Heard Hitchens say this on one of his debates that education of women would exponentially help to rid the world off religion.
I think that the logic goes something like this: mothers are first to educate their children and if women are superstitions and uneducated themselves then it will become a vicious circle of generation upon generation of religions/superstitions people.
Does anyone agree/disagree with this? What do you think?
Are there currently any visible freethinkers women figures who could inspire large populations of women, especially in the developing world?
