Welcome To Church!
"Across the broad continent of a woman's life falls the shadow of a sword. On one side all is correct, definite, orderly; the paths are straight, the trees regular, the sun shaded; escorted by gentlemen, protected by policemen, wedded and buried by clergymen, she has only to walk demurely from cradle to grave and no one will touch a hair of her head. But on the other side all is confusion. Nothing follows a regular course. The paths wind between bogs and precipices; the trees roar and rock and fall in ruin.” ― Virginia Woolf
Sex and Judgement's "Church On The B-Sides" recognizes women who lived their lives on the B-sides.
These Matron Saints were chosen for their courage to live their lives by the "sword", thereby sharing a testimony that is rarely expressed or sought after but needed now more than ever for girls and women who want to survive in a world waiting to exploit them.
Likeability is not a pre-requisite for an S&J Matron Saint.
Rather, tenacity, grit, endurance, fortitude and a personality that was a force of nature are the qualifiers.
Church on the B-Sides is the philosophy and spirituality of Sex and Judgement. It challenges women to reconsider their moral codes or to at least question what has informed their codes of morality in the first place.
This list is in constant flux.
Considering the pre-requisites for S&J's Matron Saints, who would you like to see added to this list?
