Women in Secularism II

Two New Videos: Panels About Gender Equality and Advancing Women's Concerns

WIS2 Speakers for Panel #4
Throughout the summer we've been compiling videos from the second Women in Secularism conference, organized by CFI and held in Washington, D.C., this past May.

Dozens of speakers joined over 300 attendees at this remarkable event, and we're very pleased to be able to share their presentations with you.

Visit to watch the videos!

Today we continue the series with two new panel discussions:

• "Gender Equality in the Secular Movement" featuring Ophelia Benson, R. Elisabeth Cornwell, Debbie Goddard, Stephanie Zvan, and Greta Christina

• "How Women's Concerns Can Best Be Advanced Within the Context of a Secular Agena" featuring Soraya Chemaly, Susan Jacoby, Amanda Marcotte, Katha Pollitt, and Jamila Bey

"Heresy Makes for Progress" TeeHypatia Bradlaugh Bonner was a British educator, editor, and atheist who lived from 1858-1934. She published a humanist journal, the Reformer, to promote her belief that “heresy makes for progress”—the perfect sentiment to express the goals of today’s women in secularism while also honoring the super-women who first led the way.
