Shakers
The United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, known as the Shakers, is a religious sect. Founded upon the teachings of Ann Lee, Shakers today are mostly known for their cultural contributions (especially their style of music and furniture), celibate and communal lifestyle, and their model of equality of the sexes, which they institutionalized in their society in the 1780s.
