Freethought and Women’s Suffrage: Wednesday’s CFI INSIDER Online Event


August 21, 2020

One hundred years ago, women across the United States finally won the right to vote after decades of activism and struggle. The role of freethought and religious skepticism in that struggle has been whitewashed out of the history of women’s suffrage, when in fact secularism was a driving force.

This Wednesday, August 26, at 7pm ET—the centennial of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment—join historians Judith Wellman and Susan Goodier with CFI’s Tom Flynn, Editor of Free Inquiry magazine and director of the Freethought Trail, for the next live CFI INSIDER online event: a conversation about the intersection of freethought and women’s suffrage. 

Free registration is required to watch this live Zoom event, so sign up right now!


Plus: Check out the latest special issue of Free Inquiry magazine commemorating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage, with articles by Judith Wellman, Tom Flynn, Sue Boland, and more.

NEXT MONTH: Mark your calendars for CFI INSIDER on September 29 at 7:00pm ET – Bertha Vazquez, director of the Teacher Institute for Evolutionary Science, presents “Evolution is for Everyone.” REGISTER NOW.
