(L-R: Annabelle Rutledge, Gov. Ron DeSantis, Terri Johannessen)

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Florida State Director Terri Johannessen and Young Women for America (YWA) National Director Annabelle Rutledge joined a host of female athletes and other supporters of girls’ athletics at a bill signing ceremony with Florida’s Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday. June 1. It was an important and energetic win for female athletes in Florida, and we applaud the boldness of Gov. DeSantis in signing the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. Refusing to bow to leftist bullies and the NCAA is a sign of true leadership, and we are thankful to every governor who is standing for truth on this issue.

It was a special Day for CWA and YWA, and we are grateful to have had a presence in the room for such a historic moment for women and for truth! Gov. DeSantis had his sweet little girl handing him pens as he signed, a reminder that protecting women isn’t only about our athletes competing today, but it is paving the way for future generations.
