Elisabeth Cornwell "Where's Eve?"

Are we missing women from the secular movement? There has been a growing concern that women are underrepresented in the secular movement and a great deal of speculation as to why. Data show that women are more likely to be religious than men, attend church or synagogue more often. Is there something about religion that is particularly appealing to women? Or is secularism particularly hostile toward women?

Bio: An evolutionary psychologist, Elisabeth has been involved with the Richard Dawkins Foundation since its inception. Her innovative ideas include the OUT Campaign, Non-Believers Giving Aid, the science vignettes, the Four Horsemen and other DVDs, and bringing childcare to national conferences. She has worked to create an atmosphere of cooperation within the secular movement, bringing Richard and other speakers to conferences and university campuses across the US and Canada. Elisabeth has published in the popular press on matters ranging from science to women’s issues. USA Today listed her as one of the prominent women in the Freethought community. Through her leadership, RDF-US will continue to influence and expand the ideas and values of secularism on a global level.

    Knowledgeable, informative, funny. Replies to questions went on too long, I think. I think it is incredibly short sighted that the people responsible for the audio equipment didn't have a spare projector light on hand. She was gracious with her not being able to show her slides. I would have been furious. Slides always add a great deal to a discussion.

    I'll attend but can't find this May 19 meeting on this website. Is it elsewhere on the web? I can't find it and don't want to miss future SIG events.

    Are you planning any other events in May? I can't come on the 12th but would like to meet other Freethinking women. Maybe a lunch or dinner later in the month?
