Countdown Continues…Day 4

September 25, 2009 | NeW Staff

It is only 4 days until NeW’s Anniversary on September 29th.  I thought I would write about one of our earliest events.

The NeW Chapter at UVA invited Dr. Christina Hoff Sommers to visit UVA in February of 2005 to discuss The Vagina Monologues.  She was as excited as we were.  She titled her speech, “Sex, Lies, and The Vagina Monologues.”  That turned some heads on campus.  Actually, it turned a lot of heads.  We had heavily advertised the event.  The advertising paid off.  Over 200 people came to hear her speak, including professors and lots of opposition.  We ran out of chairs, so people were standing in the back.  This event was a huge success!  Putting on events is a lot of work, but successful events like this are worth the work!  Below is a picture of NeW at UVA with Dr. Sommers.

It was freshman year, and I had just “outed” myself as a conservative for the first time at college. “[Since] I ‘came out’ as a conservative,...
