Washington and Wall Street: ‘Women of Wisdom’ talk on civil disobedience

TRR photo by Sandy Long Grace Johansen, left, Vera B. Williams and Carol Rocklin were honored at the first gathering of the Crones Club last year. In addition to co-founding a cooperative community, starting a school and completing a 500-mile canoe trip on the Yukon River, Williams, a renowned children’s author and illustrator, has organized against militarism, injustice and the threat of nuclear destruction.

The Crones Club was founded last year by Sterner, to bring together the vibrant, sensitive and wise community of inspiring elder women who have completed the Maiden and Mother stages of their lives and have entered the rich and satisfying Crone phase. The group aims to share knowledge, resources, experiences, lessons learned and more, according to Sterner, who 10 years ago launched the Upper Delaware Community Network, an online tool connecting people interested in sustaining community in the region.

“Once again, I feel hope that we can change the world—one community at a time—as we come together to listen, connect and make our voices heard. If we are to live the good life and fight the good fight to the end,” said Sterner, “we need each other for support, nourishment and inspiration.”
