Secular Woman has launched a campaign aimed at reducing abortion stigma and encouraging women and people designated female at birth to talk openly, shamelessly, about their abortion experiences. Initially this campaign was designed for one month only, but, due to positive feedback, we have decided to make it an ongoing feature. The campaign is, appropriately, called #ShameLESS.
Ken White*, attorney and sexual harassment law educator, recently spoke at FtBCon about Sexual Harassment. As part of his presentation he developed a quiz regarding sexual harassment that was designed to educate and inform. As such, the answers were provided immediately after responses were submitted.
As the only US-based organization focused on amplifying the voice, presence, and influence of non-religious women, Secular Woman, through our @AbortTheocracy project, is committed to protecting reproductive freedom. As such, we have a particular interest in ensuring that everyone receive access to preventative care, including the full range of FDA-approved contraceptives and related education and counseling––without cost sharing––as intended by the Affordable Care Act.
