Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

March 8 — "Women Without Superstition: No Gods No Masters"

Annie Laurie Gaylor and her mother, Annie Nicole Gaylor, co-founded Freedom From Religon Foundation, Madison, WI, in 1976.

When: Sunday, March 8, 6:00 PM
Where: Rathskeller Restaurant 401 E. Michigan St, Indianapolis, Indiana

Center for Inquiry Indiana and IUPUI Freethinkers host a talk by Annie Laurie, the editor of Women Without Superstition: "No Gods, No Masters" The Collected Writings of Women Freethinkers of the Nineteenth & Twentieth Centuries. She is the author of Woe to Women--The Bible Tells Me So: The Bible, Female Sexuality, & the Law and Betrayal of Trust: Clergy Abuse of Children.

She will be telling the untold story of the many women freethinkers who led the feminist and other social movements of their time. It is because of these women who challenged the religious influence over civil laws and practices that women have the rights they have today. This is a very fitting way to celebrate International Women's Day. http://www.internationalwomensday.com/.

Annie Laurie makes numerous appearances on national and local radio and television advancing the cause of Separation of State and Church and other issues involving nonbelievers. She is a graduate of the Journalism School, University of Wisconsin-Madison. For more information go to: www.ffrf.org.
