Maasika Mahotsav means a Period Festival

The organization called “A Period of Sharing,” works through the Muse Foundation of Maharashtra, India. In late March, they invited the GRACE Project and CUUPs to participate in the Maasika Mahotsav, A Period Festival, for May of 2022.  

This global initiative promotes entertaining and educational events to tackle the discrimination and systematic suppression attached to menstruation.  With discussions, dances, skits, and games, women and men work together to break menstrual taboos while spreading positive period attitudes.  Groups also promote reusable menstrual pads and menstrual cups.

It comes as a surprise for many to celebrate periods, especially when society treats them as ‘dirty’ secrets to hide. Menstruation is a completely normal and biological process that needs to be understood, acknowledged, and accepted.  Maasika Mahotsav takes it a step further by going all out to celebrate women, reclaim spaces and demonstrate equity in society. 

This is the fifth year for Maasika Mahotsav, and dozens of cities and organizations in India, Asia and Africa celebrate all week long.  This is the first year that a group in the United State was invited to participate, which is quite an honor for GRACE and CUUPs. This is an exciting global premier for the UUCFM!

Covid Protocol Update

 

The efficacy of vaccines and treatments has significantly reduced Covid’s danger for most of us.  As a result, the protocols for campus events have been revised: 

  1. Masks will continue to be required in the sanctuary during worship services.
  2. Masks are optional for coffee and other functions in Hobart Hall.
  3. In the library, classrooms, and other small spaces, masks are required UNLESS everyone present agrees otherwise.  We’ll continue to be respectful and protective of those of us whose immunity is impaired.
  4. Worship services and UU Dialogues will continue to be available on Zoom.

Although the Covid risk level will continue to fluctuate, I’m sure all of us hope the worst of the pandemic is behind us.  We’ll continue to monitor the risk and change the guidelines as needed to protect our congregation.

Please reach out to me with any questions at UUCFMPresident@UUCFM.org.

Namaste,

Mary Studer

President, Board of Trustees

This Day in Unitarian Universalist History

  • This Day in Unitarian Universalist History July 10

    1660 – After a century of religious freedom, this date was established as the deadline by which all Socinians were required either to conform to Catholicism or leave Poland. Too poor to emigrate, many Unitarians were forced either to live in hiding or practice in secret. For affluent Polish Unitarians, this date marks the beginning of their Great Exile into other parts of Europe.

    The post July 10 first appeared on Harvard Square Library.
