Independent Women’s Network Launches Philadelphia Chapter

IWN Philadelphia chapter

PHILADELPHIA, PA — Independent Women’s Network (IWN), the national grassroots community activist arm of Independent Women’s Voice, proudly announced the launch of its Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Chapter, led by Elizabeth Harris and Bridget Michener. This chapter joins 33 other chapters around the country and an online community of more than 32,000 IWN members. The Chapter’s inaugural event, held on Sunday, May 19, brought together an incredible group of women from the Philadelphia area who share a common goal of advocating for women’s rights and safeguarding women’s sports.

“The Philadelphia launch of Independent Women’s Network is another step in the right direction towards freedom and independence for women and for saving women’s sports,” stated Elizabeth Harris, Philadelphia Chapter Leader.

IWN serves as a platform to protect women’s civil liberties and safety, particularly in relation to crucial constitutional rights. The organization firmly believes that the ability to exercise knowledge and raise our voices should not be controlled by any political administration. This includes the pressing issue of preserving women’s sports, which are currently under threat.

Bridget Michener, Philadelphia Chapter Co-Leader, said, “What we don’t know WILL hurt us. It was inspirational and powerful to have a well-attended event with a collective group of so many intelligent, interested, passionate, and strong women in one room: grandmothers, mothers, wives, sisters, friends, aunts, nieces, professionals, athletes, homemakers, and philanthropists alike.”

Michener expressed her gratitude towards her cousin, Megan Kaltenbach Burke, an IWN advocate and trailblazer in Colorado. Burke’s encouragement led Michener and Harris to establish the Philadelphia chapter. Pennsylvania, being a significant political market, has the potential to foster positive change through the power of information sharing.

The chapter launch featured speakers who further ignited the attendees’ desires and aspirations for policy change, including Amber Schwartz, Executive Vice President of Independent Women’s Forum (IWF). IWN Ambassadors Paula Scanlan, former swimmer at the University of Pennsylvania, and Jen Sey, founder of XX-XY Athletics, also spoke, making the event an unforgettable experience.

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 Director, Julie Gunlock.. “We launched the 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 National Chapter Director, Christy Narsi. “Our Chapters are communities of women who form lasting bonds and are ready to take local action. 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 should email IWN Membership Coordinator Kiara Kincaid  ([email protected]) or visit iwnetwork.com for more information.
