A workshop entitled Patriarchy: Making Connections Between Men, Women & War” will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Bellport.
The workshop will look at patriarchy as a system--a system that has used war, fear and subjugation of women to gain dominance, control and acquisition. The group will search for insight and cooperation to make this a better world for our children, as we did not create this system, we were born into it, but we can contribute to change. For this reason, men, as well as women, are encouraged to attend.
