The Open Door
by: Ann Pilcher-Dayton
Few people realise that women can become Freemasons. Written not only for Masons but also the interested general reader, this book celebrates the Centenary of a hitherto almost unknown organisation _ the Order of Women Freemasons. In the first available record of its history, and using previously unpublished records and photographs, the OrderÍs Librarian and Archivist traces the gradual expansion of the movement from its beginning in London in 1908 as an Order for both men and women to its current all-female membership of thousands over four continents. Well illustrated, with many pictures in colour, the book includes a Preface by the Grand Master of the Order, four appendices including a list of all Lodges and the further Degrees practised and a detailed Index.
