Let the UnCelebration Begin!

According to my Twitter feed, Ms. Magazine is gearing up to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Now, I'll be honest and admit that I think I have purchased and read all of one issue of the rag in those forty years.  I didn't think I needed to know anything more than its name and that of it's foundress, Gloria Steinhem.  I still think that's all anyone needs to know about whether or not to subscribe or celebrate its forty years of existence.

So I am engaging in an UnCelebration and inviting you to join with me.  The goal is to give $40 (or more) to an organization opposing the the agenda of feminism and Ms. Magazine.  Instead of celebrating 40 years of an anti-woman agenda, I want to celebrate and encourage organizations and individuals that celebrate, support and act as advocates on behalf of women's real equality, rights and protection.  To that end, the first organization I am making a donation to is:


Concerned Women for America is the largest public policy women's organization in the country.   Founded thirty years ago by Dr. Beverly LaHaye, CWforA arms women for the cultural battle raging across our land, with the reminder that we protect godly values through prayer and action.  Focusing on six key areas:  the family, the sanctity of human life, religious liberty, education, pornography and national sovereignty, CWforA equips women for prayer and action through local chapters and the work of policy experts in the national offices.  An important part of their work is the Beverly LaHaye Institute, their think tank where my friend, Dr. Janice Shaw Crouse, serves as Senior Fellow.

I am UnCelebrating Ms. Magazine by making a donation to CWforA because godly women know prayer precedes action.
