The Status and Role of Women

Women's History Month


Women's History Month 2018-2020

Starting in 2018, GCSRW shifted from creating liturgical resources for worship to highlighting the real experiences of different women across the connection. In 2018, we uplifted the voices of laywomen in our denomination, including all the laywomen general secretaries. In 2019, we celebrated the diverse and unique ministries of women deacons in The United Methodist Church. To mark the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, we worked with Rev. Dr. Susan Lyn Moudry to create an article about all of the Methodist-affiliated women who worked tirelessly to pass the 19th Amendment. All of these blogs can be found in the archive below.

Women's History Month 2017

For Women's History Month 2017, the General Commission on the Status and Role of Women have complied liturgies and scripture that uplift women's stories and struggles throughout the Bible. You can access this liturgy and scripture resource here.

Throughout Women's History Month, we will share articles and stories of women who have done tremendous work for women to have access to full and equal participation in the life of the Church. Continue to visit this page throughout Women's History Month to engage with these stories as we uplift and celebrate women throughout the month of March.
