She’s Conservative: Stories of Trials and Triumphs on America’s College Campuses

Emboldening young women across the country, She’s Conservative: Stories of Trials and Triumphs on America’s College Campuses, features the essays of 22 conservative women from 17 college and universities, sharing their stories of how they have overcome the challenges they faced on campus and why they are conservative.

“[Conservative women] often go unseen because we do not wave vulgar signs and scream at passersby. We respect the beliefs of others while advocating on behalf of our own. We may not have been #WithHer, but we do believe in the power of women,” Grace Bannister, a sophomore at Harvard College, wrote.

In She’s Conservative, Neetu Chandak, a graduate of Cornell University, wrote about her experience facing the liberal bias on her campus. “While I expected disagreement from many Cornellians for my views, I was mentally and emotionally unprepared for the backlash, name-calling and threats to my physical safety.”

This book celebrates conservative women who take a stand for their principles and inspires more conservative women to do so. Take Allison Berger of Princeton University, who shares how her effort to call for viewpoint diversity at the Ivy League school’s Women’s Center was met with vitriol and backlash. Or Vanessa Rivera of Florida Gulf Coast University, whose peers called her names because of her ethnicity and conservative views. There’s Margaret Reid from Western Michigan University, who describes how she went from being a shy freshman to a bold senior ready to defend right-of-center policies despite the pressure and mocking she faces at her school. Or Emily Hall at Harvard College, who forged her own educational path after her professors did not teach her both sides of each issue.

With 22 essays from empowered conservative women, She’s Conservative highlights the problem of the lack of intellectual diversity on campus and in the workplace and how these women are overcoming it.
