and continue to teach until mastered? If not..why not?

Do women have better morals than male masons?

Are women the real power behind freemasonry?

Do male masons fear that women freemasons hold the power, to good moral freemasonry?

Kind regards

While UGLE 'acknowledges' the existence of women's freemasonry and that, in England, they appear to be regular in all respects other than gender, no interaction is permitted either by UGLE or by the two mail women's Grand Lodges. There is at least one organisation of mixed gender freemasonry which is regarded in a similar prohibitive light.

It has often been said, with some justification, that a woman can be 'the power behind the throne' and 'behind every good man is a good woman'!

I was asked by a Roslin contact to give a walking tour of Edinburgh Royal miles masonic history to 15 Austrians
But he didnt tell me they were all female!
Great fun with them displaying full knowledge of history and more

Their history can be found on their websites - https://www.owf.org.uk/ and http://www.hfaf.org/ .. there are two such GLs in England. The ritual they use is exactly the same as the mens and the regalia they is is also the same (although the owf also wear surplices) - and (certainly here), no, they don't have the Eastern Star - that seems to be specific to the US. And they call each other 'Brother'.

The Eastern Star has a sovereign Grand Chapter in Scotland, though many Chapters have closed in recent years. According to their website, they have 10 Chapters in England, mainly in the north, but there are two listed in Hampshire. It is a proscribed body by UGLE but not by GLoS.

Eastern Star is also very active in Canada.
