Secular Woman Offers Travel Grants to Women in Secularism 2

Secular Woman is excited and proud to partner with the Center for Inquiry to offer travel grants to the second Women in Secularism conference. This important conference is the only one of its kind in the U.S. that directly addresses the needs, wants, and issues particular to women and secularism. The first conference in 2012 was a rousing success with many accomplished speakers, such as Sikivu Hutchinson, Susan Jacoby, and Greta Christina. Building on that success, this year’s conference offers an equally exciting roster of speakers, including Amanda Marcotte, Soraya Chemaly, Katha Pollitt, and Jamila Bey.

Providing travel grants to women who wish to attend this important conference is consistent with our organization’s desire to amplify the voice of secular women. Our goal is to provide more women access to WIS2 in order to connect them to the secular movement by reducing socioeconomic barriers to participation. We have allocated $1,000 to WIS2 for travel grants and we are working to raise more.  Donate here to support increasing the number of women who can attend. To apply for a travel grant please click here. Secular Woman is accepting travel grant applications until Feb. 28th so apply now!
