Concerned Women for America (CWA), the nation's largest public policy womens' organization, is leading the fight nationally and in the states to protect women and girls' athletic opportunities at all levels of competition. We applaud those governors who have signed bills that protect all female athletes of all ages.
Gov. Greg Abbott (Republican) has called a Third Special Session that begins on Monday, September 20. He has made a call for the girls' sports bill, but the version of the bill called does not protect collegiate athletes. CWA of Texas is urging Gov. Abbott not to deny collegiate female athletes the opportunity to play on female-only teams and to sign a bill that protects all female athletes. Anything less is not acceptable.
CWA of Texas has worked tirelessly for the past three sessions of the Texas legislator to pass a girls' sports bill that would protect all female athletes, and we will continue to fight for the passage of a bill in the Third Special Session.
We need your help to make that happen.
