Lean Together: Improving Economic Opportunities for Women and their Families
September 24 2014
For too long, progressives have dominated the policy agenda in Washington with a vision of America in which government is the solution to every problem. Lean Together, a new book by the Independent Women’s Forum, puts forth a positive agenda in which republican ideals of limited government, virtue, and self-improvement are re-imagined. Written entirely by women, the book offers concrete policy solutions to challenges that confront America and especially women and their families to rein in the progressive state, streamline government, and strengthen our economy.
Join us as four of Lean Together’s authors discuss how to improve economic opportunities for women and their families in America. Copies of Lean Together will also be available for purchase.

Straight Talk: An Honest Conversation About Rape Culture and Sexual Violence
June 26 2014
We take any accusation of sexual conduct seriously. But we must ask: Is there a hysteria developing about rape on campus? Where does it come from? Where is it going? Who will be harmed?
Independent Women's Forum invites you to join an all-star panel that will answer these questions.
