Voices of Women in AA
(formerly known as Women's Big Book Study)
"Empowering Women's Stories of Sobriety
in Alcoholics Anonymous."
Monday 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Beginning Monday, June 5, 2023
Join us and experience something new and refreshing.
Our primary purpose of this meeting is to read from the book "Voices of Women in AA" and share our experiences, strengths, and hope with each other in the AA recovery program.
Voices of Women in AA is a collection of 61 stories from Grapevine. The book begins with articles by or about women who contributed to AA early in its history, followed by stories by some of the program's earliest female members. Sections are devoted to spirituality, sponsorship, life changes, relationships, family, careers, and friendships. The collection concludes with a chapter devoted to women's meetings. The stories demonstrate the various ways women alcoholics-often with great courage-find sobriety in AA and embrace the program to live rich and rewarding lives.
Following the general introduction, the book consists of ten chapters with stories related to the following themes:
Chapter 1: "Our Beloved Friends" stories of non-alcoholic women who helped AA early in its history.
Chapter 2: "Pioneers" contains stories about early women alcoholics getting sober and helping open doors for more women in Alcoholics Anonymous.
This meeting will follow the general format of an AA meeting. We will read together as a group the Voices of Women in AA and have a open discussion regarding the story read and how it pertains to our life today.
We will have books available at the meeting, or feel free to bring your own.
