Check out Karen Gorder Garst's site "The Faithless Feminist." She tells us:
It was not a simple decision...when I left behind my faith.I highly recommend her site. Read this guest post by Shanna Babilonia, who discusses five reasons why organized religion might have problems with educated women.
However, I could no longer ignore the historical and social truths that surrounded me.
For me, the Bible became a book written by men that reinforced a patriarchal view of society. I began to identify as an atheist.
I could have left it as a private decision shared only with friends and family. But I became troubled as I continued to see the reach of religion into women’s private lives. I reached out to other women who had left religion behind and asked them to write about their journeys.
I am currently in the process of getting their 18 stories published in a new book.
This website is intended to continue that discussion with posts not just by my authors and myself, but by others who want a forum to discuss current events on the intersection of women and religion or other topics relevant to “faithless feminists.”
