Dear Leo, very glad that you salute me! Thank you very much! Maybe I incorrectly filled your profile, I come to you sister, not brother.
Sorry about that.
To my understanding women in Freemasonry are more often referred to as "Brother," as least in the English speaking world. For example, none of the female brethren in my lodge are ever addressed as "Sister."

Oh, how curious! We have women in the Order referred to as sisters.
Dear Ami, indeed, an interesting difference!
Are the sisters, even among themselves call each other brothers?
@ ami "I have 3 degrees in lodge "Astre'a" in St.-Petersburg. This lodge GLDF" Wikipedia indicates, under the entry for the GLDF, that there exists a lodge in Moscow. Is "Astrea" a new lodge?
seekeroftruth Lodge "Astrea" works since 2001 . In St.-Petersburg work 4 Lodges (Astrea, Sfinks, Voskresenie, Pelikan). All of them under jurisdiction " The United Grand Lodge of Russia " (UGLR) UGLR has a recognition GLDF.
There are some mixed organizations that refer to all Masons as "Brothers." Other mixed or feminine organizations refer to sisters as "sisters" and brothers as "brothers." In the end it doesn't really matter as the long as the spirit of fraternity is there.

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.
