Vyckie Garrison was once a prominent member of the Quiverfull community; a growing population of evangelical Christians who, like the Duggar Family of TLC’s now-cancelled “19 Kids & Counting,” follow the patriarchal “headship/submission” marriage model of the Bible, and who also shun birth control and welcome every pregnancy as an unmitigated blessing from God.
Garrison edited and published a Christian “pro-life, pro-family” newspaper for 16+ years in northeast Nebraska while home-churching, home birthing, and home schooling seven children. She made waves when she left the Quiverfull movement, divorced her husband, and began speaking out against the lifestyle.
Vyckie has appeared on Al Jezeera America, CNN Tonight, Inside Edition, The Joy Behar Show, The Secret Lives of Women, The Story with Dick Gordon, as well as numerous podcasts and radio programs including BBC World News, Thom Hartmann, The Friendly Atheist, The Thinking Atheist, Living After Faith and Godless Bitches.
Garrison is the American Atheists‘s current Atheist of the Year.
She is a well-respected adversary of Biblical patriarchy and the damages that it can inflict. She started the blog “No Longer Quivering” to provide support to women who are escaping abusive religious movements and to provide the public with accurate and compassionate information on the unique challenges faced by the spiritually abused.
