WOMEN CROSS THE MOON

Middle Eastern Women Breaking Bread

Women Cross the Moon began after a chance meeting of two women, one Afghan,

one Armenian, as the result of the spirited discussion which then transpired

over coffee.

We call ourselves Women Cross the Moon because the name has a metaphorical

spirit that sparks the imagination. It implies the impossible is possible. It

speaks to the limitless power of our combined forces. It suggests the

incomparable power of women to embrace the situation wholistically, working

for the good of the whole. It is only natural for women, life’s mothers, to

exalt in this capacity, because in our hearts we know that everyone is

someone’s child, and so everyone is, in a sense, one of our children.

Women Cross the Moon came into being at the onset of the American war against

Afghanistan, and because of this a certain amount of focus was on the way in

which the religious affiliations of Christians, Muslims and Jews have been

used to divide us. That is why the symbol we use to represent our

organization is a women’s symbol composed of the cross associated with

Christianity, the crescent moon of Islam, and the six-pointed star of

Judaism.

It is our intention to bring women together to educate, empower, and unite us

across religious and national boundaries that have divided us, and to

eventually grow to reach across the globe to break bread with women around

the world, and to bring bread to women and families in need.

But if we achieve nothing more, we will set as our goal our primary

organizing tool, that of breaking bread and reating an open forum in which

women can learn from one another in an atmosphere of trust, respect and

compassion.

Please join us to see how far we can go when reaching for the moon.
