Elizabeth Fisher and Shirley Ranck—
“Authors of germinal religious education curricula focused on feminist spirituality and woman-honoring traditions, originally published by the UU Women and Religion program, their work with Rise Up & Call Her Name and Cakes for the Queen of Heaven continues to change the lives of women around the country by introducing them to a vision of what the world could be like if the divine was imaged as female.”
