What’s NeW in NC
January 11, 2010 | NeW Staff
NeW in North Carolina continues to make headlines. This weekend NeW in North Carolina was featured in Greensboro, NC Newspaper. Charles Davenport, a writer for News & Record in Greensboro, interviewed Jessica Custer after reading a letter to the editor Jessica had written to the News & Record about the implications of Title IX. Jessica, who works as a policy analyst for Civitas Institute in Raleigh and serves as NeW’s North Carolina State Chair, spoke about the work of NeW in the nation and in North Carolina.
Here’s an excerpt:
“The Network of Enlightened Women exists as a safe haven on campus for young ladies who recoil from feminist thinking. NeW, Custer says, ‘is dedicated to challenging the liberal status quo on campuses by embracing femininity and masculinity, valuing motherhood and families, rejecting the victimhood mentality that dominates feminism, and helping women engage their communities.’ “
Way to go Jessica and the chapters at Meredith College, NC State, and UNC Chapel Hill for making the story as well! Keep up the great work in North Carolina.
