Independent Women’s Network Launches Austin, Texas Chapter

AUSTIN, TX – Independent Women’s Network (IWN), the national grassroots community activist arm of Independent Women’s Voice (IWV), celebrated the launch of its Austin, Texas Chapter. This chapter joins 21 chapters around the country and an online community of more than 32,000 members.

The chapter leader is Michelle Evans, who has been a long time community leader, parental rights advocate and volunteer for various political campaigns. “My passion for protecting sex-based rights, combating gender ideology, and promoting parental empowerment led me to Independent Women’s Network,” said Evans about the chapter launch. “Now, I’m excited to bring the energy and message of IWN to Texas, and to get women in my area interested in being active and engaged about policies that directly impact them and their families.”

Nicole Solas, Education Freedom Center senior fellow at Independent Women’s Forum, IWV’s c3 sister organization, said, “The launch of the Austin Chapter of IWN is another challenge to the dominant political narrative. Political movements almost always are led by small groups of people making a big impact. I can’t wait to see how this group of independent, civically engaged women will disrupt false narratives and shine a light on solutions to local and national problems.”

IWN was created to build a supportive community for women and to give them the tools they need to make a positive difference in their neighborhoods and our country.

“We heard from thousands of women from across the country who said they wanted a community where they could connect, share ideas, and take action,” said IWN’s Carrie Lukas. “We launched Independent Women’s Network to stand shoulder to shoulder with women who are ready to turn our economy around and fight to save our freedoms by countering the woke mob and standing up to cancel culture and out-of-touch bureaucrats.”

An engaging and growing community of independently-minded women work together to advance shared principles through chapter gatherings and the IWN online movement. Membership to IWN opens access to message boards, curated news, smart content, a resource center, exclusive events, and an action center.

“IWN members are happy warriors who stand up to bullies — bullies with positions in school boards; bullies on social media; bullies in corporations and in politics,” said IWN Director Julie Gunlock. “We support one another, and our members are not alone when they stand up to lead on issues critical to our country.”

Members of the community who are interested in joining Independent Women’s Network Austin, TX Chapter should email IWN Membership Director Jenny Avis ( or visit for more information.

Independent Women’s Network, a project of Independent Women’s Voice, in partnership with Independent Women’s Forum, is a positive, supportive community of engaged, informed, and activated women working together to inspire, interact, influence, and have impact.
