Why NeW Women Are Proud Reason #1

September 24, 2009 | NeW Staff

In addition to a countdown to celebrate our upcoming 5th Birthday, NeW members and leaders reflect and tell why they’re proud to be a NeW woman. We’ll feature a few every day.  

Blayne from ASU:

I never anticipated I would discover a passion for conservatism in college.  As a freshman, I didn’t even know what ‘conservatism’ meant! I attended my first NeW meeting in the fall of 2006 at Arizona State University and I was shocked.  Young women get together and hold intellectual discussions?  Without indoctrination?  And I don’t have to hate men?!  I was hooked.  Since then, I have traveled across the country to hear from some of the nation’s brightest conservative minds, I have helped organize events drawing crowds over 100 and have built relationships with some of the most amazing women at ASU and across the country.

I am so incredibly proud to be a part of an organization of intellectual women that went to a shooting range last week, is hosting a traditional tea party next week, and will host a Health Care Roundtable next month!  That very versatility is one of the strongest assets a woman can have, and NeW is an organization that fosters that type of diversity among women.  Now THAT is empowerment.
