"Moving Off the Line" by Ruth Peyser (6th dan, shidoin)

Here is an article entitled "Moving Off the Line" from Ruth Peyser (6th dan, shidoin)—her account of what happened to her after she supported a petition "requesting that the governing body of the United States Aikido Federation (USAF) address issues of gender equality in the organization."

From her article: "I'm trying to move on but it's hard. It's like losing a loved one. New York Aikikai was a major part of my life for four decades. A friend got my things from New York Aikikai, met me on the northwest corner of Union Square outside Petco and handed me a bag with my hakama, belt and kneepads. And then it was over."

The initial petition and subsequent timeline may be found on Facebook here: Independent Coalition of USAF Women.
