    RQFC-topic: Women in Masonry
    RQFC Details: I am very interested in masonry and what it has to offer in relation to spiritual and personal growth. In my research I have found conflicting ideals regarding the role of women in masonry. The Eastern Star is a society I am aware of, but not nearly as interested in. My grandfather was an exceptional human being & role model, and because he gave so much credit to the Masonic way, the idea of following his footsteps in a similar spirital awakening is intriguing.
