WOMEN AND POLITICS

The role of women in the public and political sphere is also an increasingly important issue that influences Americans support for different political philosophies. IWF encourages an appreciation for the unprecedented opportunities the United States provides women, as well as how we can continue to improve our society to help women reach their full potential. IWF has a common sense approach to discussing natural differences between men and women, as well as society’s role in encouraging both sexes to make their most of their talents. IWF is a leader in discussing how to engage women in conversations about politics and policy, and encouraging women not to see themselves as victims, but as empowered individuals with many options and opportunities.
