Nance in Christian Post: Flying the Flag of Our Faith

By | News and Events, Special Feature | No Comments

Nance’s latest Op-ed in the Christian Post encourages Christians to take part in “Faith Month,” Concerned Women for America‘s initiative for people of faith to display the Christian flag. 

In Matthew 5:16, Jesus encouraged His followers to “[L]et your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” By making our faith known to others, and flying the flag of our faith, we are committed to following those words.

Nance in Newsweek: What Does ‘Woman’ Mean?

By | Feminist / Women's Issues, Judicial Nominations, News and Events, Special Feature | No Comments

Nance’s latest op-ed comes in response to Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson’s inability to even define “woman” in her confirmation hearings last week. Her insistence that, because she was not a biologist, she was incapable of distinguishing between a male and a female makes one wonder how Judge Jackson will be able to make rulings about the hundreds of laws that acknowledge the differences between male and female—and specifically those meant to protect women.

Nance in Christian Post: Women Should be Appalled China is Holding the Olympic Torch

By | Feminist / Women's Issues, International, News and Events, Special Feature | No Comments

Right before the start of the Winter Olympics, China tried to clean up decades of horrific treatment of women and pushed “equality” messaging. But China’s ancient views that women are subclass are still prominent. If there is no respect for human life, or for human rights, there can never be equality. Countries around the world that respect and uphold the dignity of women and life itself should be appalled that the Chinese Communist Party is holding the Olympic torch.

Fox News Op-Ed – Nance: 2020 election’s only wave – Republican women double numbers in the House

By | National Sovereignty, News and Events, Special Feature | No Comments

“Conservative women candidates laid the groundwork early for keeping seats being vacated by male Republican members and flipping seats occupied by liberal women who were beholden to Planned Parenthood and the leftist agenda of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. Their efforts paid off … No amount of money from the left’s political donation machine was enough to win these seats. The power of the conservative message won the day,” stated Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) CEO and President, Penny Nance, in her op-ed for Fox News. Read the entire op-ed here.

Fox News Op-Ed: Nance: It’s time to put first conservative woman on Supreme Court

By | Barrett, Judicial Nominations, News and Events, Special Feature | No Comments

“This country was built on the fundamental idea of religious liberty and freedom of conscience. The Constitution prohibits a religious test for public office, and we have fought against those who’ve tried to impose one at different points in our history. …This unconstitutional religious bigotry is what passes as legitimate criticism against conservatives these days. We’ve been fighting it for years now,” stated Concerned Women for America’s (CWA) CEO and President, Penny Nance, in her op-ed for Fox News. Read the entire op-ed here.

 

Judge Who Banned Calling Trans Athletes ‘Male’ Has A History Of Favoring Sexual Predators

By | Blog, Feminist / Women's Issues, Legislative Updates, News and Events, Sexual Exploitation, Social / Cultural Issues, Special Feature | No Comments

CWA’s CEO and President Penny Young Nance wrote the following op-ed published in The Federalist:

“The year was 2010. President Barack Obama was in office, and Democrats controlled the Senate. Obama could practically get any judge he wanted, but he could not get his nominee to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, Robert Chatigny, confirmed based on Chatigny’s track record of favoring sexual predators over women and children. Now this same judge is prejudicing the case against female athletes by imposing a speech code on their counsel.

Judge Chatigny has a very troubling record. As I wrote at the time, serial killer Michael Ross explained in a documentary how he bound 14-year-old Leslie Shelley, stuffed her in his car trunk, and “took the other [14-year-old] girl, April Brunais, out, and I raped her and killed her, and I put her in the front seat.” Ross said he had killed eight women and girls, ranging in age from 14 to 25, and if he hadn’t been arrested, he would still be killing.

Yet Chatigny said Ross “never should have been convicted.” Chatigny suggested that “sexual sadism is clearly a mitigating factor.” So, according to this judge, sexual sadists deserve less time in prison because they are sick.”

Penny Nance: Coronavirus Keeps our Churches Closed on Easter, but our Faith Can Never be Taken From Us

By | Blog, News and Events, Religious Issues, Special Feature | No Comments

CEO and President Penny Nance published the following opinion piece on FoxNews.com this Easter weekend.

“Like millions of other families, my family’s Easter will be very different this year. Years and years of attending church services, gathering together afterward for a huge meal, wearing a new spring dress, socializing and enjoying fellowship won’t happen. Neighborhood Easter egg hunts are also a no-go.

For the first time in our nation’s history, the doors of America’s churches will be shut on Easter Sunday. Think about that shocking statement for a moment. At a time when we most need to draw strength from our faith, we cannot worship together.

This is hard for us. The American Psychological Association notes that during a period of social distancing, quarantine or isolation, people may experience increased fear, anxiety, depression, boredom, anger, frustration, irritability and stigmatization.”

Nance: Coronavirus and the Challenges of Teaching Kids at Home — Please, Do This

By | Blog, News and Events, Special Feature | No Comments

This week, our CEO and President Penny Nance published the following opinion piece on Fox News online to help the parents impacted by COVID19:

“On Sunday President Trump extended social distancing until April 30th to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. Schools K-12 are closed through the end of the academic year. Many workplaces are closed with some workplaces teleworking and families are self-isolating. Our public school children have become homeschoolers which means our moms and dads have become teachers.

When I was a young mom, I was a nervous wreck without the coronavirus pandemic when it came to my children’s learning. Like many parents, I would wonder if I had them in the right school, the right activities, etc., if they were getting enough mental stimulation, and if they were learning at the right pace.

Then I would worry about them not doing enough sports, and then I would stress over their music education. It was constant stress doled out by well-intentioned “experts.”

Now that my last child is college-aged, I can tell you this – you are doing great – just R-E-L-A-X!

I understand, your stress can be intense. One friend told me she’s not only struggling to ensure her family’s safety and meet the demands of her workplace, but she’s now overseeing her 5-year old’s education whom the teacher believes should be working a full school day. (By the way, please give teachers grace as they are also navigating a path that is completely foreign to them.)”
