Happy Birthday, Pauli Murray

In her philosophical autobiography, Outercourse, Mary Daly makes several references to the civil rights activist, lawyer, and professor Pauli Murray, who was also one of the first women in the US ordained as an Episcopal priest. Murray was a fascinating and inspiring woman who maintained a lifelong commitment to the cause of universal human rights. You can start to find out more about her by visiting the Pauli Murray Project, and by reading her Wikipedia biography.

November 21st was the 100th anniversary of Pauli Murray's birth.
