Riley Gaines

“Being brave doesn’t mean not having fear, but rather overcoming that fear to do the right, just and moral thing.”

Perhaps no other female athlete has demonstrated more bravery than Riley Gaines, who made waves after speaking out after tying University of Pennsylvania's Lia Thomas, a biological male swimmer. When no one else spoke up, Riley did. And she has been tirelessly standing up for the protection of women’s sports and spaces ever since. Inarguably, her advocacy has made her an icon for women’s rights and the face of the movement.

Paula Scanlan

“The more voices we have, the harder it’s going to be to shut us down.”

Former University of Pennsylvania swimmer, Paula Scanlan, was shamed after admitting she felt unsafe sharing a locker room with biological male, Lia Thomas, who joined the UPenn women’s swim team mid-season. Yet rather than slink away and hide, she found her voice and began standing up for women's safety. As a survivor of sexual assault that occurred in a bathroom at 16, this issue is truly personal for Paula. Today, she has become one of the most powerful advocates for protecting women's spaces.

Dr. Tabia Lee

“It’s not nice or kind, to help someone further sink into delusions. It’s not nice or kind to not be able to ask a question.”

A lifelong educator, Lee gained national attention when she spoke out against misguided DEI policies that have chilled speech and have led to increased antisemitism on campuses across America. She is a staunch believer in the power of critical thinking and true inclusion - as in, encouraging people with different opinions to come together to learn from each other. As Lee says, “We need diversity of viewpoints to learn from each other. We need less protesting and more dialogue”.

Chloe Cole

“I think if you just live your whole life refusing to speak the truth, by the end of it you’ll be filled with regret for not standing up”.

Detransitioner, Chloe Cole, is a brave advocate for the rights of children to grow up with their bodies fully intact. She speaks with authority on the issue of “gender-affirming” care for minors, having embarked on her own transition journey at the age of 12, only to then detransition at 16. Today, via her advocacy, Chloe is successfully changing the national conversation on this controversial issue. She says that speaking the truth, while hard, has given her life true purpose.
