Kate Cohen

Columnist & Author

Kate Cohen is a Washington Post contributing columnist and author of We of Little Faith: Why I Stopped Pretending to Believe (And Maybe You Should Too)We of Little Faith chronicles Kate’s journey from Reform Jew to outspoken atheist, her decision to raise her children as atheists, and her efforts to recognize and replace the benefits religion can bring. It also argues that nonbelievers should be more vocal, both to enjoy more honest lives and to help save America. For this work and for her columns inspecting America’s outsized deference to religion, the Freedom from Religion Foundation recently honored her with its “Freethought Heroine” award.
