Target Way Off Target: Stop Featuring Transgender Themed Merchandise in the Kids’ Department

Target is at it once again and pushing  pro-transgender merch in the kids’ section. 

Take a look at the displays found recently by two IWN members in their local store.   

Why is Target trying to use toddlers and small children  to send messages about sexual identity?

Urge Target CEO Brian Cornell to stop featuring transgender themed merchandise in the kids’ department.  Parents have had enough!


Stand Up For Sisterhood. Keep Sororities Female.

Single-sex spaces have played an important role in elevating women. Sororities give women a safe environment, privacy, and opportunities for them to become leaders and build a network so they can thrive in business and professional life.

Unfortunately, many of the so-called leaders in our country no longer prioritize women’s interests and men are gaining access to single-sex spaces, including sororities.

The University of Wyoming’s Kappa Kappa Gamma (Kappa) chapter was pressured to admit a man, who often identifies as a woman, into their all-female membership. Brave women in that sorority are now speaking out against this breach of sorority rules and bylaws and the sex discrimination they face in their own single-sex sorority.

Join them in their fight to preserve sisterhood. If we don’t, then all single-sex spaces and experiences will cease to exist. Sign the petition to make your voice heard. 

PETITION: Female-only spaces and clubs shouldn’t be forced to admit males. Single-sex sororities exist to provide a supportive and safe place for women to live, learn, and together experience sisterhood. These all-female organizations provide their members with leadership, philanthropic, and networking opportunities. For those who do not want a single-sex experience, many colleges today host co-ed fraternities in addition to an array of single-sex fraternities and sororities. But students who want the single-sex experience and who join a sorority on the promise that membership will be limited to women should not then be forced to include males in sorority activities and private spaces.

This is why I’m joining Independent Women’s Network and people across the country in urging National Panhellenic organizations to uphold Kappa’s bylaws, stand up for sisterhood, and keep sororities female. National sorority headquarters and university chapters must reject efforts to disrupt female-only spaces and undermine the sisterhood. 

I support the brave Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority sisters who are speaking out against the injustice.

Tell NY Assembly Members to OPPOSE AB 709–A—No Men in Women’s Prisons

The state of New York is currently considering legislation that would require state prisons to let male offenders reside in women’s facilities REGARDLESS of biological sex. This isn’t safe for incarcerated women.

New York’s Assembly Bill 709–A would automatically place inmates in the facility that corresponds with their “self-attested gender identity.” Worse, it would forbid correctional institutions from requesting documentation of ‘gender identity’ and would allow offenders to move between opposite-sex prisons at will without taking any action to transition medically.

The risks posed by AB 709–A should be obvious. In other states, allowing intact male offenders to reside in women’s prisons has resulted in sexual assaults of female inmates and pregnancies.

For example, in California, an “inmate with a penis” sexually assaulted a female inmate in a women’s prison. In New Jersey, two female prisoners became pregnant by a male inmate who is housed in the women’s prison.

We cannot allow this to continue. It’s anti-woman, and it’s dangerous. Tell NY Assembly Members to protect women and OPPOSE AB 709–A.

Save Our Sports: Protect Single-Sex Athletic Opportunities

The Biden administration’s Department of Education has introduced a new rule requiring schools to allow biological males who identify as women to compete in women’s sports.

This rule flips Title IX on its head, making it discriminatory for schools to exclude males from women’s teams unless they have developed detailed sport-specific eligibility rules that demonstrate the unfairness of male participation in that particular sport while “minimizing “harm” to trans-identified athletes.

But what about the harm to female athletes? It is well known that males who have experienced puberty have  significant, lasting athletic advantages over females in almost every sport. That’s not debatable. That’s science. And women shouldn’t have to relitigate this point with respect to specific sports at every single high school and college across the country.

Title IX guarantees equal athletic opportunity for both sexes. But every time a biological male takes a roster spot on a women’s team or takes the field in a woman’s sport, a female athlete loses an athletic opportunity.  That’s sex discrimination, and it violates Title IX.

It’s time to TAKE BACK TITLE IX. 

We have 30 DAYS to weigh in on the Biden administration’s Title IX sports rules. Don’t let inclusion come on the backs of female athletes. 

Fill out the form to easily submit a comment to urge the Biden administration not to limit women’s athletic opportunities but to keep women’s sports female.
