The Center for Inquiry Spring Speakers Series will present Annie Laurie Gaylor March 8, 6 p.m. as a celebration of International Women's Day (www.internationalwomensday.com). She is the editor of Women Without Superstition: No Gods, No Masters -- The Collected Writings of Women Freethinkers of the Nineteenth & Twentieth Centuries and the author of Woe to Women -- The Bible Tells Me So: The Bible, Female Sexuality & the Law and Betrayal of Trust: Clergy Abuse of Children. She will be telling the untold story of the many women freethinkers who led the feminist and other social movements of their time. It is because of these women who challenged the religious influence over civil laws and practices that women have the rights they have today.
Gaylor and her mother, Annie Nicole Gaylor, co-founded Freedom From Religion Foundation, Madison, Wis., in 1976. Gaylor is now co-president of FFRF with her husband, Dan Barker, and is editor of Freethought Today. For more information, go to www.ffrf.org.
