Normally I frown on creating new freethought groups because we tend to see new ones pop-up for no real reason but Secular Woman is a group our community needs to have. It will serve a group of non-religious people that tend to be under served or marginalize even within the freethought movement. I like their mission and value statements and the fact that even as a man I can join if I want to support their goals.
Margaret Sanger (1879 – 1966) is a controversial figure in history both for what she accomplished, distributing contraception information and the founding of Planned Parenthood, and for other views she held, such as support for the now discredited theory of Eugenics. It’s her effort to fight against religious and social conservatives for the right of women to have control over their own bodies that she is a Humanist you should know.
