A Piece of the Puzzle: Women’s Liberation in the 1970s

Rev. Cynthia Johnson

“I look at this life as a puzzle without all the pieces in the box.”

— Jonathan Anthony Burkett

Thirteen UUFDC Members and Friends in their 60s, 70s, and 80s recently gathered to discuss how our lives were shaped by the Women’s Liberation movement of the 1970s.  We talked and listened and pondered how our individual lives unfolded amidst a cultural shift that was markedly different from our mothers’ lives.

Cynthia Johnson, a retired Unitarian Universalist minister who served UU congregations in Texas and Oklahoma, joined UUFDC in 2000 when she and Al moved to Door County. Cynthia is active as an artist and a poet. She enjoys family and friends, nature, travel, and reading and writing.
