The 19th Century Atheist Feminist

The Central New York CoR recently toured the home of Matilda Joslyn Gage in Fayetteville, NY. According to the museum’s website, Gage was “One of the most radical, far-sighted and articulate early feminists. Matilda Joslyn Gage was deliberately written out of history after her death in 1898 by an increasingly conservative suffrage movement. Equal in importance to Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Gage is all but unknown today. Efforts are under way to correct this.”

This is excellent news, Central New York CoR, who was announced as CoR of the Quarter in December 2015, and is going from strength to strength!

Also, on August 8th, at 231 N. West Street in Syracuse, New York, a huge billboard was erected by the Central New York Humanist Association, one of the cooperating members of the Central New York Coalition of Reason. Having collected donations from local members, Central New York CoR Coordinator, Corrina Allen, said that “In a society where people’s community is often tied to their religion, those with no belief in God can feel alone. We want them to know there is a local community free from supernatural beliefs and religious dogma.”
