Panel discussions will cover such topics as the role of feminism in skepticism, the challenges for women in leaving religion, how secularism can advance the cause of women’s rights, and what secularists can learn from other social movements. Participating in these discussions will be a wealth of secularism’s women thinkers and activists.
