Anniversary

Celebrate another year of NeW at our annual anniversary dinner

NeW held its first meeting on September 29 at the University of Virginia. Each September, chapters across the country honor NeW’s Anniversary by hosting speakers, book club meetings, and recruiting dessert parties and NeW DC hosts an Annual Leadership Dinner in Washington, DC.

Rejected by campus feminists and frustrated by the lack of conservative principles in campus conversations, a group of women led by Karin Agness at the University of Virginia sought to cultivate a community of conservative women. Within six months, students at other universities heard about NeW and wanted to start chapters of their own. NeW has continued to spread one chapter at a time as young women across the country want to be a part of a group that not only educates, but empowers conservative women.
