Women: You Can Save America

As key decision-makers in the home, women wield tremendous influence on our future.

It’s been estimated that women impact up to $20 trillion in consumer spending annually in U.S. households. Females make up to 80% of the purchasing decisions in the home — from houses to healthcare to Hondas — and that greatly impacts America’s current cultural and political directions.

Yet women have moved from the Chief Operating Officer of the home, working to raise children, to having full-time jobs outside the home with the need for support services such as child care, housekeeping, personal shopping, and other extensions of adult supervision and decision-making. This need for either dual income families or single moms with careers has shifted a great deal of influence over our children to other adults in the community and institutions that, in days past, held our trust.

Nevertheless, women play a critical role.

Whether it’s been information about vaccines for students or the influence of a set of values and rewriting of history labeled Critical Race Theory (CRT), the last year has provided an awakening to the fact that too many of these adults trusted to impact the lives of our children no longer stick to the defined roles as academic teachers, healthcare providers, or faith leaders. In key institutions where these adults operate — our K-12 schools, colleges and universities, nonprofits, and, yes, even churches that now make the Gospel of the grace of Jesus all about the social justice gospel to fit the culture — there is information and activity influencing our children that should be first taught in the home and, if taught in schools and other organizations, first approved by parents.

After a conversation this week with a Tennessee parent whose child attends one of the most prestigious private preparatory schools in the nation, with yearly tuition close to $30,000 per student, it became clear that even private schools are equipping our children with political activism first and academics second.

This parent explained conversations with her high schooler that revealed all sorts of information about Black Lives Matter, gender and human development, and safe sex practices, yet the student struggled to articulate the role of the Volunteer State in the victory for women’s suffrage in the United States, was only able to recognize the name Winston Churchill but not what he had done, and didn’t comprehend the need for fossil fuels to charge the electric car demanded for the teen’s upcoming 16th birthday. This mom explained that her child was confident in all the culturally popular information, but was sadly and worrisomely weak in knowledge that helps adult compete, succeed, and excel. That parent was about to make other arrangements for education.

Another mom is now planning a local run for school board — arguably the most impactful elected position today in these United States. After her daughter snapped a photo of her teacher’s door decorated to reflect the Black Lives Matter closed fist to match the class discussion, this parent was moved to influence a county school curriculum so that nothing that resembles CRT is taught to her child and thousands of others.

Then, there are efforts to indoctrinate our kids on gender “fluidity,” abortion as contraception, and a right to healthcare. As First Teachers and decision-makers of the family, women are often left to untangle pieces of information placed in their children’s minds and practices that they would never teach in the home or approve of in the classroom.

Women, the political Left has assumed the role of speaking with one voice for the female gender. That has to end! As key influencers in our homes, our schools, and our communities, we must stand as the First Teachers as well as the gatekeepers to our child’s learning, health, cultural understanding, and faith. The political Left wrongfully stereotypes women as a homogenous voting bloc, and the Left is complicit in deconstructing the power and value of the family, which directly corresponds with the invasive growth of socialism.

Women, you can save this constitutional Republic by saving your own family first. Be ready for the fight ahead.
