Concerned Women for America (CWA) is a socially conservative Christian non-profit women’s activist group in the United States. Headquartered in Washington D.C., the CWA is heavily involved in many social and political movements, through which it aims to support and incorporate Christian ideology. The CWA identifies itself as an amalgam of “policy experts and activists” whose anti-feminist approach to politics bolsters its mission to “protect and promote Biblical values among all citizens.” The current CEO and President is Penny Young Nance.
Funded by / Ownership
The CWA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public policy women’s organization. Funding comes from donations, with millions derived from organizations connected to the Koch Brothers and also anti-LGBT organizations.
Analysis / Bias
Essentially, Concerned Women for America is an anti-feminist group that is 100% opposed to abortion and is vehemently opposed to equal rights for LGBTQ. In fact, the Southern Poverty Law Center has them classified as an anti-gay hate group. CWA also publishes a blog on its website that is pro-right wing and against anything related to the left or feminism.
In short, this is an extreme right christian biased group, that advocates for discrimination of LGBTQ and hence is a very questionable source. (D. Van Zandt 8/18/2017) Updated (2/15/2019)
