The NeW Florida Regional Conference 2014

October 13, 2014 | Amy Sapp

Where do you find a group of collegiate women on a Saturday morning? The residence halls? The library?

On the morning of Saturday, September 27, you could find one particular group of young college women at the Arredondo Café at the University of Florida meeting to debate issues of conservatism and feminism at the state of Florida’s first regional NeW conference!


What makes a group of women arise early on a Saturday morning in the heat of September in Gainesville, Florida? The answer is simple: encouraging discussion and empowering education.

These women, all members of NeW chapters from Florida Colleges, sought to enrich their own minds through several breakout leadership workouts paired with controversial conversations of the fate of feminism, conservatism, and even chivalry in today’s society.

But leadership and conservatism were not the only two topics covered at NeW’s premiere regional state conference; the Floridians also discussed moving videos produced by Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, an organization that seeks to end the gendercide of female children in both China and India. This November, Britt Riner the Interim Executive Director at WRWF, will be hosted by the NeW UF chapter.

“It’s encouraging to know that NeW not only educates young women about true liberty but also empowers us to be caring conservative women who are eager to serve others.” -Afrina Ahmed, Chapter Leader

All in all, the Florida Regional NeW Conference may be summed up in two simple words: utterly empowering.
