Early pioneer professional women to be admired Jan. 8 2008
By M. Frank Potter - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a well told story how the earliest women ministers - there were many - accepted parishes in the "West" (now the Midwest) when clergymen preferred the comfort, money, and status of East Coast pastorates. These seminary-educated liberal women were very active ministers to their members covering largely rural areas. They networked with each other since support was nearly nonexistent from their Eastern headquarters.

The right book at the right time Dec 4 2012
By V. Urbanowicz - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This account of the Iowa Sisterhood thoroughly merits its warm reception by Unitarian Universalists and others. Thoroughly researched and lucidly narrated, it reveals the courage, dedication, tact, and skill of Mary Safford, Eleanor Gordon, and their many colleagues who founded liberal congregations in the Midwest, a region where few Harvard-trained male Unitarian clergy would settle, and where those few typically would not settle long. Midwestern Unitarians sped the progress of American Unitarianism in a liberal direction, and the women of the Iowa Sisterhood were at the vital core of that process.
