The Gender Disparity in Atheism, How Can it Change?

Posted on May 2, 2011 at 9:30pm 32 Comments

It is clear to many members of the atheist internet blogosphere that there is a noticeable gender disparity among participants in atheist activities (fora, blogs, comments, readership) online.There are also indications that this discrepancy is continued offline as well, in self-identification on surveys and in participation in atheist community groups. There is a similar disproportion in popular published material and mainstream…

Atheist/feminist typology

Posted on May 2, 2011 at 4:00pm 18 Comments

So I'm doing some work with another member of A|N and we're doing some research on the intersection of gender, feminism and faithlessness. I've come up with a (very rough, very ugly) typology sort of piece about how feminists are religious (or not). It is based mostly on my own experiences and observations as well as some of the trends I've noticed in research about feminism and religion.

This very rough typology can be found as a google doc here:…


looking for poll data, would appreciate help

Posted on April 18, 2011 at 9:21pm 1 Comment

I'm looking for a poll I know I read about a few months (up to a year) ago about why people are leaving the church. It cited, among other topics, the treatments of gays and the treatment of women as reasons people are leaving religion.


If you find it, I will possibly love you forever.

Thanks muchly, Rikka…


Atheists as Outsiders

Posted on February 26, 2010 at 12:00am 2 Comments

Don't know how many of you read the Friendly Atheist but a lovely piece about atheists as members of an "outsider" religious group was posted by Mike Clawson and I figured it couldn't hurt to post it other places so people could read it.…

Greetings, Rikka, from a fellow Philadelphian (sort of, just north of city)! I'd like to invite you to a group where we talk about anything on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D

Rikka - the Feminist Atheist group has had some trolling problems so I started the Atheist Feminist group here recently. It's moderated so if trollage flares up we can boot 'em.  It's still small, so any good members we can attract are always a plus.  Of course, people can be members of both groups - so please do join us!


I totally believe that *everyone* should be both atheist and feminist - especially women! Gah.

Saw a few of your comments on the Secular Sexuality group, and thought you might be interested in the Polyamory group.
