Secularism protects freedom of conscience, and advances equal rights for women. And, whether you are a woman or a man, you can help to shape the future of secular activism and women’s rights around the world by coming to Dublin on the weekend of 29-30 June 2013.
You will hear and meet and socialise with inspiring speakers and panelists and conference participants from around the world. You will help to shape strategies for positive change, and vote on an international Declaration on Empowering Women Through Secularism.
We will discuss how religion and religiously-influenced laws discriminate against women in areas from healthcare, sexuality and reproductive rights to education, careers and social policy, as well as how to combat violence against women and the history and future of women in atheist and secular activism.
The conference is hosted by Atheist Ireland, in the O’Callaghan Alexander Hotel where we hosted the sell-out World Atheist Convention in June 2011. The Atheist Alliance International AGM will take place in conjunction with the event.
