   Women’s Radical Revolutions of Peace and Love Past, Present and Future presented by Rev. Bonnie Tarwater

This interactive workshop begins with the idea that it is past time for us to wake up to the suicidal course we are on as a human species and ask what we should do about it. We will explore how we, as women, are uniquely called to create ‘Radical Revolutions of Peace and Love’. We will explore past ‘Revolutions of Peace and Love’ in places as diverse as Liberia, led by Nobel Peace Prize winners, Leymah Gbowee, and Mairead Corrigan in Ireland, to Julia Ward Howe who inspired Mother’s Day here in the USA over one hundred years ago as an appeal for women to unite for peace in the world, to the successful sex strikes in ancient Greece and modern Columbia, as well as thewisdom of indigenous grandmothersaround the world andespecially the Grandmothers of Plaza de Mayo in Argentina. This workshop will include a sing along of “peace songs”, as well as a power point presentation of images depicting many women’s revolutions from the recent Women’s March, the largest global march in the history of the world to One Billion Rising and a women’s revolution of dance around the world. We will talk in small and large groups and leave the workshop with commitments to create a ‘Women’s Radical Revolution of Peace and Love’ individually and collectively.
