On a Conference Call with NeW Leaders

July 26, 2013 | Catie

Yesterday we held our first Conference Call with NeW Founder and President Karin Agness. Karin opened up a conference call during the lunch hour to offer some advice and answer questions for NeW’s chapter leaders. This next school year will be exciting; we have several NeW chapters starting up in the fall, including schools like Boston University and Hillsdale College.

During the call, one future NeW leader asked a question:

How can we encourage students to join the club and discuss political issues when this political year has not been very exciting? Since the election is over, I worry that politics may not be a priority for many students.

This led to a discussion about why NeW is important beyond politics, and a great way to change the discourse on campus before the next election.

One of the reasons I wanted to get involved with NeW and look forward to starting a chapter this fall, is that NeW first and foremost fosters an environment where women can openly discuss political and philosophical ideas, as well as  the issues facing women on campus. We discuss cultural controversies, like the “hook-up” culture, that hit closer to home than complicated policy issues. I believe NeW is going to be very successful across campuses because we serve as a kind of support system as well as a place to discuss the issues affecting the every day life of female students.
