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.
omni: In my Lodge the Secretary is a hugh bully along with control issues. if anyone even asks a question he files masonic charges against them. He controls members mostly because they are afraid of him.

The Ancient: To omni: Grow some balls, that lodge is yours as well as every member in that lodge. If you are right, its not your problem. Nobody likes the ugliness of masonic charges. Light will always illuminate darkness, don't be afraid, be a better man.
