This week on Think Atheist Radio we’re featuring our interview with Dr. Leslie Cannold. Dr. Cannold is an ethicist, writer, author, speaker, and well-known public intellectual in Australia. Though born and raised in New York, she left for Australia in her twenties where she completed her graduate work, ultimately attaining her PhD in Education at the University of Melbourne. She writes and speaks on ethics, politics, and reproductive rights, plus feminism generally. A fixture on Australian radio, print, and television spaces, she was selected by The Age newspaper as one of the top 20 public intellectuals in 2005 and was chosen by the Council of Australian Humanist Societies as Australia’s Humanist of the Year in 2011. Her books include The Abortion Myth: Feminism, Morality, and the Hard Choices Women Make; What, No Baby?: How Women Are Losing The Freedom To Mother And How They Can Get It Back; and her most recent title, The Book of Rachael. We asked Dr. Cannold to talk to us about abortion, feminism, diversity, and a host of topics related to each. Join us!
