Herstory of


In 1985, the Women and Religion Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Association’s Thomas Jefferson District (now the Southeast District) conceived of the idea of hosting an all-women’s spiritual retreat. Through the efforts of these visionary women, the first Gathering was held over the weekend of May 15, 1987 at The Mountain Retreat Center in Highlands, North Carolina.
