    1. Women Without Superstition is a collection of excerpts from the writings of female free thinkers, almost exclusively American and white, which I think is the collection s greatest weakness, spanning the years from the founding of the Republic to the late 90s, when the volume was published A revised edition or second volume of which there is sore need considering the state of affairs in the world today should seek out women of color and non American non West European voices That aside, the excer [...]

    2. Continuously reading Every woman must read this Annie L Gaylor has written a short historical introduction of different women who have contributed a major impact during their time They spoke openly about their heretical beliefs in a disapproving society Such courage is still required today, which makes this book inspiring reading.Note This is a very large hard cover book and it is not really a book you would carry around It s a type of book you keep in you personal library Great intellectual con [...]

    3. It has taken me four years but I ve finally finished this book It has been a pleasure Each chapter lead to further reading such as Margaret Sanger s Motherhood in Bondage.

    4. A collection of biographies, lectures, and writings of over fifty admirable women Some well known such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and many new to me Reminds me of a collection I read years ago, Herstory Both books share backgrounds, achievements, and contributions.A few favorite quotes Pg.10 Freethought has no gender Books and opinions, no matter from whom they came, if they are in opposition to human rights, are nothing but dead letters Ernestine L RosePg.23 Free thought, free speech and a free [...]

    5. Women Without Superstition is a book about women who do not believe in anything that is not logical or reasonable or without proof 1CFreethought means the use of reason in forming opinions about religion, rather than basing belief on faith, authority or tradition, 1D says Annie Laurie Gaylor who edited the book Because of this it is a book that has a lot of content that is anti religion But even if you are a person of religious bent it is worth reading as it is a close look at 51 women who have [...]

    6. History is written by the victors Winston ChurchillA hefty tome about the feminist history of women that have come unbound by religion and it s constructs Most of our history is fraught with only events written by white men It would seem during this time women and people of color were patiently standing behind these men caring for the children, cooking and knitting Women Without Superstition is about the women that seem to have fallen through the cracks Little is known of the women that helped p [...]

    7. This book is one of the most treasured books on my heavily laden shelves It profiles 50 some Amazing women Women who with strength held tight to their own beliefs women who refused to conform, and women who refused to cease questioning Whether you believe in God or not, you have to admire the courage and strength of the women in this volume Some are famous, who for their contributions to history, often for championing womens rights, are familiar The most fascinating, however, are the women who a [...]

    8. An absolute MUST READ I plan to buy this book 51 women who dedicated their lives to separation of church and state, women s rights, and free thought are profiled, then their writings, speeches, letters, etc follow each short profile Amazing and exhilarating Many of the writings have not been published prior to this book Highly recommended.

    9. So, I read this book a long time ago, and who knows, maybe now I d have trouble with it I know that many of those quoted in it, while progressive on some issues, were HORRIBLY racist as well , but it really did help break me out of some of the orthodoxy I grew up in and helped me be feminist as well At the least, it s a good start, esp for high schoolers like I was.

    10. Thank you, Annie Laurie Gaylor for assembling this remarkable collection of gifted women freethinkers for our edification.And thanks to you and your mother, Anne Gaylor for founding the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which does such fantastic work in exposing the frauds and miscreants who are living off the fatted golden goose of religion in America.

    11. Margaret Sanger, George Elliot, Susan B Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and so many share their views about the oppression caused by Christianity WOMEN WITHOUT SUPERSTITION is a collection of works by freethinking women in history.

    12. This is an excellent, out of print anthology one of the only of its kind, I believe It s a shame that most people know of only a handful of women in this book Some great and courageous thinkers here, many of whom were ahead of their time.

    13. A valuable addition to the library of any freethinker, but it could improved by editing In her efforts to leave no stone unturned, Annie Laurie Gaylor seems to fear leaving out any comment by any woman on free thought ever, no matter how insignificant it is to the overall picture.
