Presbyterian Women (PW), which is composed of more than 300,000 members, offers women in the church meaningful ways to live out their faith in the midst of a caring community of women. For more than 200 years Presbyterian women’s groups have strengthened the Presbyterian Church and played a major role in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and witnessing to the promise of God’s kingdom. In 2013 Presbyterian Women celebrated 25 years of praying and working together as an organization created after the reunification of PCUS and PCUSA.

INITIATIVES and EMPHASES

Antiracism Initiative: Churchwide, members of the Presbyterian Women's organization are committed to a goal of eradicating racism. They have acknowledged that “racism is imbedded in the very structure of our society and thus requires a very intentional effort to eradicate it.”

Racial Ethnic Dialogue: The Racial Ethnic Dialogue Group consists of 21 women, including white and racial ethnic members-at-large from the Churchwide Coordinating Team of Presbyterian Women and women from each of the six racial ethnic women’s constituency groups. The group seeks to honor the gifts of all people while finding ways to dialogue and work together as an inclusive caring community.

Immigration: Churchwide, the organization of Presbyterian Women has committed itself to studying immigration issues.
