“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” – Edward Everett Hale
We believe that we can make a profound difference in our country – one woman at a time, one town at a time, one state at a time.
We know that every journey towards change begins with the first step – your first step – towards involvement. You can have a voice in our future, and the future of our children – what a powerful concept!
The Informed Women’s Network™ is a grass roots organization which is bringing together groups of fiscally responsible women across the country. We believe that many women have turned off and tuned out politics because:
• they are frustrated by the direction in which our country is going
• they feel bullied for expressing their beliefs
• they feel marginalized and excluded from the conversation
• they have given up and thrown in the political towel
• they are disgusted by politicians who are at each other’s throats
• and because they aren’t inspired!
The IWN provides a safe haven for conversation, and a lively environment which makes talking and becoming more knowledgeable about fiscal issues actually fun. Yes, really! We choose to focus not on issues which divide us but on issues which cut across party lines and reach down into the wallet and affect the family of every woman, so we invite fiscally responsible women of every political persuasion to join our conversation.
As a member of the Network, you’ll:
• Meet enthusiastic, like-minded women
• Talk about the things of interest to you without having to look over your shoulder (no PC Police!)
• Learn about the issues that are important and relevant to you in an energetic and supportive environment
• Meet interesting and important speakers
• Learn what it takes to run for office
Most importantly perhaps, we invite your engagement in whatever way you feel most comfortable, whether that is taking action by attending an IWN meeting and mingling with like-minded women, downloading The Brief to become more informed on an issue, writing letters to the editor, testifying before a state committee on a bill about which you feel passionate, or – crucially – simply voting.
