Action Needed! Make a call on behalf of North Dakota female athletes.

By | North Dakota | No Comments

You can make a difference in North Dakota by praying and acting on two important bills being considered during the 2023 North Dakota legislative session. HB 1249 and HB 1489 relating to fair competition and equality in girls’ sports for all North Dakota female athletes.

 

HB 1249 and HB 1489 will protect women’s sports at high schools and institutions of higher education by “designating athletic teams and sports for male, female or coed participation.” This legislation prohibits male-born athletes from entering women’s sports as transwomen.

 

Read Concerned Women for America’s Protecting Women’s Sports CWA Fact Sheet for important information on this issue.

 

I submitted testimony in favor of the bills and urged the committee members to give HB 1249 and HB 1489 a do-pass recommendation. The House Human Services Committee Members must hear from those who stand with us on protecting girls’ sports in High Schools (HB 1249) and at institutions of higher education (HB 1489).

 

Please Take Action:

  1. Email or call the members of the House Human Services Committee listed below my signature line and ask them to vote a “Do Pass” on HB 1249 and HB 1489. If you are a member of Concerned Women for America of North Dakota, please let them know. Do not hesitate to leave a message on their voicemail.
  2. Forward this email to family and friends! Every email message and every phone call are counted!

 

Please Pray: Pray for our legislators on the House Human Service Committee by name, that God would give them the wisdom and understanding to accomplish His purposes.

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12

 

Suggested message:

Please vote “Do Pass” on HB 1249 and HB 1289. Protect equal opportunity and a fair playing field for girls’ and women’s sports. Individual male-born athletes should not be eligible to participate on an athletic team that is exclusively for females.

Sincerely,

Your name and town

 

Thank you!

CWA Takes Message Directly to the NCAA: Stop Discriminating Against Female Athletes

By | News and Events, Sexual Exploitation, Texas, Women's Sports | No Comments

Concerned Women for America (CWA) and Young Woman for America (YWA) joined allies in the fight to preserve a fair playing field for college female athletes by taking our message straight to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) at their annual convention in San Antonio, Texas. The rally showcasing female champion athletes and women’s organizations representing the voices of Americans across the political spectrum received nationwide coverage and put the NCAA on notice for legal action should it continue its discriminatory policy allowing male athletes identifying as women to participate and compete in the women’s category of sport.   

 

A petition urging the NCAA to stop discriminating against female athletes was hand-delivered to NCAA officials with nearly 10,000 signatures.    

 

As reported by the Daily Signal, CWA Senior Advisor Doreen Denny, YWA Ambassador and current NCAA volleyball athlete Macy Petty, and CWA of Texas State Director Ann Hettinger spoke at the rally. They were joined by Deanna Drogan, CWA’s Digital Media Specialist, Cassidy Comer, basketball player from Midwestern State University in Texas, and other local CWA/YWA supporters.

 

Speakers also urged the Texas Legislature to pass a bill sponsored by Rep. Valoree Swanson (R-District 150, the Save Women’s Sports Act, which would protect female athletics at all levels, including college.

Media Advisory: Female Athletes to Rally at NCAA Meeting

MEDIA ADVISORY:

Female Athletes to Rally at NCAA Meeting

Will demand fair treatment against male athletes “identifying” as female

SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS – On Thursday, January 12, Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization, will join female athletes, coaches, parents, and policy leaders in a rally during the annual convention of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in San Antonio, Texas, to demand that the organization, the governing body for collegiate sports, stop discriminating against female athletes. 

 

The NCAA allows males who identify as women to play women’s sports, so long as their levels of testosterone meet certain sport-specific requirements. The NCAA adopted this policy despite scientific studies that prove testosterone suppression cannot eliminate the male athletic advantage.

 

“I am one of the thousands of female athletes the NCAA has turned its back on in the name of ‘inclusion,’” said Macy Petty, an NCAA volleyball player and Young Women for America Ambassador. “The NCAA has forsaken our safety and opportunity to compete on an equal playing field to cater to the desire of a few.” During USA Volleyball junior qualifiers, Petty competed against a male athlete identifying as a female which affected her recruiting potential.

 

“Macy and many other young female athletes have lost their trophies, their scholarships, and their opportunities to advance in their sports because of the NCAA’s pathetic policies,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President of CWA.

The rally is sponsored by a Our Bodies, Our Sports coalition of women’s advocacy groups including the Independent Council on Women’s Sports (ICONS), Independent Women’s Forum, Champion Women, Fair Play For Women, Women’s Sports Policy Working Group, Women’s Declaration International, U.S., Women’s Liberation Front, International Consortium on Female Sports, LGB Alliance, Independent Women’s Law Center, and Texas Values.

RALLY DETAILS:

What: Stop Discriminating Against Female Athletes Rally
When: January 12 @ 9:00 a.m. CST 
Where: Outside of the NCAA Convention in San Antonio, Texas Henry B. González Convention Center Corner of E Market Street and Tower of the Americas Way

“NCAA female athletes are under attack by an insidious form of sex discrimination driven by identity politics and condoned by cowards on campuses unwilling to stand up for real women’s rights,” said Doreen Denny, CWA Senior Advisor.  

 

In March 2022, CWA filed a civil rights complaint under Title IX against the University of Pennsylvania for allowing Lia Thomas, a biological male swimmer, to compete in the NCAA championships in female competition.

NCAA’s New President Must Rescue Women’s Sports

Appointment of Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker gives female athletes hope

 

Washington, D.C. – Today, Concerned Women for America (CWA) applauded the appointment of outgoing Governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker, to head the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) as a hopeful sign that new policies for protecting female athletes may be possible.

 

“Charlie Baker’s appointment could be a desperately needed reset in the NCAA for female athletes, and we hope he stands up to lead,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President of CWA, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization. “As the spouse of a former college athlete and someone devoted to children’s wellbeing, we expect Gov. Baker to understand that female athletes should never be subject to harassment, intimidation, and discrimination as they are experiencing in today’s NCAA.  

 

“Outgoing NCAA President Mark Emmert has overseen a decade of degradation of college women’s sports, treating females as second class athletes and an outright denial of our status as women by allowing males like Lia Thomas to compete in women’s sports. Forcing female athletes to stand down so men can steal their scholarships and their trophies, invade their locker rooms and their events has been the ultimate act of discrimination against women. 

 

“We call on Baylor President Linda Livingstone, chair of the NCAA Board of Governors, and Gov. Baker to end the exclusion of female athletes in their own sports and cease denying their rights to equity and fairness in sport. Title IX was meant to level the playing field, but allowing men to compete in female sports strikes a blow to that equity.” 

 

Concerned Women for America has been at the forefront of challenging universities violating female athletes’ Title IX protections against sex discrimination. CWA has filed three civil rights complaints on behalf of college women athletes and will not stop fighting for their rights.

Press Release: Fighting for Female Athletes: Women’s Groups File Amicus Brief on Indiana Law

Fighting for Female Athletes: Women’s Groups File Amicus Brief on Indiana Law

Left and Right Coalition Unite to Protect Women’s Sports

 

Washington, D.C. – Concerned Women for America (CWA) and Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) have filed a joint amicus brief calling on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit to overturn an injunction on Indiana’s Fairness in Women’s Sports Act that requires sports participation in elementary and secondary school to be based on biological sex, male and female, or be designated as coeducational or mixed sex.    

 

Indiana’s law, which took effect on July 1, is among women’s sports laws passed in 18 states since 2020 to ensure female athletes maintain their rights to safety and fair play in sex-separated sports. In July, federal Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson granted a preliminary injunction, allowing a male student to continue playing on the girls’ softball team. In early September, the Indiana attorney general’s office asked the 7th Circuit Court to overturn Judge Magnus-Stinson’s ruling.

 

“WoLF and CWA represent women on opposite sides of many issues, but we agree on what a woman is,” said Penny Nance, CEO and President of CWA, the nation’s largest public policy women’s organization. “Protecting women and girls is a shared interest that transcends left/right politics. CWA proudly joins this brief with allies in the cause from the Left to fight for the fundamental rights, including to participate in single-sex sports, of women on the basis of sex.”   

 

“The obvious harms experienced by women and girls when males are allowed to intrude into women’s sports is traumatizing, and our organizations are gravely concerned with the psychological gaslighting and compelled speech that is occurring on a regular basis in these types of situations,” said Mahri Irvine, PhD, Executive Director, Women’s Liberation Front. “Students, coaches, school employees, and parents should never be forced to pretend that males are females, or vice versa. Journalists or judges using language like ‘transgender females’ or ‘transgender girls’ to describe males is misleading, disingenuous, and confuses well-meaning members of the public who simply want all students to be supported and empowered. The result is a dishonest narrative based on personal belief systems rather than science or objective reality.”

 

“If the Court fails to vacate the district court’s preliminary injunction, it will mark a fundamental shift in American law and policy that strips girls and women of their rights, threatens the physical safety of female athletes, and undercuts means by which women can achieve educational equality. It would not only revoke the very rights and protections that specifically secure women’s access to school athletics but would do so in order to extend those rights and protections to men claiming to be women,” the WoLF and CWA Amicus Brief reads.

Joint Amicus Brief Featured in The Post Millenial

By | News and Events, Sexual Exploitation, Women's Sports | No Comments

As featured in The Post Millennial, Concerned Women for America (CWA) and Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF) filed a joint amicus brief calling on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit to overturn an injunction on Indiana’s Fairness in Women’s Sports Act that requires sports participation in elementary and secondary school to be based on biological sex, male and female, or be designated as coeducational or mixed sex.    

Join CWA in Opposing Biden’s LGBTQ Title IX Rule

By | Barrett, News and Events, Sexual Exploitation, Women's Sports | No Comments

The U.S. Department of Education has officially released the Biden Title IX Rule for public comment, and it is even worse than expected. Title IX was supposed to protect women and girls from discrimination on the basis of sex. Not anymore.  

 

Instead of upholding sex discrimination on the basis of male and female biology, Biden’s Title IX Rule imposes LGBTQ identities as the basis for sex discrimination. Under the fancy title, “Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Sex in Education Programs or Activities Receiving Federal Financial Assistance,” Biden’s Department of Education proposes to rewrite federal civil rights law turning our schools into laboratories for promoting sex and gender ideology at the expense of women and girls.

Here are some of the major changes to Title IX in the Biden LGBTQ Rule: 

 

“Gender Identity” is now “Sex”

  • Rejects that “sex” is defined as biologically male or female:  “on the basis of sex includes discrimination on the basis of sex stereotypes, sex characteristics, pregnancy or related conditions, sexual orientation, and gender identity.” This is a radical rewrite of the basic federal law on sex discrimination that Congress has NEVER authorized.
  • Schools must affirm and accommodate students on the basis of “gender identity” – using preferred names and pronouns and “gender support plans” without parental consent. This “gender identity” mandate extends to all programs and activities, including locker rooms, restrooms, rape crisis centers, housing, athletic programs, and more.
  • Female students lose their rights.  Protecting girls will now be in direct conflict with the “gender identity” mandate giving males self-identifying as girls the right to take their place.  As students and athletes, our daughters deserve to have the law on their side, not against them.

 

School Personnel can be “Parents”

  • A new definition of “Parental Status” empowers school personnel to act “in loco parentis” (in place of parents). Parental rights could be overruled by Title IX policy barring sex discrimination. Schools could withhold information from parents about their child’s “identity” at school.

 

Abortion = Pregnancy

  • A new definition of “Pregnancy or Related Conditions” gives abortion the same status as childbearing.  Schools would be required to provide support and services for “termination of pregnancy.” Any activity that promotes choosing life for an unborn child could be banned.

Biden’s Title IX Rule also overrules any state law protecting women and children from the harmful impact of gender ideology and requires all educational institutions to enforce an extreme LGBTQ agenda in our schools against the rights of parents, students, and teachers.

 

  • Any student or teacher who holds a traditional view of marriage, the scientific meaning of sex, or the value of unborn human life could be charged with sex-based harassment.

Join CWA in opposing Biden’s Title IX Rule. Now is the time to make your voice heard! Tell the U.S. Department of Education you oppose this radical rewrite of rules redefining “sex” and mandating that schools cater to the extreme LGBTQ agenda, causing harm to children and stripping parents of their rights to protect their children from sexual indoctrination.    

 

Visit CWA’s Title IX Action Center to send your comment directly to the U.S. Department of Education today. 

  1. Provide your views on one or more issues in the Biden Title IX Rule which radically rewrites the meaning and scope of sex discrimination in federal law.    
  2. Challenge the Dept. of Education with questions about the cost, confusion, and impact of overturning protections based on biological sex in federal law.

Gov. Wolfe Insults Female Athletes

By | Pennsylvania | No Comments

Now that the Pennsylvania Legislature is in recess until September, I wanted to update you on the Women’s Sports Act and remind you about the upcoming Pennsylvania March for Life.

 

Women’s Sport Act

As promised, Gov. Tom Wolf (Democrat) vetoed HB972, the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. This bill would have provided a fair playing field for female athletes by banning biological boys identifying as girls from participating in girls’ sports at the K-12 and college levels. Gov. Wolf’s veto insults every Pennsylvania girl working to excel in her sport. Women’s sports should not be open to just anyone, and we will continue to stand up for the rights, safety, and privacy of female athletes. Since supporting women in sports is historically a bipartisan position, my question is, why doesn’t Gov. Wolf want to protect women?

 

Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Pennsylvania has been at the center of the fight to stand for the truth about the sexes and to save women’s sports. We are standing up for the rights of female athletes, and we will not back down. We sincerely thank the Pennsylvania Legislature for standing on the side of female athletes and passing the legislation. We are also grateful to each of you who made calls, sent emails, and texts on the bill. You can read more about our efforts to fight for female athletes here and here.

Bipartisan majority sends the Fairness in Women’s
Sports Act to the Governor’s desk

 

Baton Rouge, LA – This week, the Louisiana House passed the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act (SB 44). The bill, which has bipartisan support, now heads to Gov. John Bel Edwards’ desk for his signature. This is the second year in a row that the state legislature has stood on the side of female athletes and sent a bill to the governor’s desk. After vetoing the bill last year, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) calls on Gov. Bel Edwards to sign the bill.  

 

The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act would prohibit biological men from competing on women’s scholastic sports teams. It would ensure that female athletes will continue to be afforded the opportunity to compete on a level playing field.

 

Laura Huber, CWA of Louisiana State Director, had this to say, “Thank you, Louisiana Legislature, for fighting for female athletes and passing the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act. We now call on Gov. Bel Edwards to stand with female athletes and sign the bill into law. Female athletes in Louisiana deserve to have an equal playing field in their sport of choice.”

CWA state leaders and activists continue work to pass these laws

 

Washington, D.C. – Yesterday, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster signed the Save Women’s Sports Act (H4608) into law that bans biological boys identifying as girls from participating in girls’ sports at the K-12 and college levels. Concerned Women for America (CWA) of South Carolina has been working closely with the governor and the state legislature to move forward with legislation that protects female athletes and champions their accomplishments.

 

“Concerned Women for America of South Carolina applauds the House and Senate members who worked so diligently to get this important piece of legislation passed,” said CWA of South Carolina State Director Madison Rainey. “We also thank Gov. McMaster for signing the bill into law. Now girls and women in South Carolina will have an equal playing field in their sport of choice.”

 

CWA’s Young Women for America leader, Emily Cope, a Chapter President at Clemson University said, “Thank you, South Carolina Legislature, for fighting for female athletes and Gov. McMaster signing ‘The Save Women’s Sports Act’ into law. This bill will protect athletic integrity for women and girls across South Carolina and protect opportunities for college scholarships for years to come.”

 

In March, Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) filed a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Education under Title IV against the University of Pennsylvania for its discrimination against women by allowing Lia Thomas, a male swimmer, to compete on its swimming team.  This follows two other complaints filed by CWA.

TODAY! Ask your Representative to sign the Discharge Petition for H.R. 426

By | News and Events, Sexual Exploitation, Women's Sports | No Comments

ACTION: Ask your Representative to sign the Discharge Petition for H.R. 426, the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act!

Fair competition and equality in women’s sports are under threat. Decades of progress following the 1972 passage of Title IX will soon be reversed as the NCAA and Biden Administration move to undermine the fair playing field for females—all to accommodate and prioritize males identifying as females in athletics.
 
H.R. 426 would prohibit federally funded athletic programs from permitting males to participate in female sports and specify that sex is based on biology. Courageous members in the U.S. House of Representatives have filed a discharge petition to force the bill out of committee and on to the House floor for a vote. A successful petition requires the signatures of 218 members, which is a majority of the House. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Title IX. Congress must show young women and girls that its protections still hold true in 2022. H.R. 426 would bring much-needed hope and ensure that girls’ sports are for girls only.

Please email, call, or tweet your representative through our Action Center HERE and urge him or her to stand strong alongside our girls. This issue is nonpartisan. Our daughters and granddaughters deserve better.

To see if your representative has signed the petition, click HERE.

The Future of Female Sports in Missouri – It Depends on You!

By | Missouri | No Comments

By a 6-3 vote, the Senate Education Committee voted SB781, the “Save Women’s Sports Act,” out of committee. Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Missouri and Young Women for America testified in favor of the bill. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Mike Moon (R-District 29), is now in the full Senate. You can read more about SB781 here.

The “Save Women’s Sports Act” (SB781) will prohibit biological men from competing on women’s scholastic sports teams. It would ensure that female athletes will continue to be afforded the opportunity to compete on a level playing field.

Since 2021, almost every state has attempted to protect female athletes. Fourteen states have passed bills into law to protect women’s sports. Sadly, far-left activists are aggressively opposing the bill and are working hard to intimidate members of the Missouri General Assembly from supporting it. Engage today to help stop their efforts!

ACT TODAY! Please contact your State Senator through our Action Center HERE and urge them to protect women’s sports. Girls should not be forced to compete against men playing on women’s sports teams.

Please pray for your state senator by name. Pray for boldness and wisdom, and protection. Pray for the bill sponsor, Sen. Mike Moon, as he leads the fight on this issue. Pray that he will remain strong in the face of any pressure, adversity, and attacks.
