Secular Woman has launched a campaign aimed at eliminating stigma and encouraging people to talk openly, shamelessly, about their reproductive health experiences. The campaign is, appropriately, called #ShameLESS. We are sharing your stories throughout the year with memes which you can share via social media, as well as publishing your stories on our sister site

This summer Foundation Beyond Belief  (FBB) is hosting their first national conference on July 18-20 in Chicago, with presentations on philanthropy, volunteering, community building, practical workshops, and hands-on volunteer opportunities. It’s the first of its kind in the freethought community, and Secular Woman is pretty excited about it.

As mentioned in Rending the Tent: A Statement from The Secular Woman Community, Hemant Mehta of the Friendly Atheist published a piece by Kristine Kruszelnicki of Pro-Life Humanists without comment. Secular Woman offered to be interviewed by Mehta to allow his readers a different perspective on the human rights of women. Mehta initially refused to include a rebuttal or balance to his guest blog due to an admitted misunderstanding on his part. 

As part of Secular Woman's celebration of women's history we hosted a twitter chat to talk about women that are inspiring people and making history now.  Here is the resulting conversation. If the embed does not work, you can see the storify here.
