Host: Jim Schneider
Guest: Penny Nance
Penny Nance is the CEO and President of Concerned Women for America.
At the beginning of 2011, Concerned Women for America began their “She Votes 2012 Project” to encourage conservative women and women of faith to step forward and make sure they vote. Sadly they discovered that only about 25% of conservative women and women of faith actually vote. So they have set out to change that.
Regarding the contention that conservatives have initiated a war on women, Penny looks at it differently because she contends that women have carried every presidential election since 1964. She feels that the Obama administration felt that the way to “message” to women was based on divisiveness and that they’ve tried to position women as only caring about abortion
She encouraged people to call others who may have difficulty getting to the poles; people such as moms with young children. She also discussed how God’s sovereignty plays out in the end regardless of the election’s outcome.
Jim continued with discussion on the following:
