Returning from Center for Inquiry's Women in Secularism conference, we perceived a need for a local group supporting women in the secular and humanist community of NYC. Safe spaces coupled with open house discussions are invaluable to a comfortable and inclusive environment.
Our group will meet to discuss women's issues and the role of women in the secular and humanist community, as well as host social activities that encourage a supportive and vibrant community. We will also find ways to support local and national initiatives tackling gender equality and women's rights.
Feminist Freethinkers of NY (https://feministfreethinkers.wordpress.com/) is cognizant of the intersections between gender, race, sexuality, class, and ability, and strives to maintain a conscious and inviting space for all.
