Congratulations to our graduating seniors, and thank you for your work with NeW! We are pleased to spotlight some of our outstanding chapter leaders and members. 

Meet Merlot Fogarty, Social Media/Design Executive Board Member of NeW at University of Notre Dame. 

What were some of your favorite events that you participated in with NeW? 

My favorites were our Women’s Equality Day event and the marriage panel. 

What are your plans after graduation? 

Legal Assistant at Americans United for Life and part-time at Columbus School of Law at Catholic University. 

What advice would you give to a conservative woman starting college? 

Don’t be afraid to use your voice! You’ve been blessed with convictions; despite the backlash you may receive, spreading the truth is always worth it. 

How has NeW impacted you and prepared you for your next steps? 

NeW provided me with a community of women with the same Catholic beliefs and traditional conservative values I share within an academic setting growing more and more hostile to normative values and statements of truth. 

The Network of enlightened Women (NeW) provides premier opportunities for young conservative women like Merlot. Learn how to bring a Chapter of NeW to your campus today!
