We are pleased to announce a new online course, Sex, Lies and Women’s Studies, in partnership with Accuracy in Academia and the Independent Women’s Forum. Launched at the NeW National Conference this summer, this is a free online course composed of six 10-minute classes. Karin Agness, NeW Founder, was pleased to kick off Conservative University’s first class with: Deconstructing “Modern Feminism.” This course is an alternative resource for college students and covers a range of topics such as campus feminism, pay equality, healthcare freedom, and the so-called “War on Women.” Check out short summaries of the six classes below!
Deconstructing Women’s Studies

Deconstructing Modern Feminism
Star Parker: President of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE)
In her segment, Star Parker uncovers the truth behind the left’s “war on poverty” that seeks to attack religion, marriage, and families. The left has waged its own war on American institutions, each of which has weakened society and led to an abundance of poverty, welfare, and entitlement programs, hurting the very people the left claims to champion. Watch.
Deconstructing Pay Inequality
Diana Furchgott-Roth: Director of Economics21 and Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute
Diana Furchtgott-Roth discusses the myths and realities surrounding the gender pay gap, often represented by the 77% statistic. The truth about the pay gap lies within the individual choices of men and women in terms of workplace flexibility, not on discriminatory policies that harm women in the workplace. Watch.
Obamacare vs. Women
Hadley Heath Manning: Director of Health Policy at the Independent Women’s Forum
Hadley Heath Manning discusses the false perception that women focus solely on free contraceptives and birth control. According to Manning, women care about accessible and affordable health care. Obamacare has caused premiums to skyrocket and costs to increase, leaving a negative impact on women across America looking for healthcare coverage. Watch.
