Concerned Women For America Names Evangelical Women of the Year


Concerned Women
for America
The 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

Followed the link from Mudville. I recognize a few of those names and organizations, and I'll have to find out more about the rest. I agree, most of the MSM has not much semblance to real life, as we all know. Hats off to these ladies.

Laurie, You are a careful reader with multiple channels for your study of current events.

If one only read the main stream media, one might not recognize any of the accomplished women on the list.
