The Independent Women’s Forum is saddened to learn of the loss of William F. Buckley Jr., founder of National Review and a leader of the conservative movement.  Mr. Buckley had a profound impact on America and will be lived on by the numerous publications, scholars, and nonprofit organizations that have joined the battle of ideas as a result of his leadership.  Our sympathies are with his family and many friends.
