Startup Stories: First and Only NonProfit Focus on Atheist Women

Tell us about your product or service.
Secular Woman is the first and only nonprofit organization focused on promoting secular women. The mission is to amplify the voice, presence, and influence of non-religious women.

Secular Woman envisions a future in which women without supernatural beliefs have the opportunities and resources they need to participate openly and confidently as respected voices of leadership in the secular community and every aspect of society.

We have a variety of values that include Humanism, Family & Relationships, Health & Sexuality, Feminism, and the Secular Community.

What inspired you to launch your business?
I was inspired by the secular community, Women in Secularism (the first secular conference focused on women), and my years of volunteerism and activism.

Like many communities, the secular community is struggling with sexism, sexual harassment, and giving women full voice.

The idea for a secular woman’s organization was on created while driving home from Women in Secularism. Stunningly, the secular community had no organization focused on women!

What problem does your business or organization solve?
Secular Woman is working to ensure that all secular women are treated equally by their government, within their society, and that critical reasoning and facts are what drive decision making.

@AbortTheocracy is a Secular Woman project focused on the intersection of religious power over women’s bodily autonomy and sovereignty, dedicated to terminating that connection by opposing religious influence in government. Recently, we began #shameLESS a campaign for secular women to tell their abortion stories.

What has been your biggest challenge and how are you working to overcome it?
Our biggest challenge is that we are a virtual (inter)national organization with limited funds.

We have dedicated and incredibly talented volunteers that bring their passions, expertise, and interests to helping Secular Woman flourish, grow, and succeed.

While this is a challenge, it is also one of our strengths. We are not weighed down my location, overhead, and tradition. We are always searching for new technology-based solutions for infrastructure, communications, and fund development.

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.
Focused, Driven, Passionate.
