February’s CWN joins the Heritage Foundation’s Institute for Family, Community and Opportunity to present:
Biology Isn’t Bigotry: Sex Isn’t Gender Identity
As gender identity ordinances and bathroom battles sweep the nation, this new frontier of â€ścivil rightsâ€ť has driven a wedge between Americans struggling to discern the line between bigotry and biology.
While the debate has polarized many, it has also served to unite exceptionally unlikely allies. In something of an historical first, radical feminists and conservative women are tabling their ideological differences and standing in solidarity against gender identity legislation, which they have come to recognize as the erasure of their own hard-won civil rights. The Hands Across the Aisle Coalition is a bi-partisan group of women who have committed to working together and leveraging their collective resources and platforms to oppose the transgender agenda.
Join us as five of the coalitionâ€™s leaders offer a perspective the mainstream media too often ignores on this very important issue.
Miriam Ben Shalom is an educator and activist who made history for being the first gay or lesbian person to be reinstated to the military after being discharged on account of the militaryâ€™s policy excluding homosexuals from service.
Kaeley Triller Haver is a rape survivor whose personal experience inspired her political activism on this issue. Kaeley serves as the Communications Director for the Just Want Privacy Campaign in Washington State.
Kami Mueller is the Communications Director for the North Carolina Republican Party. She played an integral role in the communications efforts defending the stateâ€™s controversial HB2.
Mary Lou Singleton is a midwife and a feminist who serves on the Board of Directors for the Womenâ€™s Liberation Front, the radical feminist organization that filed a lawsuit against the Obama Administration to restore Title IX rights to women and girls.
Emily Zinos is a stay at home mom who works with the Minnesota chapter of the â€śAsk Me Firstâ€ť campaign, a project sponsored by the Family Policy Alliance to defend the safety and privacy of women and children.

The Conservative Women’s Network is made up of over 1,000 women in the Washington DC area who are policy analysts, non-profit organization leaders, students, stay-at-home mothers, and more. Women gather to become informed on issues of the day, network with area professionals, and hear from conservative leaders at these monthly luncheons co-hosted with the Heritage Foundation. Most of the events are recorded and the videos of them viewed on our website within a week following the event.
Location: 214 Massachusetts Ave NE, Washington DC at 12 noon
