Annie Laurie Gaylor (born in Tomah, Wisconsin on 2 November 1955) is co-founder of the Freedom From Religion Foundation and, with her husband Dan Barker, is the current co-president. She is also editor of the organization's newspaper, Freethought Today, which is published ten times per year. She is the author of several books, including Woe to the Women: The Bible Tells Me So, Betrayal of Trust: Clergy Abuse of Children, and Women Without Superstition: "No Gods — No Masters." She is a 1980 graduate of the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Journalism.

Gaylor and her mother, Anne Nicol Gaylor, and the late John Sontarck, founded the Freedom From Religion Foundation in a meeting around the Gaylors' dining room table in 1978.[1] She met Barker at an Oprah Winfrey show in 1984. They began dating six months later and married in 1987. Gaylor said that they were "kindred non-spirits".[1]

Gaylor co-hosts a one hour weekly radio show with Barker. Freethought Radio was launched on 2007-10-06[2] on Air America. Her publishing on women and religion has inspired much of the organization Atheist Feminism.
