Our Monthly Meetings (2017)
We meet every last Saturday of each month from 4:00pm – 7:00pm at Metro Hotel, Koinange Street, Opp Consolidated Bank, Nairobi .

This is also a time for socializing with fellow atheists and free thinkers.

– 25th March, 2017
– Metro Hotel Koinange St, Nairobi 4.00 pm – 7.00 pm
Has anything changed in the 21st Century?
Dramatically! For thousands of years, law and custom enforced the subordination of wives to husbands. But as the women’s-rights movement gained strength in the late 19th and 20th centuries, wives slowly began to insist on being regarded as their husbands’ equals, rather than their property. “By 1970,” said Marilyn Yalom, author of A History of the Wife, “marriage law had become gender-neutral in Western democracy.” At the same time, the rise of effective contraception fundamentally transformed marriage.
Marriage had become primarily a personal contract between two equals seeking love, stability, and happiness. This new definition opened the door to gays and lesbians claiming a right to be married, too. “We now fit under the Western philosophy of marriage,”
Come for this presentation and engage with us, as we tackle this subject.
Other activities include:
- Reasonable Living: This is an intentional community where we come together to discuss humanist ethics and living well as secular people.
- Something’s Brewing is a safe place for Kenyan atheists and freethinkers to discuss topics related to living in a predominantly religious community in a more intimate, small group setting. This is your opportunity to get out something you might have been brewing over yourself like issues with a family member or co-worker.
- Kenyan Families Beyond Belief is a family-oriented group is for parents in Kenya, who are interested in raising their kids without religion.
- Secular Organizations for Sobriety (SOS) meetings are for secular people dealing with alcohol and substance abuse.
