The topic for this meeting was “Women in Freethought” and was moderated by Lanette Grate, who referred to the book Women Without Superstition; No Gods, No Masters. She also passed out copies of her own odyssey from religion to freethought: “Some Free Thots of My Own” which also included many powerful quotes by a number of women throughout history who thought for themselves, broke with traditional (extremely limited) expectations and roles assigned to them simply due to their sex. These included authors and editors, women’s rights advocates, abolitionists, teachers, suffragettes, attorneys, birth control advocates, Church and Sate separationists, activists and skeptics.
