Kim Rippere is a lifetime atheist. While she was raised in a loose Catholic environment and attended parochial school for three years, she never “got” religion. Her earliest memories of religion are kneeling in a pew and looking at everyone out of the side of her eyes. She wondered what everyone was doing? She wondered what *she* was supposed to be doing? She wondered what she was missing and why “this” wasn’t all obvious to her like it was to everyone else! When she grew the answer came to her: NOTHING.
She is currently the President of Secular Woman, a new women’s organization in the atheist and secular community. Secular Woman is focused on amplifying the voice, presence, and influence of non-religious women.
