Women in Secularism 2 Registration Now Open

An awful lot of people were sorry to have missed the Women in Secularism conference last year. They couldn’t afford to go after the Reason Rally. They didn’t know the conference was welcoming to men. They didn’t find out in time to make it a priority. Whatever the reason, they didn’t go.

If you were one of those people, you’ve got another chance. Registration for Women in Secularism 2 just opened today. It’s May 17-19, 2013, once again in D.C. And just look at that list of speakers:

Huh. Lookit that. Yes, I’ll be on one panel and moderating another next year. That means you won’t get the full benefit of my live-tweeting all the sessions, so you’d best see it in person.

Prices are discounted through March 15 of next year, but I wouldn’t wait that long. It won’t surprise me at all if registration is full this year.

    Wow, what a lineup! I’m on the wrong side of the country to go affordably, but from a distance I can enjoy the live tweeting.

    Sweet. I am so psyched for this. WiS1 was phenomenal I can hardly wait for WiS2.

    As I side note: I started reading this blog after WiS1. I sat at the same table as you, Skatje Myers, Lauren Becker, and others (I’m not good with names) for dinner/reading by Jennifer Hecht. I would have been the one with the beard. I mostly lurk around the blog but I wanted to express my excitement for this con. It’s going to be awesome (again).
