Go Vote for somebody in this poll:
Who was the most influential female atheist of 2009?
…here’s a poll focusing just on the female voices of atheism. Who do you think was the most influential female atheist of 2009? …
I’m having a very hard time as this list includes some friends, some colleagues, some of my blog readers, and others what I think deserve to be voted on. Greta Christina has a great blog and is a frequent commenter here. I think she’s actually winning. There are some big institutional names like Annie Laurie Gaylor and my long time friend Genie Scott. Rebecca Watsonat at Skepchick certainly deserves to win this in much the same way as Greta, because of a rise to importance without the institutional cover (not that Genie and Annie do not!
And then of course there are all those female atheists who are not on the list but who have been very influential to me, like my wife, my daughter, my friends Stephanie, Desiree Schell and Barbara Drescher, to name only a few.
Uffda, this is very difficult. I may have to sign on to Jen’s blog (who should also be on the list perhaps?) from several different computers and vote for several candidates.
