Ron Lindsay, CEO of Center for Inquiry, opened his organization's Women in Secularism2 conference, with an unwelcoming message. When faced with criticism, he did not act with grace and apologize. Quite the opposite.
Yesterday, we released our Statement of Objection to Center for Inquiry CEO Ron Lindsay's Actions Regarding Feminism wherein Secular Woman outlined the conclusions we are forced to draw from the lack of apology or retractions concerning Lindsay's statements and actions during Women in Secularism2. Today, our members are speaking up.
Secular Woman is happy to announce our grant award recipients for the second Women in Secularism Conference.
Trinity Aodh; she tell us she is relatively new to secular activism and eager to attend her first secular conference.
Rachel Tobias; she left Orthodox Judaism and has been making her way into the secular movement. She hopes to eventually become a speaker at conferences like these and share her experiences with Judaism, Atheism, LGBTQ and Feminism.

“Pregnant? Need Help?”
Have you seen these signs around your community? You might be forgiven for mistaking them as advertisements for women’s health centers – but you’d be wrong. These are advertisements for religious organizations called Crisis Pregnancy Centers and they are the happy recipients of your tax dollars.

Member article by Rogelio Tavera, his thoughts as a religious man in the wake of the Boston tragedies and secular people’s exclusion from official mourning and commemoration ceremonies.
Greetings, my siblings in humanity!
As a man of faith, I wish to speak about the painfully obvious exclusion of secular people from the memorial service for the recent boston marathon tragedy.
