I cannot say enough good things about the North Dakota Women's Network. I continue to be inspired by their commitment to all women's rights and their flexibility in meeting diverse needs in our complex state. The Women's Network consistently proves itself to be courageous, compassionate, and responsive. It is an honor to collaborate with them to bring about systemic change for the sake of women and girls.
The ND Women's Network is a great example of a rural state's effectiveness in motivating statewide coalition efforts. It's very much a grassroots effort, and while fairly new is already a policy force.
The Women's Network is one reason I'm proud to live in North Dakota. The organization is an invaluable resource. ND Women's Network supports women of all ages and keeps all of us up-to-date on important topics and events. The Director is generous, hardworking, and incredibly wise. Thank you to the ND Women's Network for all you do for North Dakota.
The North Dakota Women's Network provides a voice for progressive women in North Dakota through legislative work, women’s leadership initiatives, and community events. Although I’ve always been interested in government and current events, my involvement in North Dakota Women’s Network activities, such as Women’s Lobby Day, has made be I feel much more informed and connected with the political/legislative process. I’m met many new interesting women with which I feel a sense of camaraderie. I look forward to monthly Feminist First Friday events.
As one of the founders of the North Dakota Women's Network, I am proud to see the organization grow and more young women become involved in the fight for equal rights, equal pay, choice and career advancement. There is no other organization in our state with the capacity to bring rural and urban women together to solve problems and impact change in public policy. The NDWN is the leader!
The NDWN provides much needed advocacy, awareness raising, and leadership opportunities for North Dakota women. Their efforts have increased the visibility of women's issues and encouraged me to become more aware of the issues affecting women and my personal involvement. NDWN brings together women who share their education, experience, and expertise with one another and I have benefited from many individual's knowledge and experience. My experiences through NDWN have helped me learn about leadership and have been inspired do more than just live life in accordance to the rules and expectations set by others.
I love being a part of this organization. It is made up of wonderful women who are willing to join and give their time for the cause of improving the lives of women in the state. It is a big job, but we have started to make a difference by influencing Legislators and organizing events to show that women care about what's going on in the state and in the nation.
I was so impressed with this group of women and how they work on women's issues in the state that I applied to serve on the board. This group was formed by some women who saw a need in the community to bring women's issues before the public. There is a very strong lobbying effort that goes during the Session and the organization has been out front on all issues affecting women. I'm continually impressed with the hard working board members and E.D. who are responsible for the continuing growth of this organization.
North Dakota Women's Network has allowed me to network with other women who feel strongly about women's issues. Before this organization came along, I did not know of a way to be actively involved in women's issues in a way that impacted women from all over North Dakota. The organization has promoted women of North Dakota through various methods and is continually working to improve the lives of all women in North Dakota.
I was active in the women's movement in the 1970s. As I reflect now on my career experiences and the lives of women today, I see again how much progress remains to be achieved. The NDWN is, you might say, and incredibly strong and intelligent
I have enjoyed being part of the network. I have renewed friendships that had been lost over the years and had an opportunity to meet new friends. It is difficult in a state as big as ND with so few people to have regular contact with other women who share my interest in expanding the role of women in public life and want to see women's issues addressed and improve the lives of ND women. Through the network we can connect and find ways to move the agenda forward. The feminist first friday events are great and the annual conference is a source of new energy. The first lobby day was an eye opener for legislators. I hope we can continue to find wasy to sustain the organization.
