The Concerned Women for America (CWA or CWfA) are a group of right wing radicals opposed to anything that is too sympathetic, or even remotely related to homosexuality. Sounding like a parody of the Junior Anti-Sex League in George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984, their pronouncements complain about a "sex-saturated culture."
Good, good… Let the hate flow through you
CWA has displayed opposition to almost all women's rights, including equal pay, abortion, and maternity leave (unless you're leaving the workforce forever to go be a homemaker, of course), earning it the derogatory title "Ladies against Women" in feminist circles.
Their anti-gay myth-spreading, such as equating homosexuality with pedophilia and downplaying numbers of homophobic hate crimes has resulted in them being labelled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
It is feared that there are at least 250,000 of them.
