These wouldn't be women only events, they're just intended to appeal to women more, that's all. It seems like cooking is a top contender so far, which is fine with me. I love to cook. :)
Why do I want to appeal to women? The reason goes back to my core purpose in starting this group, creating a social group for atheists. I believe that any social community will fail over time if the proportion of women in it is too low.
This is, of course, excepting groups that are intended to be women or
male only, like a single mom's group or weightlifting for men.
I haven't been seeing that many women at our events and I'm not sure if it's because the events are interesting to them, the proportion of women is just lower than men in our group or if women are busier than men.
We're looking for intelligent, creative and fun people to join our community of Neighborhood Atheists and Agnostics. Building a fun-loving, supportive community is the main purpose of this group, not discussion of atheist philosophy. This group will provide the benefits available to like-minded communities without the downsides, such as religious beliefs. We welcome atheists, agnostics, humanists, brights and other secular humans.
