Concerned Women For America Names Evangelical Women of the Year
for AmericaThe 500,000 member Concerned Women for America named the top 12 Evangelical Women for the year.
CWA’s reports that:
Most of the mainstream media lists of “outstanding” women, frankly, leave us a bit cold — too often, they are famous for being celebrities.
When they are “ordinary” women doing “extraordinary” things — as in the most recent issue of Jane magazine — their exploits fail to inspire.
For instance, Jane highlights a 29-year-old-woman who makes her own clothes so that she doesn’t patronize sweatshops and a 28-year-old who cooks without supporting industrial hog farms.
Another “extraordinary” woman doesn’t date anyone who shops at Wal*Mart. A 23-year-old won’t kiss a guy who eats meat or smokes.
Sweatshops, hot farms, Wal*Mart. Main Stream Media trifecta.
Anyway, here are real women making a difference:
Deborah Fikes – Executive Director of the Ministerial Alliance of Midland, Texas
Rebecca Hagelin – Vice President, The Heritage Foundation, Communications and Marketing
Valerie Parr Hill – Businesswoman on QVC
Gianna Jessen – Survived an abortion and speaks publicly to support the sanctity of life.
Jan LaRue – Chief Counsel at Concerned Women for America
Faye Short – President of the RENEW Network
Lisa Thompson – Liaison for the Abolition of Sexual Trafficking for The Salvation Army
Leslee Unruh – President, Abstinence Clearinghouse
Marilyn White – Major in The Salvation Army, retired
Wendy Wright – Executive Vice President of Concerned Women for America
Dr. Charmaine Yoest – creator of the Blog “Reasoned Audacity” and Vice President of External Relations, Family Research Council
Deborah Young – State Director for Louisiana, Concerned Women for America
