  • Meet Heritage Featured Facebook Fan Karin Agness

    Each week, The Heritage Foundation features one of its more than 250,000 Facebook Fans on its “Featured Fan” page. This week’s fan is Karin Agness, founder of the Network of enlightened Women and an attorney in Washington, D.C. Read her story, below, and be sure to become a fan on Facebook!

    As a junior at the University of Virginia, Karin Agness was walking home from class when she stopped at the campus Womens Center. After taking a brief tour, she asked a representative about helping her found a club for conservative women on campus, an idea that had captivated Agness since completing an internship on Capitol Hill.

    “She looked at me like I was crazy,” Agness told The Heritage Foundation. “She said ‘not here.’”

    Almost six years later, The Network of enlightened Women, which Agness launched on September 29, 2004, is a source of education and camaraderie for young conservative women on 25 college campuses. As NeW’s 6th anniversary is celebrated by students around the country this week, including at the network’s most recent addition, Villanova University, Agness is reflecting on the organization’s mission and continued desire for growth.

      You are absolutely wonderful, Karin. So are the women who take part! If there is two things I admire with greatness, it is the inner strength, and intelligence of women! And our ability to give birth and raise children responsibly and respectfully. You show innate vigor and inspiration! God Bless and best wishes. Thank you!

      Ever since WWII, women showed they could hold a job, raise a family and still be femine. My mother was widowed when I was 19 mos old, she was not trained to do any work other thana sales clerk. She went to school and later was a supervisor for a dictaphone pool. (before tape recoders) She was my example when I was widowed with 5 school age children, I am a staunch conservative Republican, never saw where NOW or any other womens group fit in to raising a family. I believe in these things, God, Home and Country, putting God first helps with the other two.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
