The Right Stuff on Campus

September 16, 2013 | Karin

It is Women’s Week on National Review Online and I have a piece out, The Right Stuff on Campus, which mentions three efforts to reach women on campus that conservatives should celebrate. These include Verily magazine, a speaker recruitment effort at UNC, and NeW. Here is my conclusion:

Will a magazine, some campus speakers, and a campus-based organization turn a majority of college women into conservatives in time for the 2014 elections? No. But are these efforts strengthening the resolve of women who have conservative values? Yes. Are they getting women to question staunchly held views on campus? Yes. And are they influencing the discussion on campus? Yes.

To have a bigger impact, we need to play the long game, and not cede the next generation of women to the Left. Conservatives have a lot of work to do, but these are victories we should celebrate.
