This is what a conservative looks like.

It’s time to shatter stereotypes.


The #ShesConservative campaign shatters stereotypes about what young women believe today and what a conservative looks like. It is time for young women to stop hiding their conservative views and proudly exclaim, “This Is What A Conservative Looks Like.” Below are the faces of conservatism. Click on the “Meet the Women” images to meet some young women who have submitted essays as to why they are conservative. Only by speaking out will more women learn the benefits of conservative principles. Submit your essay below and share your story on social media with the hashtag #ShesConservative. This year, by submitting an essay below, students were eligible to win a prize as part of the 2017 Essay Contest.

In 2017, NeW hosted the first #ShesConservative Summit for students. The #ShesConservative Summit empowers young women to be a voice for conservatism. Through this exclusive one-day retreat in Raleigh, North Carolina, attendees participated in workshops on campus activism and professional development, as well as joined a valuable network of local student leaders and professionals. Learn how to stand up for conservative principles on your campus and in your future career!  Learn more about the 2017 Summit and check back soon for details about the 2018 Summit!
