There exist in England and Wales at least two Grand Lodges solely for women. Except that these bodies admit women, they are, so far as can be ascertained, otherwise regular in their practice
There is also one which admits both men and women to membership. They are not recognised by this Grand Lodge and intervisitation may not take place.
There are, however, discussions from time to time with the women's Grand Lodges on matters of mutual concern. Brethren are therefore free to explain to non-Masons, if asked, that Freemasonry is not confined to men(even though this Grand Lodge does not itself admit women). Further information about these bodies may be obtained by writing to the Grand Secretary." .........................................................................................
My italics for emphasis.
So there you have it. UGLE accepts the REGULARITY of Women's Freemasonry but it is Co-Masonry which is rejected by it.
That should squash the argument of certain Male Masons who refuse to accept that Women too can be Freemasons.
... ah fellas - what can I say - "why can't they be like you are, perfect in every way..."
Thank you, thank you from the women of the world!
Stewart your mention of chaining myself to railings set me wondering ... my subconscious bought up the tarot card Strength in response. In particular the Rider-Waite illustration where the beautiful lady (the women of the world) is GENTLY opening the mouth of the Fiery Lion - by using her energy, courage, self control, learning, fortitude and power.
sbs59: Can someone help me with this question. I was a Master Mason for 4 years until last year. My father died and i left the Masons as i was depressed about his death. Can i now re join a lodge?

The Ancient: sbs59: Were you suspended for non payment of dues? if so, square up and petition the lodge for a restatement vote. If your dues are current, your still a member. In this case, it is all about the Benjamins.
