The new year brings several changes to Secular Woman’s board. Monette Richards stepped down as president to try to take her own advice about avoiding burnout. She remains on the board as vice president, providing continuity and counsel. We thank Monette for her leadership and all her hard work to make sure Secular Woman has carried on beyond its founding energy.

As of January 1, Stephanie Zvan is the new president of Secular Woman. She’s looking forward to continuing to build our relationships with other secular organizations at the national and local level, as well as Secular Women Work’s capacity to train activists and speakers. Keep an eye out for more announcements along those lines coming soon.

Felicity Kusinitz has also stepped down from both her position as treasurer and from the board itself. We’re sorry to see her go. We will be the poorer without her practical and grounding presence. Thank you, Felicity, for your service and for recognizing when it was time to put yourself first.

Secular Woman is currently bringing on new board members. If you’re interested in working to amplify the voice, presence, and influence of non-religious women, we’d love to hear from you. We’re particularly interested in adding board members with a wide variety of perspectives on what this work means and looks like.
