CWFA Article

What does the mainstream media believe represents great virtues in a woman?

"Jane highlights a 29-year-old-woman who makes her own clothes so that she doesn't patronize sweatshops and a 28-year-old who cooks without supporting industrial hog farms. Another "extraordinary" woman doesn't date anyone who shops at WalMart. A 23-year-old won't kiss a guy who eats meat or smokes."
CWA has different ideas about what makes a woman stand out.

CWA set out to find women whose contributions make the world a better place and we had a very difficult time narrowing down to a dozen choices. Our women range in age, locale, occupation and in numerous other ways are very different from each other, but they all share a commitment to Biblical Christianity and all are pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-family. These are women whose deep faith is reflected in their priorities, their lifestyles and in their contributions to the world around them.
I think their standards are a little higher than those seeking "great" women who can eat the most hot dogs.
