A NeW Way of Thinking in Tampa!

January 27, 2010 | NeW Staff

Another great thing is happening in the state of Florida…NeW has just expanded to the University of Tampa!  Jessica, a professional woman and MBA student at UT, is launching the club.  I asked her why she wanted to bring NeW to UT.  I loved what she had to say,

“I think it’s important for young conservative women to have an outlet to discuss important political issues as well as issues on campus.  I also see great value in establishing a book club.  By forming a chapter, I would like to educate myself and other women about the drawbacks to the second wave of feminism.

I am able to see two perspectives as I am currently attending graduate school and I work in a corporate environment.  I think young women need to be aware of the issues and misinformation that has been given.

It was surprising to hear that the ‘hook-up culture’ exists even in grad school!  Another major issue would be the ‘frowned upon’ view of women wanting to stay home and take care of their children.”

Well-said!  NeW is a way for young women to educate themselves and engage their campuses and communities; this is precisely what Jessica intends to do.  We are looking forward to welcoming this NeW chapter into our network and particularly into the Florida network.  NeW now has 4 chapters in the Sunshine State!  If you or someone you know attends the University of Tampa, please email [email protected] to get connected!
