You need to be a member of women atheists to add comments!

I do think women are more prone to being closet atheists. We know that to others, it is seen as fighting words, instead of a simple declarative statement about your belief or non-belief system. If I find that I want to soften the blow, I often state I'm agnostic instead. It is still an excuse but I find it more honest than simply smiling and thanking someone for praying for me in a time of need. So I'll say, thank you for your positive thoughts. But I'm agnostic so don't trouble your god with details of my private life. ;-) Which doesn't go over very well either....

Although a few people where I taught knew I was an atheist, I would never have put it out as common knowledge. I would have been fired for absolute certain. But now I am retired, so I WILL be putting that out there as a part of who I am. Don't mean to be divisive or antagonistic. It's just part of me.

If you are over 40, female atheists are a definite rarity!

Hello Godless Goddesses!

I think the men feel more secure in their social status in life to risk standing out in a crowd. Women, we tend to have more to loose. Especially in the job market where we are already at a disadvantage.

I have always heard there are fewer women atheists than men, but I don't know if anybody ever actually took a survey. Maybe everybody just thinks that.

Any parents of elem. kids? I have a 2nd grader, we live in WVa, and must be one of the few atheists in the area.
