- Women of Freethought
If you take a peek at the freethought movement, you will see a movement fraught with sexism, including the suppression of freethinking topics by female authors. Let's CHANGE THAT! We are hosting an event for the freethinking gals. We will discuss Bettina Arndt's video (and counter views) "The Politics of Cleavage." This video does not represent the views of the orrganizers but rather meant to spark conversation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPQH0U2igOY&t=329s Counter Argument: Breast have not been sexualized in all cultures, at all times as they are in Western society.
