Annie Laurie Gaylor is an atheist feminist. She is co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

Gaylor’s husband, Dan Barker, who heads the organization along with her, is usually the person invited to speaking engagements, despite her longer tenure as the organization’s leader and her many books on atheism.[1]

Atheist feminism is a type of feminism whose advocates are atheists. Feminists who are theists often belong to religious bodies which practice liberal theology. In addition, some feminists practice goddess worship. Since atheism rejects theism, atheistic feminism rejects/disbelieves in the existence of God or gods (see: Definition of atheism).

Ernestine Rose was a feminist and an she was also an atheist - well before today's label of "atheist feminist" existed.

An example of a modern atheist feminist is Annie Laurie Gaylor. She is co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. Gaylor’s husband, Dan Barker, who heads the organization along with her, is usually the one invited to speaking engagements, despite her longer tenure as the organization’s leader and her many books on atheism.[2]

Atheism, women, men and atheist feminism

Since most atheists lean left politically (see: Atheism and politics) most atheist women are feminists. However, this may not apply to atheist men or apply to a lesser degree, given that a significant majority of atheist are men and that the men's rights movement has many atheist men within it (see: Atheism and women). Reddit is a popular place for atheists and a Reddit survey found that 94% of Men's Rights Movement supporters indicated that they had no religion (see also: Reddit atheism).[3] YouTube's most popular atheist is TheAmazingAtheist who is a men's rights activist. Another popular YouTube atheist Thunderf00t is very critical of feminism within atheism (See also: Atheism plus).

Atheist feminism and sexism within atheist population

Atheist feminism criticizes the widespread sexism and boorish behavior in the atheist population) (See: Atheism and sexism and Atheism and rape).

Atheist feminism and its commonalities to feminism in general

Atheist feminism, like all feminism, denies or downplays differences between men and women. Most atheists support abortion (see: Abortion and atheism). In addition, like all feminism, it is an ideology that causes an alienation in affection by women for men.

Leftist atheist feminism and its view of religion

When told that Red Army soldiers sexually assaulted German refugees, the atheist Joseph Stalin declared: "We lecture our soldiers too much; let them have their initiative."[4] See: Mass rape of German women by the Soviet army

Politically correct atheist feminism sees religion as the main source of sexism and oppression in the world despite the widespread sexism within the atheist population/atheist movement and despite: irreligious men engaging in more domestic abuse than religious men (See: Irreligion and domestic violence); the most secular countries of Europe have significant domestic violence problems (see: Secular Europe and domestic violence); and atheistic communists regimes have been the most murderous and repressive regimes in world history (see: Atheism and communism and Atheism and mass murder and Atheism and forced labor and Communism and religious persecution and Mass rape of German women by the Soviet army).

It is common for atheists to have a poor knowledge of atheist history and/or engage in historical revisionism (see: Atheism and historical illiteracy and Atheism and historical revisionism).

Elevatorgate and increased friction between atheist men and women

Elevatorgate is a term commonly used to describe a scandal involving New Atheist Richard Dawkins' 2011 comments made to atheist Rebecca Watson which are perceived to have been inappropriate by a sizable portion of the atheist community and to the public at large.[5]

Post Elevatorgate, there has been increased friction between atheist women and men (see: Atheist factions).
