I wrote last week in response to an article saying that the atheist movement has become “pale, male and stale.” I was challenged to go beyond that actually provide a list of women we need to be pushing to the forefront and giving a larger platform, which I’m going to do here. I’ll also be providing a list of names of African-American, Latino and ex-Muslim atheists I think should be given more attention. Feel free to add more names in the comments, as I’m sure I’ll miss a great many.
Mandisa Lateefah Thomas
Bridgett Bria Crutchfield
Chelsea Du Fresne
Lauren Ann Lane
That initial list was put together by Monette Richards, who certainly deserves to be on it as well. Let me add a whole bunch more:
Monica Miller (both of them, one is an attorney with the AHA, the other a Lehigh professor)
As I said, I’m sure I’ve missed many, many names. This is really just off the top of my head. Let’s add more names to the list. And if you want to argue that this is not a problem, or that there is no such thing as the atheist community anyway, please do it somewhere else.
