual wisdom and power.

Women’s Spirituality Movement: Elders and Visionaries, which inspired
this Online Resource. And to the many women who gave of their time and wisdom to make this Resource possible.
