NeW is currently on over 20 college campuses across the country, and these chapters are doing incredible things to educate and change their university. We would like to share some of these talented groups with a chapter spotlight. Today we are taking a look at the work our NeW Chapter at Florida State University is doing this school year.
During the fall 2011 semester, the leaders of NeW at FSU were at two Activities Fairs where they passed out over 200 flyers. They also put flyers up in the dorms. They have held two well-attended meetings, and have introduced conservative feminism to several NeW women in the incoming freshmen class. Their last meeting was about degradation of committed relationships, chastity, and female empowerment within the hook-up culture. NeW at FSU is currently reading The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex, and Feminism by Carrie Lukas.
During the rest of the 2011-2012 school year: The NeW at FSU leaders plan to partner with several other groups on campus and to volunteer with the Girl Scouts in a confidence-building True Beauty event. NeW at FSU also plans to continue reading The Politically Incorrect Guide, as well as pull from a few other books like The Flipside of Feminism. They will have meetings every other week and hold social events and volunteer activities in between.
To quote the Vice President of NeW at FSU Natalie Spindle,
The FSU NeW chapter is a great outlet for conservative thinking women. There are not many campus organizations willing to give us a voice. It is nice to meet women that share this concern and want to press on with conservative feminism.
Great work, NeW at FSU!
